Greater Good (Bohlen-Pierce Scale)

All I see is dumb dumb dumb.. everywhere
All I hear is dumb dumb dumb.. and dumb again
All I feel is numb numb numb
I just want someone
by my by my side
but I tried and I tried
Cosmos knows I tried

I gave my time
I gave my heart
I gave my mind
But it did no good

I have travelled space and time
trying trying trying
for every handsome face
Now all I feel is numb numb numb
I'm just lost in space
with no one by my side
and I tried and I tried
Cosmos knows I tried

I gave my time
I gave my heart
I gave my mind
But it did no good
as it should

I have travelled space and time
Part of me has died
But the rest has come alive
[Cosmos knows I've tried]
I looked under the hood
And I saw good
[Cosmos knows I've tried]
Maybe no one can see it but me, but it's ok
'Cause giving up has set me free
I will devote my life to curiosity
And to the Greater Good

I'll give my time
I'll give my heart
I'll give my mind
To the greater good
as I should
