I've looked under chairs
I've looked under tables
I try to find the key
To fifty million fables

[Chorus]
They call me the Seeker
I've been searching low and high
I won't find what I'm after
Till the day I die

I asked my idols
The questions to my mother
I bought tickets just anywhere
Hoping to discover

[Chorus]

People tend to hate me
Cause I never smile
As I ransack their homes
They want to shake my hand
Focused in on nowhere
Investigating miles
I'm a Seeker, I'm a really desperate man!

I asked Bobby Dylan
I asked the Beatles
I asked Timothy Leary
But he didn't help me either

They call me the Seeker
I've been looking low and high
I won't get to get what I'm after
Till the day I die

I learned how to raise my voice in anger
Now look at my face
Ain't this a smile?
I'm happy when life's good
And when it's bad, I cry
I got values
But I don't know how or why

I'm looking for me!
You're looking for you!
We're looking at each other
And we don't know what to do!

[Chorus]

I won't get to get what I'm after
Till the day I die!
