So you think you know just what goes on inside your head, my friend
There is so much more than you and I can comprehend
Things that make you laugh, things that make you cry
Let you love when you feel like you wanna die

There's no answer to the questions that we find inside, my friend
But when we start to wonder why, we wind up further behind, my friend
All we see has always been shown
But there's so many things that I've never known

So you think you know, my friend
But you don't know, my friend, my friend
You think you know
But you don't know

All for one and one for all
It's everything or nothing at all
Listen, my friend
You don't know
No, my friend
You don't know
