Can't Know a Thing
words & music by Fredric O. Knipe

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know where I've been
No, I don't know where I'm going
And I cannot put a name to where I've been
I'm just sure I'm going somewhere
And there's places I have almost surely been

Now, it's good enough for me
Not to know right where I am
I'm not big on certainty
Can't often say just where I stand
Cause when I get down to the truth
Turns out I've been wrong again

Can't know, can't know a thing in this world
Can't know, can't know a thing in this world
For sure

So I don't know where I'm goin
But I won't run out of time
When you don't know where you're goin
You can't help but be on time
Cause while you're goin you're still somewhere
And right there that's some peace of mind

I don't know where I'm goin
Don't know where I've been
Paid no mind to destinations
Don't need to know how all the travel ends
It's the motion, that's the thing
On which my joie de beaver all depends

Can't know, can't know a thing in this world
Can't know, can't know a thing in this world
For sure

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know where I've been
No, I don't know where I'm going
And I cannot put a name to where I've been
I'm just sure I'm going somewhere
And there's places I have almost surely been
