No Wisdom Brings Solace

This song is by Sybreed and appears on the album God Is An Automaton (2012).

I've tried to fight pessimism
To look for an explanation to the prime weakness we seem to convey:
A strong drive to destroy ourselves
All statements have turned out to conduct to a maze of suspect justifications
Encased between hermetic walls of incertitude

Axioms appear so contrived
And science, the paragon of devious crafts
I struggle to assimilate this fact:
No wisdom brings solace

I start to realize the limitations of my attempt to truly understand the misery of men
The more I look inside, the more I' am prone to deride the basis of every creed:
To know is to be saved

I'm lost, standing at the crossroads with no means to decide on a better course
No choice appears convenient, no pathway predominates
Unsure to ever escape my posture of inflexible disbelief
I decide but to abandon this hunt for significance

Repeat second verse and chorus

Nothing is true, nothing is eternal, there's no reward for steadfast belief
In a flawed system of assumption but a breakdown of cognition gears
To deprave the core of all knowledge and confer it the arrays of faith
Is to increase the prospect of oversight and absurdity
