And I don’t believe in god, So I can’t be saved

Brilliant lecture on the pre-socratic philosophers, hijacked by a very rational student, then turns into a wide ranging conversation over the whole history of philosophy and the world. What does it mean to ‘understand’?
There was a time when I had nothing to explain
Oh, this mess I have made
But then things got complicated
My innocence has all but faded
Oh, this mess I have made

And I don’t believe in god
So I can’t be saved
All alone as I’ve learned to be
In this mess I have made

All the untested virtue
The things I said I’d never do
Least of all to you
I know he’s kind and true
I know that he is good to you
He’ll never care for you more than I do

But I don’t believe in love
And I can’t be tamed
All alone as I’ve learned to be
In this mess
I have made the same mistakes
Over and over again

There are rooms in this house that I don’t open anymore
Dusty books of pictures on the floor
That she will never see
She’ll never see that part of me
I want to be for her
What I could never be for you

But I don’t believe in god
So I can’t be saved
All alone as I’ve learned to be
In this mess I have made
