Singer-songwriter Michellaneous plays his song "Unknowing" live at MUZIEK BIJ DE BUREN in Deventer (NL) on December 10 2017.

We sometimes laugh when we look at history and ask ourselves how people could've believed certain things and how they could've been so ignorant. The people who dared to look further, dared to think further, dared to dream, and took risks are the ones that brought humanity further. Scientists, inventors, philosophers, medics, etc. But even the greatest thinkers make mistakes, and we look back at that snickering. But there are probably things that we hold as truth but will be disproved in the future, and will they look back at history with a laugh. That is what this song is about.


LYRICS:
Maybe they will laugh at us in a thousand years
Laughing at our science, our religions, lives and fears
Maybe all we know today will be proven wrong
Maybe in a thousand years we've been extinct for long

Maybe all we know today is a lie or a delusion
So try to keep an open mins, don’t hang on… to an illusion

Maybe they'll admire us in a thousand years
Is our science proven right and do they share our fears
Maybe they will stand on the shoulders of the brightest minds
Like all of us stand upon the shoulders of the early kind

Socrates, Copernicus, Einstein and Pasteur
Scientists should be respected. Knowledge… should be preserved

Do not be afraid to challenge every status quo
Every new idea will result in the more we know
Knowledge is our greatest strength thanks to our curiosity
A little more every day gave us our technology

The “always stay hungry for more knowledge” philosophy
Is what makes the brightest minds reach an… epiphany

Maybe they will laugh at us in a thousand years
Laughing at our science, our religions, lives and fears
Maybe all we know today will be proven wrong
Maybe in a thousand years we've been extinct for long

Maybe all we know today is a lie or a delusion
So try to keep an open mins, don’t hang on… to an illusion
