I don't need to know
Why the oceans blue or how the flowers grow
I don't need to live
Waiting on someone to forgive me for my sins

Like my father before me
I'm a working man, a working man

But I don't need to believe in something that won't save my sanity

No I don't need I don't need to know no I don't need to know
I don't need to know I don't need to know

I don't want to live in a world where faces change from day to day
I don't want my life to be
So full of doubt and misery

The years now past without a trace
It's something that I'm learning to embrace
How most fun nights are spent awake
Think about how I don't want to live that way

No I don't want to live
I don't want to live

I don't know but I've been told
If you don't believe the devil owns your soul
Well If this is the truth then to hell I go
Cause I don't need to know

    God may not be real, but if you're like dallas, you don't want to think about it, because truthfully, you don't need to know about this mystery. Period.

    This song is about why dallas doesn't believe in god. When he says " i don't need to know why the ocean's blue... " he's saying that he doesn't need a reason for why things are the way they are. The whole song is just a lot of metaphors for why he doesn't believe.
