Is there a difference between yes and no
Is there a difference between up and down
Must I fear what others fear
What nonsense

Some people are content
Enjoying things that belong to tradition
With the seasons they cast their lot
Without a question

Other men are clear and bright and solid
Other men are sharp and clever and jolly
And we go wo oh oh wo oh oh oh wo

Is there a difference between high and low
Is there a difference between then and now
Do we have to live in pain and fear
What nonsense

People are drifting like the waves on the sea
Without direction like the restless wind
Not knowing forward not knowing back
Just existing

Other men are strong and full of courage
Other men are witty and full of knowledge
And we go wo oh oh wo oh oh wo

Other men are clear and bright and solid
I alone am drifting on the sea
Other men are sharp and clever and jolly
Restless like the wind
And we go wo oh oh wo oh oh wo

Is there a difference
Is there really a difference
Yes and no
Is there a difference
Up and down
Is there a difference
High and low
Is there a difference
Then and now
Is there a difference
Yes and no
Is there a difference
Up and down
Is there a difference
