Talking Heads: The Road to Nowhere Meaning

The Road to Nowhere Lyrics

WELL WE KNOW WHERE WE'RE GOIN'
BUT WE DON'T KNOW WHERE WE'VE BEEN
AND WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE KNOWIN'
BUT WE CAN'T SAY WHAT WE'VE SEEN
AND WE'RE NOT LITTLE CHILDREN
AND WE KNOW WHAT WE WANT
AND THE FUTURE IS CERTAIN
GIVE US TIME TO WORK IT...

    This is the ultimate atheist anthem. A song for people who know that we are all just mucking about here in life from birth to death. There’s no deeper meaning to existence, no afterlife, just this finite amount of time we have to be alive, a life granted through sheer pot luck by the universe, the greatest lottery you can ever imagine if you consider all the people who have gone before and had sex and made babies to eventually make YOU possible.
