lyrics

There was a reason
For the inquiry
Into the reason
For the inquiry
But it had become somewhat ambiguous and vague over the decades

He was fully aware
That it would take a while
He was fully prepared
To go the extra mile

Jeff had a hunch that
The problem’s root lay
In its own presence
So he decided
To abandon common practices and use unconventional methods

He was fully aware
That it would take a while
He was fully prepared
To go the extra mile

They found his boots right next to the machine
The strange device he had developed
A mechanism to cancel out
Existence against existence

The apparatus was so complex
They couldn’t even find the door
Through which he must have climbed inside
For his eternal ride

So they dismantled the contraption
A tortuous process that took weeks
But they could never find a trace of him

Except for one hair
Of his mighty white beard
Which was stuck in a gap
Everything else
Seemed to have disappeared
