The road to Hell and dark despair Is a heav'ly travelled thoroughfare In sorry state of disrepair Dubito ergo sum. But even so, I would not care To tread on Heaven's golden stair If Jerry Falwell's waiting there Dubito ergo sum. Gods will come, and gods will go Kingdoms rise and fall Doubt outlives them all It holds the world in thrall Though all that glitters is not gold Our doubts return a thousandfold And we will not be oversold Dubito ergo sum. CHORALE Dubito, Dubito, Dubito, Dubito, Dubito, Dubito, Dubito ergo sum. Courage falters, vision fades Resolution fails Doubt alone prevails Except in fairy tales So close your eyes and go to sleep And rest assured, life is cheap The road is long, the climb is steep Dubito ergo sum. The moon is cheese, the earth is flat Your god's a hapless bureaucrat So let's just let it go at that Dubito ergo sum.
