Every night I go to bed
And take a trip inside my head
And I wonder exactly what my purpose is
Do I live to see one hundred
Am I rich
Or am I poor
What's the score
I don't wanna be surprised

I wanna take a journey to the end of my life
'Cause I just wanna see what it's like
Am I loved
Am I hated
In your face
Or understated
How old will I be when I die
Do I turn out alright

Is my fate up to me
Or is it run by a computer
Will my kids go to school or stay at home
In the future
Is there peace
Is there war
What's the score
I don't wanna be surprised

I wanna take a journey to the end of my life
'Cause I just wanna see what it's like
Am I loved
Am I hated
In your face
Or understated
How old will I be when I die
Do I turn out alright

I just wanna see what goes on
A chance to put it right before it goes wrong
Certain things I say that I regret
And erase them all
Erase them all
Save my friends so they don't get hurt
Get the mustard stain off my favorite shirt
Have more vision than a crystal ball
That tells me all
A crystal ball

I don't wanna be surprised
I wanna take a journey to the end of my life
'Cause I just wanna see what it's like
Am I loved
Am I hated
In your face
Or understated
How old will I be when I die

I wanna take a journey to the end of my life
'Cause I just wanna see what it's like
Am I loved
Am I hated
In your face
Or understated
How old will I be when I die

I wanna take a journey to the end of my life
'Cause I just wanna see what it's like
Am I loved
Am I hated
In your face
Or understated
How old will I be when I die
Do I turn out alright
