As promised, here are the lyrics to The Who's "905" by the late John Entwistle. I have found that I am constantly wondering where every thought and impression comes from now, and this song captures that feeling very well for me. Actually, it captures a lot of different feelings that seem to apply to me.

Mother was an incubator
Father was the contents
Of a test tube in the icebox
In the factory of birth.
My name is 905
And Iíve just become alive
Iím the newest populator
Of the planet we call Earth.

In suspended animation
My childhood passed me by
If I speak without emotion
Then you know the reason why.
Knowledge of the universe
Was fed into my mind
As my adolescent body
Left its puberty behind.

Everything I know is what I'm here to know
Everything I do ís been done before
Evíry sentence in my head
Someone else has said
At each end of my life is an open door.

Automatically defrosted
My manhood came on time
I became a man
I left the ICE school behind.
Now Iím to begin
The life that Iím assigned
A life thatís been lived before
A thousand times.

I have a feeling deep inside
That something is missing
Thereís a feeling in my soul
And I canít help wishing
That one day Iíll discover
That weíre living a lie
And Iíll tell the whole world
The reasons why.

Well til then, all I know is what I'm here to know
Everything I do ís been done before
Every idea in my head
Someone else has said
At each end of my life is an open door.

I was about to post these lyrics when I searched to see if I had posted them before. I had. \:\)

"The Who" were the first 'big' act I ever saw. They played at Birmingham.
I was 16 yo and they were at their absolute height, Moon was still alive, and the act was one long set of rock & roll mayhem.
The next night they recorded the "Live at Leeds" album, still one of my favorites.
