"i heart huckabees" song lyrics

From the existential comedy film
"i heart huckabees"
Lyrics to the song played over the end credits:

"It's something unattainable,
That you can't live without.
And now the unexplainable
Has you riddled with doubt.

Things begin,
Things decay.
You gotta find a way
To be okay.

But if you want to spend the day
Wondering what it's all about,
Go and knock yourself out.

Why we're put in this mess,
Is anybody's guess.
It might be a test,
Or it might not be anything
you need to worry about.

But if you're still in doubt,
Go and knock yourself out."

Several times we hear the existential refrain:


The question is asked:

"How am I not myself?"

[Directed by David D. Russell. Written by David D. Russell & Jeff Baena. Music by Jon Brion -- who also did the music for the existential films, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," and "Magnolia."]
