Mindless child, mindless world,
how can you live by what they said
so many years ago and
just stay inside the box and clutch your list of rules
they tell you how to live and what to do
you cannot shout, they silence you.
And Earth is the planet of life, they say
but child, the reason the water is blue
is the tears we cried because
nobody let us leave.
You can plant your feet on the ground
you can look at this world realistically
and you will drown in orders and facts
and whatever they want you to see,
or you can stick your head in the clouds
pop the bubble, break the glass,
for if we look beyond the real,
we truly will be free
to think for ourselves at last
Oh, mindless child, mindless world,
learn to dream.
