“Follow me”
Adults set in their ways
Spending all their days
Locked in a daze

 

“Wherever i go”
The Small children hear
Something not so queer
And the children follow along; acting like volunteers

 

“And do what i do”
Now they are all grown
Walking together like clones
Not thinking on their own

 

“When I tell you so”
So, history repeats
And the minorities retreat
As they face defeat.
