Lyrics

I had a brother, I had a sister
I had an only child I threw away
I put a match to my diploma
I burned it up with style

Already been an intellectual monster
Already straddled fundamentalist fences
Already sent my international postcard

But I’ve never been completely free
Never been completely free
Never been completely free
From narrow minded schools

I took a minute, I took an hour
I took a day to kick it mentally
And my conclusion
I’m very happy in a depressing way

Already been a public servant for nothing
Already broken down your business defences
Already been an international playboy

But I’ve never been completely free
Never been completely free
Never been completely free
From narrow minded fools

So I blame it on the people who make up the rules
I blame it on the people who dumb down the schools
I blame it on the people who don’t know how to be wealthy
I blame it on the emphasis of getting ahead
I blame it on the television killing me head
I blame it on religion and people who just aren’t religious

Already wrote my communist manifesto
Already wrote the songs concerning the girls
Already wrote the songs you think that you’re playing

But I’ve never been completely free
Never been completely free
Never been completely free
From you, you, you, you, you
