Dim Little Head

lyrics

Sit down and look straight ahead, boy
You're gonna be what you are
Pick up the pencil and write
And be right, right now
I don't believe in the dreams
In your dim little head
Why don't you prove it to me
And get back in your chair

If we can bear the truth
Become the rest of you, Mother Earth
And when we hear the sky
Open up to your name
We're all the same

You'd better button your shirt, man
We don't wanna see your fur
And though you carry your case
To your desk every day
We still find other ways
To make you feel ashamed of your life
Oh, cycle through the matrix of work

If we can bear the truth
Become the rest of you, Mother Earth
And when we hear the sky
Open up to your name
We're all the same

And if we stay asleep
With our eyes straight ahead
We will be counting the days on repeat
Of the cycle that obscures the sun
Take off your sunglasses, man
Remove the blinds from your head

If we can bear the truth
Become the rest of you, Mother Earth
And when we hear the sky
Open up to your name
We're all the same
