lyrics

The unfettered mind is the terrified mind
It will leave all hope of happiness behind
When you think you have to know so you look over the wall
There'll be no one to catch you when you fall
But you must never question
Or hint at the suggestion
That things are not all that they seem here

The uncluttered mind is the dangerous mind
You can kiss all certainty and sanity goodbye
For untrammelled thought will take you to that tremulous place
Where you feel like you're falling through space
So you must never question
Or even hint at the suggestion
That things aren't at all what they seem here
And the world is not all that we see here
And love is not all that we need here
Yes most of all you must never question love

For the unclouded mind reveals a sun that's too bright
And the Milgram pilgrims shut their eyes, shut their eyes
And stick their fingers in their ears when their Prometheus screams
Do you know what's out there? Have you seen?
