"The Educated Fool" as written by and Stephen Percy Harris....
I'm an educated fool
So I don't know what it is I'm supposed to do
About this awkward situation
That's been forced down right upon me

As I'm walking down into
On my own into the valley of life
Got a lifetime of experience
Yeah I've got so much to give

Open the page at chapter one
Could this just be that life's just begun
Forever within your darker thoughts Reflecting on everything you've been
Taught

Never felt this way before
Seems that somebody's just opened the door
To the book of life, or is it death!
There's ever anyway out

Someone's looking down on me
To the very inner core of my soul
They won't tell me what they see
But I really want to know

I want to leave my life on my own
I want to lift the unturned stone
I want to walk right into the fire
I want to live out all my desires

I want to go and see the fire burn
I want to see and feel my world turn
I want to know what more there's to learn
I want to pass the point of no return

Do you really want to be
Just another one statistic or feel

That you really should aspire
That you really do deserve more

Do you ever really fell
That you have so much potential inside
What you really have to give
Could be realized so much more

Time will flow
And I will follow
Time will go
But I will follow

I want to feel what life's like respond
I want to meet my father beyond
I want to walk right into the light
I want to feel no fear but delight

I want to leave my life on my own
I want to lift the unturned stone
I want to walk right into the fire
I want to live out all my desires

The educated fool

    My InterpretationWhen I listen to this song, I feel it speaks for people like me. I think it speaks for people who finished a university, but they know they can do more than the power that is given to them and then they end up having depressing lives waiting for time to go...

    General CommentIt seems like a metaphore. I see it as a creature made up by humans, and that creature know that there's something above (those humans) and he wants to know more. Like there were a feeling of emptiness:

    Do you really wanna be
    Just another one statistic or feel

    That you really should aspire
    That you really do deserve more

    By metaphore I mean that it could be applied to humans, looking in the sky, wondering if that's all they deserve. I often feel I could be much more than I am, and that's what that song means for me ^^

    I want to meet my father beyond--- My creator, whoever he is. A god, hasard, something else? Who knows.

    General CommentThis song is about someome who has gone to school, gone to college but realizes how little he really knows so little. I think this song refers to going into the after life two clues are "Have a liftime of experience" (They may not have that much longer to live on this earth) "I want so see my father beyond" (He wants to see his father in the after life, or he wants to see God in the after life)

    Further evidence is what i beleive are lyrical references to heaven
    "I want to walk right into the light
    I want to feel no fear but delight"

    and hell
    "I want to walk right into the fire
    I want to live out all my desires"

    The verse "Never felt this way before
    Seems that somebody's just opened the door
    To the book of life .... or is it death!
    there's ever anyway out"
    Seems to say that there is more then life on this earth, That The opened door is actually death, the way out of a life which is an illuison

    General CommentWell seeing as its one of bomber 'arry's songs then its probably about experiences, I think it might be about a dead family member. it can't be his father because that was in blood brothers but I think thats what it means

    General CommentIt's about bureaucracy exploiting people. Namely, kids....
    The US public school system does a major disservice to kids.
    Ppl are getting fat downtown n in DC.
    Pour $ in the classroom not some chumps' mattress.
