can't make an omelette
without breaking an egg
and i can't make a headache
if you don't aim at the head
you had enought of their thoughts
have your own
then you wouldn't have to be such a clone
that just won't get you nowhere,
you thought it would?


this time you've really got something
it's such a clever idea
but it doesn't mean it's good
'cause you found it at the library
yes they were smart but they are dead
and your repeating that that they said
you know it don't make you clever
like you thought it would


it's on!
you won!
i'm done!
you didn't read between the lines
so it won't do you any good it's true
and that moment that you live for
it doesn't live for you
when weekends are standard and pace
we are all showerd in books and berets
and that will just get us nowhere,
who thought it would?

    General CommentWhy has no one commented on this song? It's brilliant!
    Okay, I think it's self explanatory, it's about a person who thinks they're really clever because they know a lot of facts. Things that famous people from the past have said and stuff. But the person isn't clever really, because they don't know any of the things a person should know, like how to love someone etc. The person doesn't have an imagination or anything.
