Imagine A Place Where I Wasn't So Impressionable
And Everything You Do And Say Is Not A Blueprint For Me To Choose

I Didn't See And I Never Killed Anything
I Never Cussed And I Never Heard Anything

I Saw The Choice And I Carried Out Everything

Think Of The Children, What Of The Children
Think Of The Children, What Becomes Of Anything
Think Of The Children, I Protect The Children
Think Of The Children, What Becomes Of Anything
So To Survive, To Stay Alive I Must End The Pleasures
I Afford Myself Everyday

Fate Understands And He Holds It In His Hands
In His Hands, In His Hands
But It Wasn't What I Planned
All That You See Is A Reflection Back To Me
Back To Me, Back To Me
So I'm Never Truly Free To Live

Imagine A Time When The Programs Weren't Miserable
And What You View You Would Digest And Escape From Your Memory
Imagine A Day With Our Actions Unaffordable
And We Can Stop The Turning Of The Earth With A Single Word

I Didn't See And I Never Killed Anything
I Never Cussed And I Never Heard Anything
I Saw The Choice And I Carried Out Everything

Think Of The Children, What Of The Children
Think Of The Children, What Becomes Of Anything
Think Of The Children, I Protect The Children
Think Of The Children, What Becomes Of Anything
So To Survive, To Stay Alive I Must End The Pleasures
I Afford Myself Everyday

Fate Understands And He Holds It In His Hands
In His Hands, In His Hands
But It Wasn't What I Planned
All That You See Is A Reflection Back To Me
Back To Me, Back To Me
So I'm Never Truly Free

Fate Understands And He Holds It In His Hands
And I Think I Understand, But It Wasn't What I Planned
All That You See Is A Reflection Back To Me
I Must Hinder What They See, So I'm Never Truly Free To Live

I Must Pass My Genes Into The Next Generation
That Generation Must Pass Them On Again
I Must Pass My Genes Into The Next Generation
Those Genes Must Carry On Until The End
I Must Pass My Genes Into The Next Generation
That Generation Must Pass Them On Again
I Must Pass My Genes Into The Next Generation
Those Genes Must Carry On Until The End

And All Is Well, That Ends Well
And All Is Well, That Ends Well

    General CommentI'd like to point out that it is "The Subsequent Rating Given to the Life and Times of Jack Valenti". It's Valenti, not Valentine.

    My InterpretationJack Valenti was a long-time president of the Motion Picture Association of America.I think this song is about how people blame media for making children violent despite the fact people have free will and know the differnce between right and wrong.
