"A Free Thinker" as written by and Laura Nyro....
You don't have your own
You're livin' through others
Toss and turn at night
But you play it demure
And what's more
You don't think you've got the right
To be a free thinker
You could give yourself the right
You could shine your special light

Are you a consumer
A mere number
On a supermarket line?
Wear a perfect mask
And never show your feelings
Maybe you can make the time
To be a free thinker
You could find your own style
You may feel more alive

Do you ever wonder
Can we save our planet
And where will it go in time?
While hawks destroy
And healers send joy
Back to the starry night line
For a free thinker
With some individuality
You may find you feel more free

    General CommentAccording to the liner notes, the word "hawks" is "being used in its traditional sense of war consciousness, not in reference to the spirit of the soaring bird."
