"Mediocre Minds" as written by and Greg/graffin Hetson....
Look around the country, an abundance you'll find of
Mediocre minds
Sift trough the fodder as the sane justice declines because of
Mediocre minds
Shrouded under cover, the most flamboyant guise hides a
Mediocre mind
You got yours but you can never bend mine with your
Mediocre minds

When the cry foul you had better watch out because you never know which
aptitude they're griping about
Don't act too smart for their stenoscopic ways
You'll be discarded away
Reason's not to be what the privileged define with their
Mediocre minds
So many sighted people act so helplessly
Blind from their
Mediocre minds
If you want attention then you will be asked to bend but the surest
insurrection is enlightenment
Then you can live outside inharmoniously
An enemy
They want to keep me locked away
'cause I'm an overactive brain

Leaders, presidents and the nightly news guys cater to
Mediocre minds
Reason's not to be what the privileged define with their
Mediocre minds
You got yours but you can never bend mine with your
Mediocre minds
The only natural thing that I despise are
Mediocre minds

    General CommentI get the feeling that Greg is looking down upon people who arent willing to dig deeper, instead they accept the lies they've been fed since birth. And to make it even worse, these people not only just accept the lies, but beacuse they arent "enlighted" and not willing to learn more, they teach the people around them the same lies.

    General CommentYeah, all that has been said so far is fairly apparent, I'm just curious about the meaning of the word "stenoscopic" in the 2nd stanza.. Anybody??? Even the dictionary in this comment editor wants to correct it. Is Brad so smart he can will a term into existence at his leisure and command?
