Koalas aren't bears and bats are not blind
Lemmings don't dive off the side off a cliff if they're given a choice
It's just popular myth
Napoleon Bonaparte wasn't that short
When Columbus set sail, almost everyone knew it's a spherical world
That places no value on details

Mussolini did not make the trains run on time
You can't see the Great Wall of China while taking a walk on the moon
As some people assume
And lakes aren't just blue from reflecting the sky
Oceans are blue because water is blue, so let's clear that up now
And get on with our lives

And I'll keep running, and you'll keep planting obstacles

Humans use more than a tenth of their brains
Shaving does not make your hair grow back thicker
And don't talk to me, about goldfish memories
Your nails won't keep growing on after your death
An earthworm does not become two worms when somebody cuts it in half.
So don't even try it

And Edison didn't invent all your light bulbs
And Inuit people don't actually have many words that mean snow
Two or three at the most
And it seems that the North Pole is really the South Pole
It just makes me wonder which other assumptions are letting me down
And making me tired

And I'll keep running, and you'll keep planting obstacles
