We lock the children's minds
With what we think is "truth"
We bind them to how our mind's think
All throughout their youth
We lock the teenage mind
With all we know is "right"
We chain their wills to wills of steel
To help them see the light
We lock the adult mind
With politically "correct"
We seal them into parties
To give them self respect
We lock the aged mind
With wars to make men "free"
We constrain them to retired ideas
And hide them overtly
We lock ourselves at every age
To thing we don't quite know
We try to get the world to see
Things we can not show
"truth" and "right", "correct" and "free"
are what we seek to give
constrained and bound, sealed and chained
are how we make us live.
