    Lyrics

    Don't believe what you hear, don't believe what you see
    If you just close your eyes you can feel the enemy.
    When I first met you girl, you had fire in your soul.
    What happened t'your face of melting snow
    Now it looks like this!
    And you can swallow or you can spit
    You can throw it up, or choke on it
    And you can dream, so dream out loud
    You know that your time is coming round
    So don't let the bastards grind you down.

    No, nothing makes sense, nothing seems to fit.
    I know you'd hit out if you only knew who to hit.
    And I'd join the movement
    If there was one I could believe in
    Yeah, I'd break bread and wine
    If there was a church I could receive in.
    'Cause I need it now.
    To take the cup
    To fill it up, to drink it slow.
    I can't let you go.

    And I must be an acrobat
    To talk like this and act like that.
    And you can dream, so dream out loud
    And don't let the bastards grind you down.

    What are we going to do now it's all been said?
    No new ideas in the house, and every book's been read.

    And I must be an acrobat
    To talk like this and act like that.
    And you can dream, so dream out loud
    And you can find your own way out.
    And you can build, and I can will
    And you can call, I can't wait until
    You can stash and you can seize
    In dreams begin responsibilities
    And I can love, and I can love
    And I know that the tide is turning 'round
    So don't let the bastards grind you down.
