People figure it out, you're just a reflection,
Of all you're allowed to be.
People moving around a single illusion,
To keep you from falling down.

Don't just do what you're told,
Go and try it out or...

People unable to rise, take it or leave it,
There's little to jeapordise.
People what does it matter? You sit doing nothing,
Just getting as fat as you can.

Don't just do what you're told,
Go and try it out or...
Ahhhhhh.......

People living through doubt, it's hardly an option,
To hope it just all works out.

Don't just do what you're told,
Go and try it out or...
Ahhhhhh.......
