Well, who do you think you're foolin'?
You say you're havin' fun,
But you're busy going nowhere,
Just lying in the sun.
You tried to be a hero,
Commit the perfect crime
But the dollar got you dancing
And you're running out of time.

You're messin' up the water
You're rolling in the wine
You're poisoning your body
You're poisoning your mind
You gave me coca-cola
You said it tasted good
You watch the television
It tell you that you should.

How can you live in this way?

You must have something to say.

There must be more to this life.
It's time we did something right.
Child of Vision, won't you listen?
Find yourself a new ambition.

I've heard it all before
You're saying nothing new
I thought I saw a rainbow
But I guess it wasn't true
You cannot make me listen
I cannot make you hear
You find your way to heaven,
I'll meet you when you're there.

How can you live in this way?

You must have something to say.

We have no reason to fight,
Cos we both know that we're right.
Child of Vision, won't you listen?
Find yourself a new ambition.

    Every time I close my eyes and listen to this one it takes my breath away, especially at a Roger Hodgson concert. Above the lyrics this song is credited to both of Supertramp's songwriters, although this one and many of their other hits were written by Roger Hodgson. The keyboard and sax solos are out of this world, he and his band are very tight and actually play better than the original lineup. If you've never had the chance to see them in their heyday, you're gaining so much more seeing Roger now. Just in the past two years alone I've seen him 4 times :) Every one is different, that's why! A list of dates are on Roger Hodgson Official Facebook Page. The extended jams are especially sweet to the ears and soul!
