You've got a great imagination

You carry on in the same old way
No lessons learned from yesterday

Talk of changes lost in pages of paperwork

I believe it...
How can we refuse to see
I've received it...
What could be our final destiny
I believe that...
Still we go on from day to day
Knowing what could be true

Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover
You're not the only one
In disguise
Do you wonder
When the change is gonna come?

Open your eyes

You've got a great imagination

We cast the world, we set the stage
For what could be the darkest age

Short exchanges
From perfect strangers
We'll never know
But wish we knew

I believe it...
It's time to face reality
I've received it...
Questioning the powers that be
I believe it...
Are we too confused to see?

Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover
You're not the only one
In disguise
Do you wonder
When the change is gonna come?

Open your eyes
You've got a great imagination
Open your eyes
Show it
Show it

[gtr]

Wish we knew

I believe it...
It's time to face reality
I've received it...
Things aren't what they used to be
I believe it...
What I see in you, you see in me

Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover
You're not the only one
In disguise
Do you wonder
When the change is gonna come?

Change is gonna come
Change is gonna come
Change is gonna come
You've got a great imagination

Change is gonna come
Change is gonna come
Change is gonna come
You've got a sweet imagination

Change is gonna come
Open your eyes
Change is gonna come
Open your eyes
Change is gonna come
You've got a deep imagination coming

Show it
Show it
Show it

Show it
Show it
Show it

    i know this song relates to change.
    talking to a small minded persona blinded by only what they can see
    and never opening & broadening there horizons to the bigger world outside.
    but i need help analysing it.
    please help
    :)
