Lyrics
wots the use of freedom
when theres no idea of change
& wots the use of money
when success is out of range
& wots the use of time
when youre just stoned out of your mind
& wots the use of working
when its just a daily grin
and me i'm dreamin a dream
that everything i'm thinking
doesnt mean what it seems to be

spinoza eats his yoghurt with
some rad designer d___
while k d laing tells sharon stone
just get on your bike baby
& neitze's's reading superman
but who's this guy clark kent?
while the daughters of the patriarchy
spend themselves in tents
and me i'm dreamin a dream
that everything i'm dreamin about
doesn't mean what it seems to mean

power dressing p____cat
always in control
while life style therapists
take oprah winfrey's soul
while crystal healing dolphin jesus
sends a psychic fax
while a fascist boy soprano
stabs madonna in the back
but me i'm dreamin a dream
that everything i'm seeing
doesn't mean what it seems to mean

well its no use baby i dont care
if the moon's too fat
& the sun's gone square
& you can cry dry tears
& you can sigh thin air
but y still gotta live until y die oh yeh

so wots the use of freedom
when theres no idea of change
& wots the use of money
when success is out of range
& wots the use of time
when youre just stoned out of your mind
& wots the use of working
when its just a daily grind
and me i'm dreamin a dream
that everything i'm thinking
doesnt mean what it seems to be
