You’re so 20th century like something that used to mean a lot to me I may never change the world you see, but I can lift us out of mediocrity There’s nothing worth taking seriously The best things they make the fun out of me Children of the divine Seeking out the sublime We’ll believe it We’ll believe it till the clocks wind down Chase a dream that you will most defend and when you see a wall you must kick it in We can be the new pioneers who risk the days ahead on the new frontier But nothing’s worth taking your sanity The best things they make you play so free Children of the divine Seeking out the sublime We’ll believe it We’ll believe it when till the clocks wind down
The deafening life of the city You’re trying to drown it out Numbing yourself to the weary to suffocate the shouts Of "I — I just want to be free" Yeah, I, I just want to be Are you really lonely if all your thoughts are shared listening to the moaning of the city echo in despair?
