about

A song for my niece.

lyrics

Children make memories
And then form history
Children with opinions
On abortion pills and drug induced thrills
Obey your elders, one and all
Although the order is tall

Parents sing melodies
Intertwined with morality
Parents are worried
For their sons and daughters, that they won't make it to the top
Suffocate them with your ideology and dogma
Although it might be wrong

I hope you find a place to call your own
I hope you find that everyone's completely the same
And everyone's completely unique
I hope that you never follow blindly along
That you figure out right and wrong for yourself
And I hope that you learn
That no advice is beneath you
And nobody is out to defeat you
Grow strong but not so strong that you can't change:
That's all I've ever had to say

Teachers sell history
And preachers sell the mystery
Both are hungry for your mind
But you'll find
They're all a little insecure
Because they're not quite sure

Governors and senators
Make dichotomy reality
They'll give you their guidelines
And they'll yell from the sidelines
But they don't know me or know you
It's true, they're fools
Don't let them get in your head

I hope you find a place to call your own
I hope you find that everyone's completely the same
And everyone's completely unique
I hope that you never follow blindly along
That you figure out right and wrong for yourself
And I hope that you learn
That no advice is beneath you
And nobody is out to defeat you
Grow strong but not so strong that you can't change:
That's all I've ever had to say
