VII SNAKES – Idle Minds Lyrics

May 31, 2017 9:47 am Published by

So turn the page and read your first chapter,
Create, cognise and capture,
The energy we need to read on and so the seed on like centuries gone we need the wisdom,
to, light up the blue,
Learn it and leave it is all we can do,
Ignorance, arrogance leave it at you,
Cognitive difference power right though,
You stand in a, corrosive winter where the truth belongs to the highest bidder,
Post-Truth, youth, jumping through hoops, convinced of a binary view,
Our thirst for knowledge is often mistook when all they can teach is where not to look,
For the exams you already took, when you’re yet to read your first book,

Page two and now they don’t even burn ‘em
Screens light up your face and in turn I’m,
Thinking infinite knowledge at your fingertips and still I’m not seeing any learning,
Like a noose loose on a careless youth unaware that the floors flawed for them,
And pray for the day that they’re one more fall away for the fortune to enthral them,

Empty hands and idle minds,
Trading freedom for your lies,
You hold it up like it’s a profit

Empty hands and idle minds,
Trading freedom for your lies,
You hold it up like it’s a prophet

Hope is a weapon,
Knowledge is power,
Fear is not a failure it’s a challenge,
So broaden your grasp and open your mind,
Salvage an unbalanced talent,
Your anger is just, your will and your lust,
Truth in your passion and courage,
And Gladwellian shift, for the hours you’ve missed,

Empty hands and idle minds,
Trading freedom for your lies,
You hold it up like it’s a profit,

Empty hands and idle minds,
Trading freedom for your lies,
You hold it up like it’s a prophet,
