It's another world we live in here so radical and clean
Every Saturday we protest things out on the campus green
And we came from far to find this place where hearts and minds are free
And we walk together on the grass in peaceful anarchy
Where the things we've amassed are undeniably surpassed
By the value of our goals and how high we can reach
So when no one can pass Professor Leon Siegel's class
It's okay because we still absorb the great things he can teach
We send our greetings from the terrarium
That earthy college paradise where kids can work and play
But you know that when we leave from this terrarium
We're told that we are going to save the world someday
It's another world we live in 'midst the placid greenery
We can talk about disaster and admire the scenery
When we cannot find an answer to our Nicaraguan war
We can order out for pizza and deliver it some more
But while nothing much gets done and what we do just looks like fun
You must remember what we do is more important than it sounds
For when a case is well done in Constitution 101
We know that bigger trials are possible to win on bigger grounds
We extend our greetings from the terrarium
That earthy college paradise where kids can work and play
But you know that when we leave from this terrarium
We're told that we are going to save the world someday
There's a fear that you will sell your dreams for stock and cut your hair
As you throw your graduation cap up in the real world air
Then you see a man in uniform approaching your best friend
As he shakes the woman's hand he says
