We are born to this fantasyCan’t believe what they’ve done to youHard to see all these years go roundTaught to hide all that’s true insideWhat was it likeWhen you were a child? Did you see the worldIn a different light? When the veil came downOur destiny grew away from usDon’t it make you weepCan’t you seeI believe that we were meant for each otherWe’ll get along somehowIf they leave us aloneWhy don’t they let us be...just what we want to beDon’t it make you weep, can’t you see? I can’t believe what they’ve done to youThey’ve got you just where they wanted youWhen we sleep, dream each other’s dreamsCasting memories on a sea of hopeRemember life as a child could beBring it back for all of use to seeWhat was it likeWhen you were a child? How did it feel? Did your mother treat you kind? Mend those broken toys? For in your heart there’s innocenceWaiting to be free, can’t you see? When you were a child
