When I was back in high school
They said boy try and make some sense
Grow up and be a consumer
And not a dissident
Don't worry 'bout the system
Just watch out for yourself
It sounded just like the wisdom
That comes straight out of Hell
They said (shut up) don't make no ripples
(Shut up) don't raise no stink
I heard so much of their drivel
It's a wonder I can think

Don't give me that
I want the truth
Don't say for fact
What is only point of view
Don't give me that
I've had enough
We best get back to what was written
In the, in the Book of love

Well, when I went to college
They said boy get this straight
You're just a tailless monkey
You're a hairless ape
We're on a scary evolutionary stairway
Who knows where
Trusting higher education
To get us all there
There ain't no values no morals
There's no rights and no wrongs
Never knowing where we're going
Well it's hard to go wrong

Don't give me that
I want the truth
Don't say for fact
What is only your point of view
Don't give me that
I've had enough
We best get back to what was written
In the, in the, in the Book of love
(Higher)
(Higher)
(Higher education and the Book of Love)

When I came to my senses
At the foot of the cross
I saw the wisdom that comes
From the fear of God
How it is pure it loves peace
It's full of mercy and good fruit
It had the power to free me
The power of the truth
Like a setting of silver
On an apple of gold
Is a word aptly spoken
Is the truth clearly told

Now give me that
'Cause that's the truth
It's bigger than fact
It's broader than your point of view
Now give me that
Can't get enough
When we get back to what was written
In the, in the Book of love

Now give me that
Cause that's the truth
It's bigger than fact
It's broader than your, your point of view
Now give me that
Can't get enough
When we get back to what was written
In the, in the Book of love

Higher education and the Book of Love
Higher education and the Book of Love
Higher education and the Book of Love
Higher education and the Book of Love
