Background

A description of the experience

Child of Vision

Well, who do you think you're foolin'?
You say you're havin' fun,
But you're busy going nowhere,
Just lying in the sun

You tried to be a hero,
Commit the perfect crime
But the dollar got you dancing
And you're running out of time

You're messin' up the water
You're rolling in the wine
You're poisoning your body
You're poisoning your mind

You gave me coca-cola
You said it tasted good
You watch the television
It tell you that you should

How can you live in this way?
(why do you think it's so strange?)
You must have something to say
(Tell me why should I change?)
There must be more to this life
It's time we did something right

Child of vision, won't you listen?
Find yourself a new ambition

I've heard it all before
You're saying nothing new
I thought I saw a rainbow
But I guess it wasn't true
You cannot make me listen
I cannot make you hear
You find your way to heaven,
I'll meet you when you're there

How can you live in this way?
(Why do you think it's so strange?)
You must have something to say
(Tell me why should I change?)
We have no reason to fight,
'Cause we both know that we're right

Child of vision, won't you listen?
Find yourself a new ambition
