I Should Be Allowed To Think

This song was written as satire, and I think it is very apt that I post it here, because I should be allowed to think; to post satiric songs on my blog.

  1. I Should Be Allowed To Think

    I saw the best minds of my generation
    Destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical
    I should be allowed to glue my poster
    I should be allowed to think

    I should be allowed to glue my poster
    I should be allowed to think
    I should be allowed to think
    I should be allowed to think
    And I should be allowed to blurt the merest idea
    If by random whim, one occurs to me
    If necessary, leave paper stains on the gray utility pole

    I saw the worst bands of my generation
    Applied by magic marker to dry wall
    I should be allowed to shoot my mouth off
    I should have a call in show

    I should be allowed to glue my poster
    I should be allowed to think
    I should be allowed to think
    I should be allowed to think
    And I should be allowed to blurt the merest idea
    If by random whim, one occurs to me
    If necessary, leave paper stains on the gray utility pole

    I am not allowed
    To ever come up with a single original thought
    I am not allowed
    To meet the criminal government agent who oppresses me

    I was the worst hope of my generation
    Destroyed by madness, starving, hysterical
    I should be allowed to share my feelings
    I should be allowed to feel

    I should be allowed to glue my poster
    I should be allowed to think
    I should be allowed to think
    I should be allowed to think
    And I should be allowed to blurt the merest idea
    If by random whim one occurs to me
    But sadly, this can never be

    I am not allowed to think
    I am not allowed to think
    I am not allowed to think (I am not allowed to think)
    I am not allowed to think (I am not allowed to think)
    I am not allowed to think (I am not allowed to think)
    I am not allowed to think (I am not allowed to think)
