Logical Song

Sometimes music lyrics set and also represent one’s mood so perfectly one wonders if they have listened to you complaining. This time it is Supertramp:

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
joyfully, playfully watching me.
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,
logical, responsible, practical.
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
clinical, intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am.

Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable!

Yeah - I could almost hear my voice singing them. Probably not a good sight...

So which is it, Hazar? Are you radical, liberal, fanatical, criminal or acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable?

Me? It depends on my mood, and how the kids are behaving?

I don't know really about that one way or the other. I have both in my brain, they are always fighting it out like naughty children. You know what is right for all around you but want to do exact opposite...Maybe when I am married and have kids, I settle my brain matter, not before.
