The Logical Song
    #3797893 - 02/18/05 12:36 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Here's an oldie but goodie from the vaults of Supertramp.  The words still ring true for me, at least.  Being logical can only go so far.  If anything, I am striving to be less "logical, responsible, and practical" as the lyrics go. 

Life is best lived in the present moment in awareness, untethered to the leash of property and tasks, and being "impractical" by recreating, traveling, and having fun.  No problem, mon.  :cool:

"The Logical Song"  - 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 sent 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!

At night, when all the world's asleep,
The questions run so 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.

Though I didn't "know" these words, the song popped into my head after reading the first two lines. I downloaded it, oldie but goodie indeed.

Yes, that brought back fun memories of when it first came out. The lyrics are insightful as well. Thanks for sharing it!
