Lyrics
Got your own interpretation of these lyrics? Scroll down and share it!

Look around the country, an abundance you'll find of
Mediocre minds.
Sift trough the fodder as the sane justice declines because of
Mediocre minds.
Shrouded under cover, the most flamboyant guise hides a
Mediocre mind.
You got yours, but you can never bend mine with your
Mediocre minds.

When they cry foul, you had better watch out
Because you never know which aptitude they're griping about.
Don't act too smart for their stenoscopic ways.
You'll be discarded away.

Reason's not to be what the privileged define with their
Mediocre minds.
So many sighted people act so helplessly blind from their
Mediocre minds.

If you want attention, then you will be asked to bend,
But the surest insurrection is enlightenment,
Then you can live outside inharmoniously without friends and enemies.

They wanna keep me locked away
'Cause I'm an overactive brain.

Leaders, presidents and the nightly news guys cater to
Mediocre minds.
Reason's not to be what the privileged define with their
Mediocre minds.
You got yours, but you can never bend mine with your
Mediocre minds.
The only natural thing that I despise are
The mediocre minds.
Mediocre minds,
Mediocre minds!
