lyrics

you can't see the wood for the trees my friend, you are blind
you don't know the hell I've been through just trying to be kind

day is dawning – don't you know it
when we can be free – don't you know it
yeah, you and me
we can all be free

in our new world all is peaceful, everybody wears a smile
eating berries off of bushes, float in single file

day is dawning – don't you know it
when we can be free – don't you know it
no-one will grow old
just do what you're told

follow your leader – she knows everything
no-one will succeed her – she's everlasting

you can't see the wood for the trees my friend, do not be surprised
you don't know the hell I've been through just trying to close my eyes

day is dawning – don't you know it
when we can be free – don't you know it
yeah, free as an ant in a nest
just so long as you pass the test
don't you know you're no better than the rest
just so long as you pass the test
