Exempt of Every Faculty

 

They say: you can lead a horse to water,

But you can’t make him drink;

I say: you can teach a youth to read,

But you can’t make him think,

Because he’s exempt of every faculty.

 

The end is coming, it’s written in the stars,

But is it just about Pluto conjunct Mars?

I want to warn the world of its dangerous path,

But no one cares; it’s just a bunch of math.

 

They say: you can lead a horse to water,

But you can’t make him drink;

I say: you can teach a youth to read,

But you can’t make him think,

Because he’s exempt of every faculty.

 

World leaders come, then world leaders go,

And the rest of us are buried in the snow.

We haven’t learned this lesson that power makes corrupt,

But given the same chance, we’d grab the golden cup.

 

They say: you can lead a horse to water,

But you can’t make him drink;

I say: you can teach a youth to read,

But you can’t make him think,

Because he’s exempt of every faculty.

 

(Bridge) All we really need, we already have:

Believe it or not, all we need is love.

 

Success is an advertiser’s dream:

We chase a dangling carrot ‘til we scream.

They hook us with sex, then add in some spice

But we forget that making money isn’t nice.

 

They say you can lead a horse to water,

But you can’t make him drink;

I say you can teach a youth to read,

But you can’t make him think,

Because he’s exempt of every faculty.

 

Yes, we’re exempt of every faculty.
