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
Oh joyfully, playfully watching me
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible
Logical, oh responsible, practical
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable
Oh clinical, oh 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
Please tell me who I am
I said, watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical
Liberal, oh fanatical, criminal
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're Acceptable
Respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable!
Oh, take it take it yeah
But at night, when all the world's asleep
The questions run so deep
For such a simple man
Won't you please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
Please tell me who I am, who I am, who I am, who I am
'Cause I was feeling so logical
D-d-digital
One, two, three, five
Oh, oh, oh, oh
It's getting unbelievable

I was so young when I first listened to this.  I remember it clearly.. me and my friend Tom rode our bikes to visit Melanie and I forgot her name, in the backyard on the boombox this whole album.. it was beautiful, magical.

That is how music triggers our memory.
I was on the USS Kitty Hawk at that time.

Great beat throughout the song.


Living it up. It's a big kick
It's good for you
Watch the big freeze slip
Crack the jackpot, get out of control
If you put yourself down
You'll never win, get out of that hole
Keep your mind open, your head up
You'll never, ever get old
Go!
Your whole world could change
If only you just broke through
'Cause your fears are doing
Nothing for you
Keep your head up, your mind open
You'll always come through
'Cause living it up, it's a big deal
It's good for you
Swap your dull gray thoughts
For fierce demands you can stand up to
Don't put yourself down, you'll never win
So let's all smash through
Through the fear of being real
Through the fear of being really you
'Cause living it up, it's a big deal
It's good for you

I just bought this on vinyl
Swiss is a big fan and all of their stuff has grown on me over the years.

This keeps coming up in my Spotify playlists:
