Headmasters of Mine

Headmasters of Mine

Jeffrey Gaines

I realize they meant no harm
And that they'd seen the truth
These men and women, young and old
Who tried to mold my youth
They were only teaching me
How to get through life
How to punch the clock
And get a home and get a wife
They knew I was searching for things Iâ??d never find
So they tried to break my mind
By paddling my behind
All for the love of an innocent mind
They were the blind leading the blind
All for the love of molding young minds
They were too kind
Headmasters of mine
They themselves were products
Of a past society
They themselves were victims
Of the same atrocity
I realize I must forgive
But I will never forget
These men and women young and old
I'm forever in your debt
They were only teaching me how to run the race
Fill the position with a smile upon my face
Don't ask the question if it isn't from the text
Throw me out into the hall
And ask who wants to be next
All for the love of an innocent mind
They were the blind leading the blind
All for the love of molding young minds
They were too kind
Headmasters of mine
I feel it's really sick how so much is wasted
There's so much food for thought
That never is tasted
Just read the instructions and fill out the form
And whatever you do my son
Don't stray from the norm
All for the love of an innocent mind
They were the blind leading the blind
All for the love of molding young minds
They were too kind
Headmasters of mine
