lyrics

This is education, brother. We are heading up the river.
This is education, brother. We are heading up the river.

Forget windfall orchards, low hanging plums,
full bellies and idle thumbs

Look here, I want to show you something,
it's all I've got, so you should know
Mine is no ordinary gumption
this salvaged ego, overblown

This is education, brother. We are heading up the river.
This is education, brother. We are heading up the river.

So you can rake your fingers through the soil
and I'll comb for lessons as you toil

We'll build and rake and chop and dig
into the world that we desire
And I know just how to freeze
a mind that once was fire

And I can set alight a mind that I have frozen
to burn it back to the blackest soil and salvage all the ruins
So I can revel in the wreckage
So I can revel in the wreckage

Can you taste the smoldering air?
Can you make a bed in the ashes?
And I'll plant my doctrine in
the earth's belly button.

This is education, brother. We are heading up the river.
This is education, brother. We are heading up the river.
