  • 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
