Well, who do you think you're fooling? You say you're having fun But you're busy going nowhere Just lying in the sun You tried to be a hero And commit the perfect crime But the dollar got you dancing And you're running out of time And you're messing up the water And you're rolling in the wine And you're poisoning your body And you're poisoning your mind And you gave me Coca-Cola 'Cause you said it tasted good Then you watch the television 'Cause it tells you that you should
Ooh, how can you live in this way? (Why do you think it's so strange?) You must have something to say (Tell me why should I change?) There must be more to this life It's time we did something right I said "Child of vision, won't you listen? Find yourself a new ambition"
I've heard it all before You're saying nothing new I thought I saw a rainbow But I guess it wasn't true And you cannot make me listen And I cannot make you hear So you find your way to heaven And I'll meet you when you're there
How can you live in this way? (Why do you think it's so strange?) You must have something to say (Tell me why should I change?) We have no reason to fight 'Cause we both know that we're right I said "Child of vision, won't you listen? Find yourself a new ambition"

Steve from Torrance, CaThis song appeared, uncredited, along with "Take the Long Way Home" (also from the "Breakfast in America" album) in the 1984 Richard Lester-directed film, "Finders Keepers". The movie starred Michael O'Keefe ("Caddychack") and Lou Gossett Jr.
Ben from Chelsea, MeThe outro to this song was my favorite part. Not a bad song, but not as good as Casual Conversations or Goodbye Stranger.
