Keep an Open Mind or Else

Oh come along now
It's not quite like you say
With my last breath
I'll fight for your right to disagree

But I don't believe
It's as simple as you say
No I don't believe
In your arguing myself

Now well I know you should never
Think that you know everything
You should never, oh never
Think that you know everything

An open mind
Oh why don't you keep?
It's the true side
Of the civilized

Argue forever
But don't you ever rest
I don't believe
In any such arguments as these

They might win the game
But they never will with me
For I make mine up
As I go along

You should always try to see
Another person's point of view
You should never, oh never
Think that you know everything

Because you will find
There are mysteries
Too deep to be explained
With the brain

Oh shut your trap
Or I'll shut it up for you
I don't believe in facts
No I just believe in me

Argue, I don't care
Would you like your face smashed in?
Say anything
I will be never be convinced

You should always try to see
Another person's point of view
You should never, oh never
Think that you know everything

An open mind
Oh why don't you keep?
It's the true side
Of the civilized

If you ever put your ideas
Into practice in any place
To be sure I'll be the first one
To be calling the police

Malcolm Eden explicaba así el significado de la canción:This was a single. It’s a bit more lively than the other songs on the album. The subject of the song is that a superficially tolerant, liberal attitude often turns into an intolerant one when pressed. This attitude has become quite prevalent today, in the form of political correctness”.

  2. La frase es buena, lo políticamente correcto es la inquisición de los nuevos tiempos.
