180 (who?)
Put down all of your books
Open your troubled mind
Leave the cell-like classroom
And feel the warm sunshine

Beating down from above
On your beautiful skin
Forget all you have learnt
Let your journey begin

Breathe the air on green hills
Open eyes to blue sky
They tried to hide the truth
But with no alibi

Are you just a product
Of wistful memories
Or is there still some time
To change your destiny

Tether your torrid thoughts
Silence those languid words
That pollute your young mind
Instead choose to observe

The beauty that surrounds
Nature is your mother
Wisdom is your father
Creation your lover

The world outside your door
Can be a hollow place
Dividing us through fear
Of religion and race

Why not come together
As beyond our skin
We can live forever
Through our beauty within

Move forward with one love
Your untouchable soul
For once in your life, friend
Free your mind, lose control
Please Lose Control
