for all that I have learned for all I have discovered for all my knowing glances the counsel I’ve imparted I’m still a babe in the woods refusing to see this place is a forest of fools
for all my awareness for all my knowability for all my good intentions and my advanced philosophy I’m still a babe in the woods refusing to see this place is a forest of fools
Cinderella took a chance Snow White used her influence Red Riding Hood knew what to wear and Goldilocks she dared to dare but in the end they’re all just babes in the woods living happy ever after in this forest of fools
thought honestly was noble thought truth was my friend thought I’d fend off the Big Bad Wolf never thought I’d be misled oh I’m just a babe in the woods refusing to see this forest of fools...
where is my voice (swallowed by fear) so much the better to hear you with my dear misrepresented and misunderstood by wolves in sheeps’ clothing
so what is the moral of these tales so tall does anybody really care who’s the fairest of them all I remain a babe in the woods stumbling through this place, this forest of fools
