Are you optimistic
'Bout the way things are going?
No, I nver ever think of it at all

Don't you ever worry
When you see what's going down?
No, I try to mind my business
That is no business at all

When it's time to function
As a feeling human being
Will your Bachelor of Arts help you get by?

I hope to study further
A few more years or so
I also hope to keep a steady high

Will you try to change things
Use the power that you have
The power of a million new ideas?

What is this power you speak of
And this need for things to change?
I always thought that everything was fine

Don't you feel repression
Just closing in around?
No, the campus here is very, very free

Does it make you angry
The way war is dragging on?
Well, I hope the President
Knows what he's into, I don't know

Don't you ever see the starvation
In the city where you live
All the needless hunger
All the needless pain?

I haven't been there lately
The country is so fine
But my neighbors don't seem hungry
'Cause they haven't got the time

Thank you for the talk, you know
You really eased my mind
I was troubled by the shapes
Of things to come

Well, if you had my outlook
Your feelings would be numb
You'd always think that everything was fine

Robert Lamm
