    Supertramp knew before Pink Flyod ever did

    "School"
    I can see you in the morning when you go to school
    Don't forget your books, you know you've got to learn the golden rule,
    Teacher tells you stop your play and get on with your work
    And be like Johnnie - too-good, well don't you know he never shirks
    - he's coming along!

    After School is over you're playing in the park
    Don't be out too late, don't let it get too dark
    They tell you not to hang around and learn what life's about
    And grow up just like them - won't let you work it out
    - and you're full of doubt

    Don't do this and don't do that
    What are they trying to do?- Make a good boy of you
    Do they know where it's at?
    Don't criticize, they're old and wise
    Do as they tell you to
    Don't want the devil to
    Come and put out your eyes

    Maybe I'm mistaken expecting you to fight
    Or maybe I'm just crazy, I don't know wrong from right
    But while I am still living, I've just got this to say
    It's always up to you if you want to be that
    want to see that
    want to see that way
    - you're coming along!



    I think Supertramp's third album Crime of the Century, has alot of 'inside' wisdom involved.

    How about the lyrics to Bloody Well Right !!





    "Bloody Well Right"
    So you think your schooling's phoney
    I guess it's hard not to agree
    You say it all depends on money
    And who is in your family tree
    Right, you're bloody well right
    you know you got a right to say
    Right, you're bloody well right
    you know you got a right to say
    Ha-ha you're bloody well right
    you know you're right to say
    Yeah-yeah you're bloody well right
    you know you're right to say
    Me, I don't care anyway!
    Write your problems down in detail
    Take them to a higher place
    You've had your cry - no, I should say wail
    In the meantime hush your face
    Right, quite right, you're bloody well right...



    And there is the Asylum track

    'I told them look I said, I am not the way you are thinking.
    Please don't arrange to have me sent to no Asylum.
    I am just as sane as anyone !'

    The whole album is full of it .. and not the perferbeeal 'it'

    Supertramp had some insight on chit !!
    Their Crime of the Century album was not their only one either.
    Their next album was titled...Crisis? What Crisis?

    It is a good day when common sense and justice do prevail.

    'Fool's Overture', from the 'Even In The Quietest Moments' album was not anything like what we may think thou.
    Rodger Hodgens said it was all just a bunch of gibberish that took a few years to compose

    I remember as a kid about 15 or 16 years old, when Supertramp's 'Even in the Quietest Moments' album was released.
    I was first in line at my local Radio Shack to purchase it. I was only one in line ... lol
    It was a small town

    When I saw the album cover with that Grand Piano standing in the wilderness and covered in snow, it brought an ominous feeling into me. It was like a peek into the future.

    I got home and played the album.... wow.... there is no feeling that can be described.

    Then the last song on the album (side 2) was Fool's Overture
    It will knock you around, that track will.
