Liberation by Kate Wolf and Lionel Kilberg

We need to learn so much to know how much we didn't need to know
We need to learn the words to say we didn't have to know it all
We have to probe and ask around to find that which will bring us pain
We then have to investigate to make sure that we're heard again

Can't accept the simple joys without the doubt that they exist
Can't accept the touch of lips without the fear that we've been kissed
And we thought of what means ensures that we'll be depressed
We must remove its residue for fear we'll be possessed

We need to learn so much to know how much we didn't need to know
We need to learn the words to say we didn't have to know it all
Then we find that we're alone and wonder at the why and how
And so we learn that to unlearn may help us just a little now

Then we find that we're alone and wonder at the why and how
And so we learn that to unlearn may help us just a little bit now
