While I think what Lennon did with "I am the Walrus" is amazing (making gibberish sound so effectively ominous), I 've mostly grown tired of the Lennon word game songs like "Love", "Give Peace a Chance" and "All You Need is Love". "Mind Games" however doesn't appear to be word play, more an attempt to communicate a legitimate thought, but it seems I'm too thick to grasp it. Can anyone tell me what this booger is about? If you know ... Great. If you're theorizing that should be fun too. MIND GAMES We're playing those mind games together Pushing barriers planting seeds Playing the mind guerrilla Chanting the mantra, peace on earth We all been playing those mind games forever Some kinda druid dude lifting the veil Doing the mind guerrilla Some call it magic, the search for the grail Love is the answer And you know that for sure Love is a flower You gotta let it, you gotta let it grow So keep on playing those mind games together Faith in the future, outta the now You just can't beat on those mind guerrillas Absolute elsewhere in the stones of your mind Yeah we're playing those mind games forever Projecting our image in space and in time Yes is the answer And you know that for sure Yes is surrender You gotta let it, you gotta let it go So keep on playing those mind games together Doing the ritual dance in the sun Millions of mind guerillas Putting their soul power to the karmic wheel Keep on playing those mind games forever Raising the spirit of peace and love. Love I want you to make love, not war I know you've heard it before.
