Imagination V. Knowledge

Albert Eintsten puts it in the best possible way:

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited

to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire

world, and all there ever will be to know and understand."

Imaginatio will forever be my freedom

Imagination will forever be my song

Imaginatio will force upon me peace

Imagination is how every desolate place becomes home

Imagination is the substance of things hoped for

The evidence of things not seen

Imaginatio being the where-with-all to find peace

In a place that only makes sense in daydreams

Knowledge makes a way

Imagination makes it okay

The basis of knowledge is to apply

The basis of imagination is to deny

Deny the mental state

Deny the need to need

Imagination causes everything to be okay

Imagination says, "I'm fine." indeed

In a world that's backwards

Where right is wrong

The necessities become wants

And the lyrics no longer make the song

I'll take imagination over knowledge

I'll prove my ability to be 

Then everyone will understand

Imagination is superior to knowledge you see

Knowledge knows a tomato is technically a fruit

Imagination makes a way to put it into a fruit salad
