Lyrics of the song Am I very wrong ? (1969)

(Peter Gabriel, Tony Banks)
Am I very wrong
To hide behind the glare from an open minded stare
Am I very wrong
To wander in the fear of a never ending lie
Am I very wrong
To try to close my ears to the sound they play so loud
Am I very wrong
The happiness machine is trying hard to sing my song
Today's your birthday friend, everything all right
Let us our greetings to you send
Happy friend, everything all right
We hope your life will never end
Am I very wrong
To want to steal a pin then I'll check that I have skin
Am I very wrong
To want to leave my friends and the curse of the happiness machine
Today's your birthday friend, everything all right
Let us our greetings to you send
Happy friend, everything all right
We hope your life will never end
They say, we hope your life will never end
They say never end, never end, never end, never end, never end
They say never end - no
They say never end, never end...
