At times I'm pacing, half the time I'm racing,
Making it to due dates, scribbling bubbles to tests all day long,
Another presentation tomorrow Am I ready? Hell no
In one ear out the other, I'm not listening,
Just buying in enough to pass the quiz, tomorrow it'll all be history again.
Mommy, Mommy, I'm getting sick
All this stress is at me again!
I'm going to pop some pills, Hope they don't kill me tonight,
Tomorrow is a day I just can't miss.
I'll choke my self with papers,
Whatever it is, It's never good enough.
So much homework I should be home-schooled,
More money in my pocket, less judgement in my days
Hello, Hello!
The earth is spinning off and I'm about to miss it,
All my works in all my life, people lining up to diss it,
At the top of my game, the tip is so slippery,
One mess up and I'm plummeting.
Their so picky, will I ever make it to see those pillars?
Ding, Ding
They're making and breaking me,
They're so old they knew Churchill in the sandbox back home,
Who are they to tell me what I can do and where I can go?
They don't even have to pick out their clothing!
Financial crisis in a world of greed,
No wonder the world hates us,
The news is frightening, I admit,
I'm scared s*** less.
The streets are so hard and cold
I'm just trying to miss them
as I leap from this building,
Congrats Class 12,
You made it far but was it worth it?
I think no,
No room to create, just separate.
I'm no good for you, you're no good for him
Where's the love? In the graves we're digging for ourselves,
Late in the nights, neck high in books,
Was it all worth it?
Those glory old School days.

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
