Excuses, They Won't Get Anyone Anhywhere

November 26, 2008

I don't smoke
I don't need to
I'm not dumb

I know what I want
I have a future
Unlike these other people
I know it will get me no where
If I ever picked some up

I say "no"
But some people don't understand
They don't know they have that option
Excuses are excuses

"It makes me relaxed"
"It is my idea of fun"
Is that really all you have in life

Play a sport
Go to school
Get some friends

It's just an excuse
And substances that can destroy you
