The system

I’ve never been good enough in class
Never good enough to pass
Education system never good enough to last
Everything seems to go so fast

I'm uninspired
Always tired
Life always threatens to cast fire
I’m down to the last wire

Grew up walking these streets
Drug needles under my feet
I constantly resist defeat
Never feeling complete

Everything I say gets shot down
Original thoughts can never hit ground
Here we go round and round
Will what I say ever be found

I go to school
Try to follow the rules
Get sucked up into whirlpools
Who even are these fools

It's getting hard to breathe
I'm down on my knees
Letting out my pleads
Tears roll down my face at high speeds

You don't know my life
You don't understand my fight
Getting hard to see the light
I no longer know what's right
