From conception we’re each assigned a destiny.
From birth we’re each assigned a name.
From age One we’re taught who to be.
Yet from whatever comes, only we’re to blame.
From grade One, we're told how to think.
Learning isn't a premise, testing is simply the way.
As pupils, you'll be penalized for an unwelcome blink.
Welcome to the system, it's the governments’ say.
Institutionalization is now a lone attribute.
Be it School, Jail, or Bureaucracy as a whole.
Your being has a price, all else is mute.
Both in life, and in death money is the goal.
From the start of our lives, We’re driven by greed.
From the start of our lives we’re not breed to succeed.
