lyrics

Though your back is broken
by the hour sell your soul
And if school taught us anything
it taught us to aim low
Your feat lie in ruin
by the space your forced to fill
And if you had your way
that list would have a lot less left to kill

Though your free time is stolen
by the statue you've become
You'll try your best to buy it
what sinful things be done
Well still you're over stressed
and you know you're sleep deprived
Quit your damn complaining
cause' you've got to work until you die

Well I know that I don't perform the way you ask me to
Well I know that if I don't shine, well neither do you

I'm so tired though I will not sleep
cause' there are voices dragging us into the deep
With their pretty little lullabies pressed against our lips
They drag us to the guillotine while counting in our chips

Well I know that I don't perform the way you ask me to
Well I know that if I don't shine, well neither do you

And though our backs are broken
You'll never take away the soul
You didn't teach me anything
I didn't already know
You can keep those promises
your trying to shove down our throats
All that I have, I got own my own

Well I know that I don't perform the way you ask me to
Well I know that if I don't shine, well neither do you
