Education

Education

They say that school is so important,

But I didn't learn my lessons from there,

I've got all my knowledge I need from experience,

Not by some books that you call useful,

/0/

I can't say that I don't enjoy it,

It takes my mind off of many things,

All the troubles growing inside of me,

They're on hold when I'm here,

/0/

Chorus:

--

I don't care about my education,

Your life shouldn't be about some marks,

I want to know life's lessons,

Some real reasons, explanations,

But they're certainly not taught here,

/0/

Although it dulls the pain of real life,

They always seem to bring it right back up,

I live to face them when I get off,

And it brings it all back,

It brings it all back,

/0/

One wave of emotion,

Coming at me like a tsunami,

Right when I step in the house,

I can't rest my mind,

I can't rest my mind,

/0/

All the problems that I have,

I contemplate the solutions that I'll never make,

I'm too much of a coward,

Or have no control,

/0/

I don't care about my education,

Your life shouldn't be about some marks,

I want to know life's lessons,

Some real reasons, explanations,

But they're certainly not taught here,

/0/

I can't get to sleep anymore,

But I know that I have to get up early,

So I force myself to sleep,

And I'm still draped with fatigue,

There's no point,

/0/

If the lessons that are taught here are not real,

Then I don't want to listen,

I've been through enough,

To know that none of this matters,

/0/

Sure, I might be good at it,

But what good does it do me?

I never use these subjects to help me cope,

They do me no good,

/0/

I don't care about my education,

Your life shouldn't be about some marks,

I want to know life's lessons,

Some real reasons, explanations,

But they're certainly not taught here,

/0/

I need some answers,

Not some problems,

I've got enough of my own,

I don't need an essay,

That does nothing,

/0/

I need some help,

Not some drama,

I need some love,

Not some project,

That just angers me,

/0/

There is no point,

There is no reasoning,

To why we need all this busy work,

When all it does is just busy us?

I need to figure out my life,

Not be distracted by school,

/0/

I need to learn my ways of life,

Not around the school,

I need to have more faith,

Not in hopes of grades,

I need to get out of here,

And figure this out,

/0/

I don't care about my education,

Your life shouldn't be about some marks,

I want to know life's lessons,

Some real reasons, explanations,

But they're certainly not taught here,

/0/

Education comes with knowledge,

And I don't need this,

I need to learn about life,

And what it has to offer,

I need to find a lover,

Not the perfect college,

/0/

Knowledge comes from experience,

Not by books,

I don't care what you say,

I just need to go my own way,

/0/

I need to explore,

Just to know what's in store,

I need to take my path,

Who cares about my education?

When I all I need is love.

/0/

/0/

Fading:

/0/

I don't care about my education,

Your life shouldn't be about some marks,

I want to know life's lessons,

Some real reasons, explanations,

But they're certainly not taught hereā€¦
