lyrics

I've decided to be unresolved and effectively useless,
positively unsure, undoubtedly dubious,
I'm happily depressed, and I relish in the stress,
Yes I'm comfortably awkward
Econo, inefficient, intelligently absurd
I've successfully failed and attempted
to make no effort-
I quickly decelerate, and the inadequate
I'll appreciate…

They say No child left behind
But take a closer look at why I'm resigned
cuz this Act segregates and then isolates
The wealthy from the poor and the latter
don't get a dime

Kids enter school a question, marc
But taught to leave a period
Forced to suppress their creative spark
Thrown at the bottom of the pyramid
They've successfully failed
at attempting to make no effort
They educate the already educated
And the rest of you can shovel dirt

Why do we accept this prejudiced assessment?
I can't pass this test, so an idiot I must be
Classify us like a piece of meat…
Now you see why I have no ambition?
No matter how hard these kids will try
They won't have the same opportunity as me
So why try?

They say No child left behind
But take a closer look at why I'm resigned
cuz this Act segregates and then isolates
The wealthy from the poor and the latter
don't get a dime
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer
Yet the poor are fighting the war

And surely they're left behind…
And surely we're left behind…
