They say listen to this
They say read this
What’s the point?
They say write this down
Why bother? It’ll never help me in real life.
They say be on time.
What’s it matter?
They say turn things in.
I don’t care.
They say get a job
If I have to, but you better pay me real well.
They say better show up to work
They say learn your lesson this time
They say show respect
I don’t wanna. If you’re going to treat me like that then I quit.
They say don’t give up, it’s a lesson
Well, I didn’t learn anything.
They say you have to look deeper
I don’t even know where to begin
They say maybe you should have tried harder
You just don’t understand
They say you get wiser as you get older
There’s more experience in those years
There’s failures and there’s lessons
Maybe they just want to save you some tears
Each generation is different
They will never be raised the same
It’s not a misunderstanding
It’s learning to play a new game
