Numbers don’t lie, but people do,

What do you sacrifice to see another’s dream come true,

How do you find joy in a society where your labor only benefits a few,

Contribute to society, if you don't, shame on you,

Train school children so that one day they can join the crew,

Submit to your master wether your collar is white or blue,

Be grateful! Your ancestors didn’t even have a pot for stew,

Neglect whatever it means to be you,

It’ll be over when you’re 65, youll think “oh, how time has flew”

Until then, shut up because Rent, Electricity and Student Loans are due!
