SCHOOL

School they said would set me up for life
But that only taught me how to die
Church they said would be my path to truth
But that only taught me how to lie
They read me out a book of rules
But that only taught me who to fight
And the more they told me I was wrong
The more they taught me I was right

They pushed me back with adult words
Though I gave them not a single yard
For I was young and hard to hold
And they were old and held too hard
But though I fought those teachers then
I cannot give them all the blame
For I could tell them not my path
For I knew its way but not its name

But life came easy in those years
As easy as the daylight came
To shed some light upon my fears
And shed some tears just the same
But broken hearts and broken bones
Are subject each to nature’s laws
Thou shalt not win with pretty girls
Thou shalt not run down corridors

And how in break-time everyday
My tender heart swung to and fro
Between my simple dreams of love
And smiles that smiled and said no
But lives and loves all pass away
Just time enough to say hello
Just time enough to hold your hand
And look, it’s already time to go
