I wake up in the morning
and as I blink my eyes
I know the day will be the same
and the question will arise
so what's the fucking answer?
I don't know what to say
I'm only 18 years old
my time passes day to day
my future lies before me
but I'm asked to decide now
what I'm gonna make of it
what, when, where, why and how
people preaching left and right
from morning until night
just leave me so confused
this shouldn't be such a fight.
and I hear them
you know I hear them
but it passes through my ears
and I'm stuck with no reply
and I see them
you know I see them
but I can't bring myself to care
can't bring myself to try

Sacrifice...better think twice

well 9 times out of 10
the poor kid just won't get in
and he'll be left with no future
or have to do it all again
so much money on the line
he'll be working overtime
or be faced with the decision
to stand in unemployment lines
and nobody's really ready
to be tossed from this to that
listen to the numbers passing
1 to 10 on the mat
the pressure keeps on building
I don't see no end in sight
this is the fucking choice
that could make or break my life
and I hear them
you know I hear them
but it passes through my ears
and I'm stuck with no reply
and I see them
you know I see them
but I can't bring myself to care
can't bring myself to try
