You pack up your sons & daughters for the day,
Like lambs to the slaughter you send them on their way,
They blindly follow & they all look the same,
Soon they'll all think the same way too as they're trained to follow rules.

You better do what they say - follow orders and obey,
Stand in line follow the crowd dont be yourself you're not allowed,
Read our books follow our rules & don't question all you're taught in school,
Cos we know what's best for everyone,
Head down eyes to the ground don't make a sound.

An apathetic ear tunes out the childrens cries,
They don't catch your eye and they'll never look twice,
Indignant only to their silent servitude,
They've forgotten why they came and lost any hope for change years ago.

Don't make a sound, maybe they won't notice you,
Still can't forget how they could be so cruel,
Through the eyes of a child where nothing seemed worthwhile,
I saw the shape of things to come.
