It's our policy, no child left behind
You can all go back, back to the end of the line
We're molding young minds to our standardized kind
The perfect design to conform and align
From the Common Core to the common corporations
Who needs art? We've got essays and equations
Who needs music? Just forget your aspirations
We're setting the foundation for your standardized vocation
We teach history how we want it to be remembered
Doesn't matter if it's accurate if it fits our agenda
Don't even think about reciting any prayer or scripture
One nation under God, as long as He's out of the picture
Multiple choice, just pick A, B, or C
Your answer determines your future, that we can guarantee
Time's up, books closed, pencils down
School's out, the future is now
(feel free to use any, all, or none of these lyrics with the new "Quality Control" remix by humunkulus and iamemma. i wrote these lyrics at 2am this morning, so they're probably a little random. i haven't had enough sleep to determine if they're any good or convince myself not to post them. however, i have had enough sleep to at least not attempt rapping & recording them myself, ha ha)
What would you do in the dark?No one can see, there's no need to hideWhat would you do in the dark?Safe from the light, no more bright eyes can find you
Would you find the courage to reach out for her hand?Pull her close and kiss her for the first time like a manWould she finally be comfortable in her skinIf the dark could hide all her imperfections
Would you stand on a stage?And finally stop being afraid?Would you stand tall and sing your heart out?How about now?
What would you do in the dark?What could you say in the dark?Who would you...
What would you do in the dark that you wouldn't have the courage to do in the light?
I'm writing a song and looking for inspiration for the extra verses! Please upload your responses as a record so that I can resource them if I'm able to fit them into the song lyrics! Thanks <3
Dear Millie, I have a gift for youSomething my mama gave me a long time ago, so youso one day you'd have it tooSomething to cherish, something only we know
Just a little family secretI'll tell you if you'll keep itSomething magic we can doSomething special, me and you
We can wear our memoriesOn our facesSpotted cheeks forAll the placesWe've been togetherWe'll keep them foreverFreckled memories
