with Substitute degrees?
or Brain-dead parents with PH.D's?
A day in the life of Murder Elementary
Straight from the schoolyard to the Penitentiary?
Counselors running around with note pads
matching student's heads with Pro Keds
Polit(E)- trick-sins talk shit in leaps and bounds
about the need for more playgrounds
while their children's minds are what’s Falling Down
No more worrying about school segregation
Now the focus is student mutilation
Trials and tribulations
Blood shed from many nations
Student refugees trapped in school like Haitians
Shotgun blast in 5th period made you scared
Wait till 6th period you just might wind up dead
From a nation that glorifies violence
Take prayer from school?
How about a moment of silence!
Separation between church and state
No wonder AmeriKKK is satiated with hate
Soldiers over seas dying to defend our flag
While school-children are being sent home in body bags
Who would have guessed that the first test
would be steps on putting on a bulletproof vest
As the faces of murderers become younger
Are we really expected to believe that age is just a number?
What kind of message are we sending to our youth
Right to Live or Right to Shoot?
