When college isn’t for you do you just run away and quit
Do you go to your dorm and throw a fit
Do you call that special someone?
Do you rely on your parents to help and support you?
Or do you just try and forget
Do you forget by getting drunk and going out?
Do you go on great adventures that go into the next day?
Or do you try and find love without making love
When you go to college and realize that you want to call quits
That starting after graduation didn’t really fit
Do you blame your parents who just wanted to see you make it?
Or do you blame society that pressures you to go because if you don’t you can’t make it
When you go to college and realize you need to call quits
Because college and high school are the same with all the labels and boul-shit
You are talked about and told you’re a waste of time
You are talked about and told you are a dime
But if you are a dime then society wants you to be a hoar
Society doesn’t want to make you wait till marriage
Society doesn’t want to accept your rules because the rules have been set in stone
And although the real rules that were set in stone were broken
The new rules cannot be
Wrapped in all things unbreakable
They make you break
They make your heart ache and your chest begins to burn
They make your head hurt and they make you want to run
Your eyes filled with fear because you cannot conform
You see differently so others judge
You say you don’t care but don’t we all
All locked up in misery and trying to fly
And experience life while passing standards
But it’s hard.
At the end of the day when you are sober and aware it’s hard
Those who did it I give an applause but for me not knowing
Is just failing it all
When a plan is made then everything is alright
But when confusion hits then disaster will strike
It strikes in your family when you run away to grow up on your own
You avoid the elephant but it always seems to come up
Once upon a time a daddy’s girl but now you’re no ones girl
You know your worth and wish others would realize theirs but the truth is scary
Especially when it’s in every corner staring at you
Waiting to be accepted
Never to be denied
