Another step you try to take
another hopeless dreary fate
anoter road of broken hope
of wasted dollars and wasted dreams.
You try your best in school for years
you take the tests, you watch your peers
but now its time to move on up
but it's too bad that you are stuck.
Stuck in the middle, not below the line
to the point where on paper, your family looks fine
two parents, two jobs, what could be wrong?
"you can pay $60,000 a year in tuition, can't you mom?"
But the "no" doesn't come like a slap in the face
you know, its expected, in your middle-class place
too much money for aid but too little to pay
for the school of your dreams
Stuck in the middle, here we are again
4 years and 10,000 for a quarter million a pop
now thats quite a big number you've got
Stuck in the middle, it's too much to pay
Stuck in the middle, when we will get our day
Stuck in the middle, it's time for a change
the system of education needs to be rearanged.
