Originally released as track 1 of 4 on the "Feral" CDEP in 2007.


we took turns around the room
exchanging wisdom faking gratitude
when everyone got quiet and looked at you
"it's never too late to drop out of school"
you were just trying to be witty
but it really struck a chord with me
this whole process has worn me down
ground me up and spit me out
every miserable ugly day
everytime i played and lost their games
without these i don't know who i'd be
it's better to be angry than complacent
it gives us an excuse sometimes to get wasted
as long as we're aware and never satisfied
we might keep our lives form slipping by
the future still scares the shit out of me
i see scores of collections agencies
and i've got this funny feeling that no degree
can save me from the forty hour week
today a dreadful year came to a close
and i've only got one more to go
as awful as i know that time will be
fuck it 'cause for three months i am free
i second guess myself
think i've done nothing right
think i'd be happer with
another kind of life
but i know i've got to think
i know i've got to set
a plan into action
but i can't yet
