Education (Intro5pect)

We are born into the world With a blank slate for a mind Capacity for learning, And tightly closed up eyes The learning comes so quick That we have no time to choose Our own set of standards And our own set of rules So we learn, and we learn young No one thinks you're hard If you turn and run We learn, and we learn young No one dismiss you When they're staring down your gun [Chorus] So all along the city streets I'm scared to walk alone In the dirty alleyways, I'm scared to walk alone And I admit I've never lived The life that you must know But violence towards innocents Won't fix your broken homes (you reap the seeds you sow) We determine what we think Based on what we're shown A lack of education leaves the world unkown So all we have to go on is the world that we see A world based on violence And a world based on greed So we learn, and we learn young No one thinks you're hard If you turn and run We learn, and we learn young No one dismiss you When they're staring down your gun [Chorus]
