STUPID
I'm wondering how I got in this class
Kid thinks one plus one equals eleven
To think he's older than me!
I'm nineteen

LAZY
Getting my GED
At least I'm getting somewhere
Broke Down
Dropped out of High School

GOOD FOR NOTHING
Can't find a job
I always lie on my applications
Never had a job I didn't quit
Probably doesn't look good

MENTALLY UNSTABLE
Sit in my room
Smoke and listen to music
Get an allowance at the end of the week for that
Thank God for my parents
Spend my money on booze
And sit around thinking
How I got in this class
