Fall In Line

I was young once
I acted all cool
I too played the fool
I scraped by in school
 
I was stupid and young
Shaped by what I see
Not thinking what could be
My influences shaped me
 
But I grew up
I got smarter with time
I made the world mine
I thought all would be fine
 
I thought I would change the world
But everyone lied
So I silently cried
As my childhood died
 
The world fears change
Like a bee near your head
Or a snake in your bed
Or ending up dead.
 
So now I’m not sure what to do
Put the system to test?
Would that be best?
Or fall in line like the rest?
