They say those who can't do, teach
But those who can teach should
For it is not enough to just read out loud 
Use this stage to do some good 
Yet we are mostly treated to glorified human textbooks 
Making school the same place they hated
The love and the passion mostly lost 
The magic of the lessons surely ill fated
As the world spins out of control 
Weather turning pages on human history
The need for bright young minds rises
Invent ways to fix our ecology 
Education is for the privileged 
And school is for their growing minds
But what is the point of a ship without a compass 
Just victims of the education decline
