it's been a good run

a short break from hell

but soon it must end

as the supplies lists are sent

and schedules are handed out

we watch the world burn

our hearts heavy, without a doubt

tests, finals, and even the few bastard teachers

they all chase us mercilessly

as the Graduated watch from the bleachers

soon the Silence will end

replaced with the screams of your peers

and it will continue on

torturing you

for many years and years

so rejoice,

for our Education is returning!

forget sleep, forget to eat

school is not about learning
