I don’t think I’ll ever miss these monotone feelings

Wake up, go to school— when am I leaving?

I just want to be creative 

This homework is really just too basic.

 

I made these thoughts a couple too many times

What should I do with my life? I can’t make up my mind

I can’t write, speak, teach, or preach—what am I supposed to do?

I don’t want to be unmotivated, I just can’t find myself in school

Please just teach me creativity

I take personality tests to find the real me

I feel like I spend too much of my life singing in the wrong key, and I don’t want to be

 

I don’t think I’ll ever miss these monotone feelings

Wake up, go to school—when am I leaving? 

I just want to be creative

Man, this homework is just too basic

I don’t think I’ll ever miss these monotone feelings

Wake up, go to school— when am I leaving?

I just want to be creative

This homework is really just too basic

It might have been helpful to learn the things I ought to know

Like what do I want to do with my life, what college will be my home

I don’t know, but I know what led to the fall of Rome.

I don’t know, but I know how to hide my phone

I don’t know, but I know a lot of random things

I wish I did, but I don’t know what I’ll do when I’m all my own

 

I don’t think I’ll ever miss these monotone feelings

Wake up, go to school— when am I leaving? 

I just want to be creative

Man this homework is just too basic

I don’t think I’ll ever miss these monotone feelings

Wake up, go to school—when am I leaving?

I just want to be creative

This homework is really just too basic
