Summer Vacation

In these dreams I'm having
It's still 2011
I'm in high school again
Though now life don't seem much different

I go to school 5 days a week, every week
Except instead of school it's now my job it seems
Go to work to a boss who's screaming
He makes me feel I'm a shit human being

I guess I just wanted to be
The only one in charge of me
But the older I get, the more that I see
There's no such thing as completely free

Instead of tests now, I pay rent and
Homework means car payments
I never would have guessed I'd be so jaded
But no one ever said there'd be no summer vacation

Well see, we do get electives
But they're just ineffective
In comparison to core classes
Which one goes by the fastest?

I'm studying independently, it's only me
I just cannot focus adequately
I must learn how to quickly
Before my life sticks it to me

I thought I could do this alone
But now that I'm all on my own
My thoughts are rushing in like a cyclone
I need someone to be my coach

Instead of tests now, I pay rent and
Homework means car payments
I never would have guessed I'd be so jaded
But no one ever said there'd be no summer vacation
