lyrics

This is the last day of school
We've learned what we need to
Now we can work for you
Through your ever changing moods

You're tearing up the golden rule
You've shown us no loyalty
So we won't trust you
We'll take the job but we won't pledge our lives to you

I'm tearing out of here at five
My chance to get drunk and dream of a brand new life
the trouble is that the expectation's too high

So laugh if you want to
I need to get this monkey off of my back now
I'm gonna party somewhere in this town

This is the last day of youth
All hopes and all dreams have officially not come true
We'll fight each other for the chance to survive and make do

So laugh if you want to
I need to get this monkey off of my back now
I'm gonna party somewhere in this town

Crowds spill through streets now
We'll make a scene now
It's your way to build us up then let us down

Beg, burgle, borrow
The trends you follow
You were made to pick them up then put them down

This is the last day of school
We've learned what we need to
Now we can work for you
Through your ever changing moods

If this were the last day on earth
I'd be with my sweet heart down by the open hearth
I wouldn't take calls from despots or grovel for twerps

So laugh if you want to
It makes no difference now the meteors rain down
I'm gonna party somewhere in this town
