High School Pretense

Write an epic of who you are Tell me how you're feeling Play it through this music phase Just a phase Just a hobby Better you have to be better It's all so superficial What does it matter When it's all gonna go away in the end It's gonna graduate and They'll give it to you Like a diploma You can hang it on your wall Second best Because there's always someone better. Live it like your life Think of nothing else but then it goes away and really you've accomplished nothing but a couple of petty memories and a useless outdated skill.
