Class, repeat after me...
Oh Christopher Columbus where would I be?
If you had never crossed the sea?
If you had never thought the world a ball
If you had never cared to sail at all

Lies from day one
school has only begun
the sun risen this morn
I'm already feeling torn
apart, and cheated
with this truthless truth.
Everyone is positioned to eat
a little pawn so weak
whose teeth are still in growth
can't bite, can't chew, and they knew
for it's easier to attack a cub alone
than with the mother who protects till death
lure him in some, trap him in a cell
cut the fur, make him unwell
He'll be alone, but he'll put a fight
worth 100 men
though he's wounded and sore
and he'll lose in the end
no one can save him
It's too late now
anyhow.

that song about columbus....I learned it in 3rd grade and it's playing in my head now -_-
history is a lie, and school teaches those lies.

I meant the topic because I'm challenging the American school system
