Slipped Through The Cracks – Atrophy

At the age of 15 your life is defined, it’s measured in ounces and grams
The wisdom of ages is soon pushed away for a crystal that’s purchased in drams
No time for book learning, the street is your school, it teaches a lesson that’s real
You shun lit and science, that’s crap for your parents, the only thing real is the deal

Chorus:
Words on a page, they’re so hard to read
The will to learn, it’s not in your creed
Why should I care, I reeally can’t see
The teaching of man, they mean nothing to me

Sports is the answer that’s what you’ve been told,
it’s the only way you’ll succeed
A ball is your teacher, replaces the textbook,
it’s the only tool that you’ll need
History and math are soon pushed away by the glory bestowed by a sport
The classroom’s forgotten, their teachings outdated,
you live by the rules of the court

Repeat chorus
Solo: Skowron
Solo: Lykins

Although things aren’t perfect, they’re trying their best,
the choice is left up to you
Resist the temptation of the easy way out,
