Speculate on your own
people don't listen, it's my frustration.
I lend my ear to all their shit,
then I give the response that seems to fit.
But sometimes I give the response that won't,
and people won't listen cause their parents don't.
Programmed minds and confused faces,
I just wish I could trade places,
to show them what it's like to think
about the things that make them tick.
