They tell us to take challenges
that we must struggle to move on
so we let them tell us what to do
and they control us, we’re just pawns

They want us to take challenges
but we still must be the best
to struggle in those diverse classes
but to never ever fail a test

They expect us to take challenges
but failing can change fate
no sports, no college admittance
no forgiveness for our mistakes

They need us to take challenges,
‘cause if we don’t, they lose
the system falls if we stand up
and take life as we choose.
