Spoken Word + Lyrics: ‘EDUCATION’ By @RohunBatra

‘Edu­ca­tion’ by Rohun Batra (Pro­duced by ShoX­star)

Can you remem­ber who you were before the world told you who you should be,
A clas­sic case of bul­ly­ing, per­man­ently,
I mean, remem­ber when you got told off for being too loud,
Just to con­form your beha­viour and make ’em all proud
We go in through the doors of schools being ourselves,
Just to be taught these so called man­ners that func­tion in the world,
To make us obed­i­ent, and nev­er ques­tion the sys­tem,
Feed us lies, in the media we listen
We exit edu­ca­tion with the same atti­tude and think­ing,
If it was­n’t for rebel­li­ous times, we’d have coer­cive blink­ing,
Free­dom is in the pro­cess of extinc­tion … why ?
Because we listen in an instant,
How can paper determ­ine your intel­li­gence,
Regur­git­at­ing the inform­a­tion they want you to know,
So they can make money and put you on a few award shows,
Then you just for­get what you remembered, is that really how this world grows?
Gates, Bran­son, a few among the many,
Failed school and people thought their minds were blunt as pen­nies,
But look at them now, got more money than you can ima­gine,
Money isn’t everything, but look at what they could fathom
Think to your­self, define intel­li­gence,
Does it come from remem­ber­ing a num­ber of words,
Or does it come from life skills, like hunt­ing to pre­serve,
Think to your­self and you will get what you deserve,
Learn without the use of med­ic­a­tion and look to the herbs,
Kerb your mind from being held down,
Release, embrace, and keep those thoughts loud,
Oth­ers will fear you when you’re dif­fer­ent from the crowd
I think its time for me to say peace and sign out
Yeah …
Learn­ing is good, but the edu­ca­tion sys­tem is bad,
Its unequal; you can­’t judge a fish’s intel­li­gence by telling it to climb a tree,
We’re all dif­fer­ent indi­vidu­als,
THINK FOR YOUR­SELF
The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
