Lyrics

Back in school you ever get busted for trying to walk
and have some administrator tell you
Son, you can shirk your obligations, and try to be different from you peers
But responsibility for your future is

Gonna find you,
Gonna find you,
Gonna find you,
Gonna find you

Well I saw this kid get beaten down because he was out of luck
In the lottery of acceptance in the school of growing up
Saw a bunch of convicts doing time inside a cage
Got locked in factories within the school of paid wage

Gonna find you,
Gonna find you,
Gonna find you,
Gonna find you

Saw this boy so strung out that his body sweats and shakes
From his field education in the school of cheap escapes
Got told the school of human thinking teaches only truth
And one of its educations is gonna find you

Gonna find you,
Gonna find you,
Gonna find you,
Gonna find you

Saw a civilization where grabbing onto wealth
Was the only guarantee of freedom peace and health
Dollar sign value system upheld as the truth
And if you can't find a place its gonna find you

Saw the paranoid response to all of the examples
Of the ones that don't fit in this way of living getting trampled
Success is obedience to a structured way of life
You can't ignore the structure because were all within its sight

Gonna find you,
Gonna find you,
Gonna find you,
Gonna find you
