lyrics

I don’t know what to think
It all goes in the blink of an eye
I have no idea where those years went

Can’t remember my first day
All those constellations on my face
I was never one for popularity

But you soon learn that
History books and literature
Weren’t even half of what you needed to know
It’s a pity they never told me so

And the real test isn’t
Sitting at a desk with a pen and paper
Take note of this for later:

My graduation
A funeral for my formal edification
And the greatest lessons that you learn
Are from the mistakes you make on your own
Make sure these words are said
Real education’s undead

Seems just like yesterday
In a gown at the centre of a stage
A Masters degree is enough for me

But coming back to my home town
And the challenges that I’m facing now
Can’t help but think there’s something wrong with me

And then I realised that
Calculus and physics
Weren’t even half of what I needed to know
It’s a pity they never told me so

And the real test isn’t
Monitored by a silent invigilator
Swap notes on this for later

My graduation
A funeral for my formal edification
And the greatest lessons that you learn
Are from the mistakes you make on your own
Make sure these words are read
Real education’s undead

But you’ll soon learn that
Every lecture from the classroom
Wasn’t even a bite of what you needed to know
It’s a pity they never told me so

And the real test is
Stepping out your door once you’ve earned that piece of paper
And you’re the only taker

My graduation
A funeral for my formal edification
And the greatest lessons that you learn
Are from the mistakes you make on your own
Make sure these words are said
Real education’s undead

My graduation
A funeral for my formal edification
And the greatest lessons that you learn
Are from the mistakes you make on your own
Make sure these words are said
Real education’s undead
Real education’s undead
Real education’s undead
