I never understood why college was so expensive
Were all strangers and the teachers are tad offensive
I’m a loner practically; I’ve never felt less cared for
Is it so much cause all the money is going to that useless war?
Is that fair? I’ve busted my ass trying to achieve greater heights
For what? I can’t even afford to turn on the lights
In high school, college was an exciting idea
But when I got that first bill I screamed Ave Maria
I would ask the government for assistance
But it’s like there an invisible existence
I loved college however, the freedom was intense
I felt so smart like no matter what, I made sense
I wish living in America was easier on my wallet
But since high school I’ve fallen into a horrible debt
How do you expect the new generation to achieve
If all we do is financially grieve?
