Used me a partner in crime
Now you say you ain't got the time
Gotta get serious, gotta plan
Gotta pass those entrance exams
Oh my God, it's senior year
All you care about is your career

It's a life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence

You're squelching your emotions
All you talk about is old times
You don't do what you want to
But you do the same thing everyday
No sense of humor, but such good manners
Now you're an adult, you're boring

It's a life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
Aaa aaa aaa aaa
Are the walls closing in?
You stay aye aye aye ayed
(Aye aye aye aye )
Too long in school

I'd rather, stay a child
And keep, my self-respect
If being, an adult
Means being like you
Aaa, aaa, aaa, aaa, aaa
Aaa, aaa, aaa, aaa, aaa
You, you, you
(You, you, you)
(You, you, you)
(You, you, you)
Are you really you?
No

You're a chained up dog fenced in a yard
Don't see much you can't go far
Pace and froth you're getting sick
Run too fast and I'll snap your neck
Say you'll break out, you never do
You're just another ant in the hill

It's a life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
(Life sentence)
Life sentence
