  • ""Good evening, kids. Take your seats. Open up your Bibles
    I’m gonna chastise a rival so keep your eyes wide open
    The young soul lost control, made her first faul
    This is my duty to set the bounds

    She grabbed my hand, took me in, placed me in front of a class
    She gave a hint I was the clou of her mass
    I’m in the middle of her Holy of Holies, I have no worries!
    I saw dusty icons on the walls
    I saw needles and stones
    So she put a paper bag on my head
    She pointed finger at me, and then she said:

    Dear Lord, forgive me as I’m slapping this sinful child
    By your hand I’m led so I will show what is wrong and what is right
    Choose your label cuz I’m mercy, merciful
    Put your knuckles on the table, meet my friend Ferule
    Who’ll punish you!

    When their prejudice let us down
    We stand firmly on our ground
    Don’t let their school make a fool of you
    Because the teachers may be fools too

    Laws chalked on a blackboard
    Can’t be erased until it gets boring
    The lady spoke and then she choked
    On the convictions oh so alluring
    She made a pause in her verbal overdose
    My paper bag slipped down on the floor
    I took a look around, there was no sanctuary
    Desks empty, the school was all imaginary

    Teacher, teacher! Self-proclaimed preacher
    Under the flag of welfare your lectures start to blare!
    We need no soap shoved down our throats
    So keep your monologues unrated and remote
    I am a bad example of order
    This life is not a prison and you are not a warden
    Please, teacher teacher! Leave us alone
    As we accept life lessons from no one

    Your idols scream to me throwing shame on my face
    As I turn away from infamy and disgrace
    I smile to you, cuz I want you to see
    How I break the rules in front of your trinity
