A Better Way

Around the back of the building

There’s a group of teens getting high

There’s got to be a better way

To escape

In the parking lot

There’s two strangers making love

There’s got to be a better way

To release

Hiding in the library

There’s a student killing himself with his studies

There’s got to be a better way

To succeed

Sitting at the back of the classroom

There’s a girl hiding under a hood

There’s got to be a better way

To live

Somewhere in your neighborhood

There’s a school with screwed up kids

There’s got to be a better way

To grow up
