Dead Kennedys - Life Sentence lyrics

You used to be 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 your senior year
All you care about is your career

It's your 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 your life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence

The walls are closing in
You stayed too long in school

I'd rather stay a child
And keep my self-respect
If being an adult
Means being like you

Are you really 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 it'll snap your neck

You say you'll break out
But you never do
You're just another ant in the hill

It's your life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence

Life sentence
Life sentence
Life sentence
