Every Man For Himself - Te Oranga lyrics

Life at the tail, never heads.

The product of a prescribed
curriculum, we emerge again as
the passengers in society, but
never the drivers.

Educated to occupy all of the
bottom rungs on the social
ladder, we fill the jobs with low
pay, status and power.

Our decisions are made for us.

We are the unskilled,
unqualified, underachieving,

Under the thumb and unlikely to
break the cycle.

But change can be made.

A balancing of power.

Success in education and the
work force can be the key to the
top offices, the round tables.

Our shot at slowing the
juggernaut from the inside.

Participation at society's highest
level must be our aim.

Life at the tail, never heads.
