Against The Current – Running With The Wild Things lyrics
Oo they don't hear us
Read us bedtime stories from their textbooks
Oo try to rein us in
Blind to our intelligence

Standardization of the masses
Give us a number fail or pass us
Education, manipulation
Decide our fate but never ask us

We're about to boil over
You can't keep us down forever

We got too big for the cage, you locked us up in
Let's mark this down as the day, that we started something
So open the gate, open the gate cause when we
Finally escape, finally escape we'll be
Tearing through the streets
Running with the wild things

Hey why you waiting
Quit carving notches to count the days cause
They're losing power
See em growing weaker by the hour

We're about to boil over
You can't keep us down forever

We got too big for the cage, you locked us up in
Let's mark this down as the day, that we started something
So open the gate, open the gate cause when we
Finally escape, finally escape we'll be
Tearing through the streets
Running with the wild things

Standardization of the masses
Give us a number fail or pass us
Standardization of the masses
Give us a number fail or pass us

Education, manipulation
Decide our fate but never ask us
Education, manipulation
Decide our fate but never ask us
Never ask us, never ask us

We got too big for the cage, you locked us up in
Let's mark this down as the day, that we started something
So open the gate, open the gate cause when we
Finally escape, finally escape we'll be
Tearing through the streets
Running with the wild things
