Skole

[Pede B]
Lige da jeg troede, jeg forstod det
Så jeg min verden dreje på en krone
Som om jeg kom uden for min rute
Måske jeg bare sku' gå tilbage i skole?
Lige da jeg troede, jeg forstod det
Så jeg min verden dreje på en krone
Som om jeg kom uden for min rute
Måske jeg bare sku’ gå tilbage i skole?
 
Jeg sad i børnehaven og forestillede
At når jeg kom i folkeren, ville der være orden på tingene
Men der kiggede man på dem, der kastede karameller
Og tænkte, når jeg bli'r færdig, bli'r det hele meget letter’
Men der' hele tiden en enkelt ting, man skal ordne
Før man kommer op, hvor man sidder med alle kortene
Og det' som om, jeg gennem alle årene
Sigter på ting, der viser sig at være noget andet, når man får det
Det' naturstridig matematik
Har aldrig vidst så meget og fattet så lidt
For jeg ser folk bli'r arbejdsløse efter 12-talssnit
Og gamle drenge gå i hundende efter gangstershit
De gik fra hooligans for FCK til at få veste på
Nu' de paranoide, når de blinkende lygter' baby blå
Var der kun én rigtig vej, ville jeg gætte på
Det var den samme rute, som vi alle ville gennemgå

[Pede B]
Jeg har aldrig følt mig mindre erfaren
End dagen, hvor jeg fik et barn
Men det blik, han sendte til mig, sagde: "Ingen alarm"
Uanset hvad, der sker, ja, så fikser vi det sammen
Og sorry, kid, hvis jeg spoiler lidt
Jeg troede, rejsen op ad bjerget vil' gi’ overblik
Det bedste ved at bli’ voksen, det' overfedt
Er opdage alle dem omkring dig, de forstår lige så lidt
For hvis din rute var lagt super kompakt
Og du aldrig fik lov til at træde ude af takt
Ville jeg sikkert føle mig en smule fortabt
Mens andre ville smile bredt og sige: "Tusind tak"
Det’ ligesom, man ikk' ska' møde sine helte
For myten vil smelte, når man bare støder på et menneske
Moralen er, jeg ikk' ved en skid
Men at sige det højt gør mig sikkert til et dobbeltmoralsk individ

[Pede B]
En, to, ligefrem, kom igang
Vi har sat kursen imod bedre tider
Så mange planer, der blev lagt, for de ting du vil gøre
Vi ku' skrive en to-do list på femten sider
Og hvis du pludselig var der, hvor du allerhelst vil være
Hvorfor sku' du så stå op i morgen og kæmpe videre, hva'?
Hvorfor?
Huh?

School

[Pede B]
Just as I thought I understood it
I watched my world turn on a dime
As though I'd left my route
Perhaps I should just return to school
Just as I thought I understood it
I watched my world turn on a dime
As though I'd left my route
Perhaps I should just return to school
 
I was in kindergarten, imagining
That when I'd go to school, things would fall into place
But there, I looked at the people tossing caramels1
Thinking that everything would be easier once I was done there
But there keeps on being one thing you need to do
Before you reach the place where you have all the answers
And it's as though I throughout all the years
Aim for things which turn out to be something else once I get it
It's unnatural math
I've never known this much and understood so little
I've seen people going unemployed after getting straight As
And old boys falling apart after some gangster shit
They went from being FCK hooligans to wearing vests
Now they're paranoid whenever they flickering lights are baby blue
If there only were only one correct path, I'd guess
It would be the same route we'd all have to go through

I've never felt less experienced
Than the day I got a child
But the way he looked at me told me, "Don't worry"
No matter what'll happen, well, we'll fix it together
And sorry, kid, if I'm about to reveal spoilers
I thought the journey up the mountain would give me overview
The best thing about becoming an adult, it's awesome,
It's discovering that everyone around you understand just as little
'Cause if your path was was made super compact
And you never were allowed to step out of line
I'd probably feel a little lost
While others would give a wide smiley, saying, "Thank you"
It's as though you're not supposed to meet your heroes
'Cause the myth will melt when you're just face to face with a human
The moral is that I don't know shit
But saying that out loud probably makes me a person with double standards

[Pede B]
One, two, straight ahead, get started
We've set the course for better times
So many plans were made for the things you want to do
We could write a fifteen pages long to-do list
And if you're suddenly where you'd like to be the most
Why would you get up in the morning and keep on fighting, huh?
Why?
Huh?
