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 senior year All you care about is your career [Chorus] It's a Life Sentence It's a Life Sentence It's a Life Sentence It's a 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 [Chorus] 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 That's your Life Sentence
