    "Education" Lyrics

    Remedy feat. RZA

    [Man over P.A. system]
    I need your attention now kids
    Due to the recent events that have occurred
    Effective immediately, all classes are suspended
    Until further notice

    Black and white notebooks and ball-point pens
    The first day of school, might make some new friends
    From the 103, dreams to me was a Benz
    Or the 3 o'clock bell that sounds when school ends

    Lunch room status, we used to roll dice
    Bang beats on the tables to see who was nice
    Swore we knew it all, didn't want no advice
    How unfortunate, some paid the ultimate price

    We used to cut class all day, roam around the hallways
    With little wooden passes
    I remember 6th grade, assembly, shirt with tie
    The young little Remedy, wonderin why

    I did what I was told to get to junior high
    'cause at that point in time I believed I could fly
    Big blue binders, young designer finders
    Livin' in the world with no rules, high school

    Language arts, I sat and wrote darts
    My mind ran wild and free like +Young Hearts+
    Mathematics, where I based my foundation

    Fall to the nation on wack Education

    [Chorus: Children of the World (Remedy)]
    We don't need no Education
    We don't need no thought control
    (What we need?)
    What we need is information
    Teach us, leave those kids alone

    Yo, yo, sit in the back of the class with my hand up
    2 wild security guards just grabbed my man up (HEY!)
    Threw him in detention for 5 days suspension
    'cause sunset, the teacher was lyin about the Indians
    Tryin to tell much of the story of Columbus
    Tryin to brain-numb us, when all you see, that came from us
    They copy-carvin, I learned about Gods and
    Taggin Wu logos on the corner in my book margin

    Phat shoe laces and tri-colored sneakers
    I stood up like a man then I questioned the teacher
    "How did Europeans black out in dark ages?
    And when it got light did they white-wash the pages?
    Why is it average college kids stuck with low wages?
    You wonder why these students walk around with 12 gauges?"
    Intense like a New York riot, she stood quiet
    And said, "Mr. Diggs, may I please speak to you in private?"


    "Put away your things, pop quiz"
    Yo who he thing he is though messin with them kids?
    All he ever did in my 9 to 3 bid yo
    We don't really need no, won't you let us live
    Misinformation straight from the board of education
    Percential government issue number 2 pencils
    Scantron sheets, gettin mark incompletes
    Yo, "Keep still", "Get up on the wall", "Fire drill"
    Routine line-up, snitch how you do us
    Try and fool us with the big yellow school bus
    But nonsense, parent/teacher conference
    The system's invincible, go see the principal


    [Remedy (Children of the World)]
    Put a freeze on the nation, board of Education
    (Hey teachers! Leave those kids alone!)
    Try and fool us with the big yellow school bus
    (All in all we're just another brick in the wall)
    Diploma or not, got to use what you got
    (All in all we're just another brick in the wall)
    Even if you drop out, there is no cop out
    (All in all we're just another brick in the wall)
    Bunch of preachers, so-called teachers


    [Outro: Children of the World]
    Hey teachers! Leave those kids alone!
