I won't teach the tragically stupid
I won't educate those unwilling to learn
I won't pass anyone who ultimately fails
I won't read the pages that you turn

You never listen to what I say
You never listen so just go away
I am your mentor and you're my pupil
Your head is empty space that I can't fill

I can't help those who will never change
I can't move those frozen in yesterday
I can't reverse years of neglect
I can't cover the price that you'll pay

You never listen to what I say
You never listen so just go away
I am your mentor and you're my pupil
Your head is empty space that I can't fill

I'll never be able to make you understand
I'll never be able to make you see
I can't open doors with iron locks
I'll never be able to find your key

You never listen to what I say
You never listen so just go away
I am your mentor and you're my pupil
Your head is empty space that I can't fill

I can't force feed your hunger
I can't quench your dying thirst
I can't change what happened with us
I can't help it if I was your first

You never listen to what I say
You never listen so just go away
I am your mentor and you're my pupil
Your head is empty space that I can't fill
