Shasta College, Simpson University & UC Davis
What is success?
Graduating from college so you could be the best?
The best, the best, the best of what?
So you can get out of college stuck in a rut?
They tell you that money is the ultimate prize
You go to college to make bank, to grow smarter, grow wise
But is that all that there is to life?
To go to school, to work, to avoid struggle and strife?
I feel like my calling in bigger than that
A dream that sours above all STATs
Don't you see that the big picture is above what they say
more important, more immense than the sum of your pay
God had a word for what it means to live right
SHALOM, piece onto you, a world without blight
So stop counting, and start amounting to the ultimate goal
Help, give, repent, renew your soul
