Gotta Keep My Head Down - Part 1

BUSKER

Head into the jungle,

Gotta keep your head down,

Gonna get through this

Hmm

Listen to the rules

Don’t get into the wrong crowd

Don’t say your thoughts aloud

Hmm


BOY

Head into the jungle,

Gotta keep my head down,

Gonna get through this

Here I go

Gotta keep my head down,

Gonna do my dad proud

Gotta keep my head down

Here I go


ENSEMBLE

Gotta keep my head down,

Gonna do myself proud

Gotta keep my head down

Here I go

Gotta keep my head down,

Gonna do myself proud

Gotta keep my head down

Here I go


BOY

If I could just

be someone I’m not

then I could change the way that people see me

change the way that people treat me

‘Cause the noise

it drowns out the silence

And I need some space to hear my thoughts

I need some space to listen

If I can just

Get through this year

Then I can get into a new place

Leave the shit behind


BUSKER

Over.

You can’t wait ’til it’s over

and though you try, you’re not getting any closer

You’re over worked and you’re over thinking what he showed ya

Only when you know will it give you any closure


You’re over looking any signs, any clues

And you over heard a rumour but you can’t believe it’s true

You’ll get over it eventually, but you need some closure

So you carry on, but you can’t wait for this to be over


ENSEMBLE

Sitting in silence,

Gotta keep my head down,

Gotta keep my head down

Hmm

Gotta keep my head down,

Gotta do myself proud

Gotta keep my head down

Hmm


BOY

The head walks in

Nobody moves,

Musical statues, you don’t wanna lose

He smiles at us says:


ENSEMBLE

Gotta keep your head down

Gotta do your school proud

You can achieve

Listen to the rules

Don’t get into the wrong crowd

Don’t say your thoughts aloud

Don’t think don’t speak


BOY

When you’re here you’re fighting on your own

There’s no battle to be won

Soon we’ll be gone

but life carries on life carries on

“You’ll be a man my son

You’ll be a man my son”
