the kids aren't alright


when we were young the future was so bright (whoa)
the old neighborhood was so alive (whoa)
and every kid on the whole damn street (whoa)
was gonna make it big and not be beat

now the neighborhood's cracked and torn (whoa)
the kids are grown up but their lives are worn(whoa)
how can one little street
swallow so many lives?

chances blown
nothing's free
longing for
what used to be
still it's hard
hard to see
fragile lives
shattered dreams
go!!

janie had a chance, well she really did (whoa)
instead she dropped out and had a couple of kids (whoa)
munsen's at home cause he's got no job (whoa)
just plays guitar, smokes a lot of pot (whoa)

she commited suicide (whoa)
brandy od'd and died (whoa)
what the hell is going on?
cruellest dream, reality

hit that

the winds of fortune
don't blow the same
she had to get out
and make a change
she had a kid now
but much too young
that baby daddy's out having fun

he's saying
i'm on a roll
with all the girls i know
his baby momma
she ain't so slow
he's saying
i'm on a roll
with all the girls i know
i know you wanna hit that
i know you wanna hit that hit that
all the world is gettin' with, i say
consequences are a lot, but hey
that's the way
that's the way things go

what was a family
is now a shell
we're raising kids now
who raise themselves
sex is a weapon
it's like a drug
it gets him right into that grave that he just dug

she's saying
i'm on the run
i'm chasing guys for fun
her baby daddy
it ain't his only one
she's saying
i'm on the run
i'm chasing guys for fun
i know you wanna hit that
i know you wanna hit that hit that
everybody's gettin' with, i say
consequences are a lot, but hey
that's the way
that's the way things go

well it winds up
broken up
really such a shame
but why not
take a chance
everything's a game
and it don't stop
hooking up
nothing's gonna change
the more he's trying
the more he's buying

he says
i'm on a roll
with all the girls i know
his baby momma
don't need to know
he's saying
i'm on a roll
with all the girls i know
i know you wanna hit that
i know you wanna hit that hit that
all the world is gettin' with, i say
consequences are a lot, but hey
that's the way
that's the way things go

self esteem

la la la la la la la la la la
i wrote her off for the tenth time today
and practiced all the things i would say
when she came over
i lost my nerve
i took her back and made her dessert
now i know i'm being used
that's okay man cause i like the abuse
i know she's playing with me
that's okay cause i've got no self esteem

oh wayo, yeah, yeah
ohhhhhhh, yeah, yeah (repeat three times)

we make plans to go out at night
i wait till 2 then i turn out the light
this rejection’s got me so low
if she keeps it up i just might tell her so

when she's saying, all that she want's only me
then i wonder why she sleeps with my friends
when she saying, that i'm like a disease
then i wonder how much more i can spend
well i guess, i should speak up for myself
but i really think it's better this way
the more you suffer
the more it shows you really care right? yeah!

now i'll relate, this little bit
that happens more than i'd like to admit
late at night, she knocks on my door
she's drunk again and, looking to score
now i know, i should say no, but
that's kind of hard when she's ready to go
i may be dumb, but i'm not a dweeb
i'm just a sucker with no self esteem

when she's saying, all that she want's only me
then i wonder why she sleeps with my friends
when she's saying, that i'm like a disease
then i wonder how much more i can spend
well i guess, i should speak up for myself
but i really think it's better this way
the more you suffer
the more it shows you really care right? yeah!

gone away

maybe in another life
i could find you there
pulled away before your time
i can't deal it's so unfair

and it feels
and it feels like
heaven's so far away
and it feels
yeah it feels like
the world has grown cold
now that you've gone away

leaving flowers on your grave
show that i still care
but black roses and hail mary's
can't bring back what's taken from me

i reach to the sky
and call out your name
and if i could trade
i would

and it feels
and it feels like
heaven's so far away
and it stings
yeah it stings now
the world is so cold
now that you've gone away
gone away, gone away, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

oooooo, yeah oooooo, oooooo, ohh yeah

i'll save your soul
whoa. yeaaaaaeeeaaeah. mm

i reach to the sky
and call out your name
oh please let me trade
i would

and it feels
and it feels like
heaven's so far away
and it feels
yeah it feels like
the world has grown cold
now that you've gone away
gone away, gone away, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

oooooo, yeah oooooo, oooooo, ohh yeah

spare me the details

my girlfriend, my dumb donut
went out to a party just the other night
but 3 hours later and 7 shots of jäger,
she was in the bedroom with another guy

and i don't really wanna know
so don't tell me anymore
and i really don't wanna hear
about her feet all up in the air

and well, i'm not the one who acted like a hoe
why must i be the one who has to know?
i'm not the one who messed up big time
so spare me the details, if you don't mind

now i can understand friends who wanna tell me
think they're gonna help me open up my eyes
but the play-by-play makes me want to lose it
everytime you do it, man, it turns the knife

and i don't really wanna know
so don't tell me anymore
and i really don't wanna hear
about her feet all up in the air

and well, i'm not the one who acted like a hoe
why must i be the one who has to know?
i'm not the one who messed up big time
so spare me the details, if you don't mind

now i don't need to hear about the sounds they were making
and i don't need to hear about how long it was taking
or how the walls, they were shaking

now i'm lying in bed, wallowing in sorrow
missing the tomorrow that we could have had
running through my head, over and over
things i never told her now just make me sad
and it drives me insane, sitting with a vision
stuck with that image burned into my brain
and i feel so dumb that i could ever trust her
while someone else ****ed her, then walked away

and i don't really wanna know
so don't tell me anymore
and i really don't wanna hear
about her feet all up in the air

and so, i'm not the one who acted like a hoe why must i be the one who has to know?
i'm not the one who messed up big time
so spare me the details, if you don't mind

(cause i don't wanna know)
(don't wanna know) spare me the details if you don't mind
