Lyrics

His story’s well known, he’d been kicked out of school

They called him a creep, said that he wasn’t cool

Like a failed rough draft paper, he’d been crumpled and tossed

He’s just one more kid that America lost

 

The kids ain’t alright, no, the kids ain’t ok

There’s something gone wrong here, in our own USA

But fixing what’s broke comes at too high a cost

He’s just one more kid that America lost

 

Instrumental

 

In a war of his own he plays Halo and Doom

Doesn’t have one real friend, just sits alone in his room

He thought it would be fun to get a real gun

And shoot some real kids, yeah, that’s how it’s won

 

 

The kids ain’t alright, no, the kids ain’t ok

There’s something gone wrong here, in our own USA

But fixing what’s broke comes at too high a cost

He’s just one more kid that America lost

 

The kids ain’t alright, no, the kids ain’t ok

There’s something gone wrong here, in our own USA

But fixing what’s broke is gonna take a big fight

So we gotta stand up til our kids are alright

 

Yeah, fixing what’s broke is gonna take a big fight

So we gotta stand up til the kids are alright

My Daily Bread

 

How many seconds, how many minutes

How many hours, how many days?

Next week my rent is due, gotta make it through 

On minimum wage

 

We watch your kids, we wash your car

We blow the leaves out of your yard

We paint your walls we built your house 

And they wanna build a wall to keep us out

 

Baby’s milk and mama’s pills

Working two jobs to pay my bills

Just can’t seem to get ahead

Chasin’ down my daily bread

 

I help you and you help me

That’s how the Golden Rule should be

Babysitter’s sick, gonna lose a day

That left front tire will have to wait

 

We milk your cows, we pick your fruit

We press your pretty business suit

They say we’re blessed but we feel meek

When one bad tooth costs us a week

 

Baby’s milk and mama’s pills

Working two jobs to pay my bills

Just can’t seem to get ahead

Chasin’ down my daily bread

 

How many seconds, how many minutes

How many hours, how many days?

Next week my rent is due, gotta make it through on

Minimum wage

 

How many seconds, how many minutes

How many hours, how many days?

Next week my rent is due, gotta make it through on

Minimum wage

Next week my rent is due, gotta make it through on

Minimum wage

Lyrics

I KNOW YOU

 

She’s been down, been kicked around

Been abandoned in her greatest time of need

But still somehow, even now

She always makes it through the pain despite the problems that you see

 

And she don’t try to be no hero

And she don’t fly like Superman or try to save the world

She just tries to make things better

For friends she cares about, she’s been that way since she was just a girl, and honey

 

I KNOW YOU are gonna make it through, ‘cause

I KNOW YOU will make sure I do, too!

 

If you’ve been down, been kicked around

Been abandoned In your greatest time of need

I’ll tell you how, even now

You can make it through the pain despite the problems that you see

 

You don’t have to try to be no hero

You don’t have to fly like Superman or save the human race

You just gotta try to see a friend in the mirror 

And know inside you’ll be ok and tell that to your face, and just say

 

I KNOW YOU are gonna make it through, ‘cause

I KNOW YOU will make sure I do, too!

 

I KNOW 

You will make it through, ‘cause

I KNOW 

You’ll make sure I do too, oh!

 

I KNOW YOU are gonna make it through, ‘cause

I KNOW YOU will make sure I do, too!
