Lyrics

THE KIDS AIN’T ALRIGHT

 

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

  

He sits in his room with his Halo and Doom

Doesn’t have one real friend,  just kids he plays with online

He thought it would be fun to get a real gun

And shoot some real kids, ah, wouldn’t it be fine

 

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
