The Kids Aren't Alright
    #2879917 - 07/12/04 12:18 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

One of my favorite songs by The Offspring:

When we were young the future was so bright,
The old neighborhood was so alive!
And every kid on the whole damn street,
Was gonna make it big in every beat!

Now the neighborhood's cracked and torn,
The kids are grown up but their lives are worn!
How can one little street
Swallow so many lives?!

Chances thrown!
Nothing's free!
Longing for!
Used to be!
Still it's hard!
Hard to see!
Fragile lives!
Shattered dreams!

Jenny had a chance, well she realy did,
Instead she dropped out and had a couple of kids!
Mark still lives at home cause he's got no job,
He just plays guitar and smokes a lot of pot!

Jay committed suicide!
Brandon OD'd and died!
What the hell is going on?
The cruellest dream - reality!

Chances thrown!
Nothing's free!
Longing for!
What used to be!
Still it's hard!
Hard to see!
Fragile lives!
Shattered dreams!


--------------------
You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Then shot in his head
All I know is dead bodies
Can't fuck with me again"

I'm usually not fond of the mediocre metal core out these days, but evergreen terrace's cover of that's not too bad... I feel gross for having said that!

I definitely wouldn't call this song "metal core"...and it's not really from "these days" :smirk:

It's called "Smash" and yeah it's one of their best!!

The Kids Aren't Alright is from the "Americana" CD
