Songfacts®:

  • The song, written for the movie Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, talks about how adults think they rule the world and how kids know they can take charge with certain things. The video shows an example: it begins with Aaron on a school field trip at a museum. The tour guide is boring the kids, and Aaron finds a door that is off limits. He goes in anyhow and finds himself in a high-tech studio where he fools around. At the end of the video, he sees the fun is about to end when the self-destruct is activated. he dives to stop it, and that's where the video cuts off. >>
