The Kids Aren't Alright

Album: American Beauty/American Psycho (2015)
  • Stuck in the jet wash
    Bad trip I couldn't get off
    And maybe I bit off more than I could chew
    And overhead of the aqua blue

    Fall to your knees bring on the rapture
    Blessed be the boys time can't capture
    On film or between the sheets
    I always fall from your window
    To the pitch black streets

    And with the black banners raised as the crooked smiles fade
    Former heroes who quit too late
    Just wanna fill up the trophy case again

    And in the end
    I'd do it all again
    I think you're my best friend
    Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright
    I'll be yours
    When it rains it pours
    Stay thirsty like before
    Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright

    I'm not passive but aggressive
    Take note, it's not impressive
    Empty your sadness, like you're dumping your purse
    On my bedroom floor
    We put your curse in reverse

    And it's our time now if you want to to be
    More the war like the carnival bears set free
    And your love is anemic and I can't believe
    That you couldn't see it coming from me

    And I still feel that rush in my veins
    It twists my head just a bit too thin
    All those people in those old photographs I've seen are dead

    And in the end
    I'd do it all again
    I think you're my best friend
    Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright
    I'll be yours
    When it rains it pours
    Stay thirsty like before
    Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright

    And sometimes I just want to sit around
    And gaze at my shoes yeah
    And let your dirty sadness fill me up
    Just like a balloon

    And in the end
    I'd do it all again
    I think you're my best friend
    Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright
    And I'll be yours
    When it rains it pours
    Stay thirsty like before
    Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright Writer/s: ANDREW HURLEY, AZEALIA BANKS, JOSEPH TROHMAN, KEVIN JAMES, PATRICK STUMP, PETER WENTZ
