Messed Up Kids

Album: Shangri La (2013)
Charted: 71
  • Johnny deals a bit of blow on the side
    Thinks that he's invincible, hates a fight
    Jenny walks the streets alone she was fine
    But she got kicked out of her home in hard times

    The messed up kids are on the corner with no money
    They sell their time they sell their drugs, they sell their body
    And everywhere I see a sea of empty pockets
    Beautiful girls with eyes so dark within their sockets, so far away
    It's a washed out Saturday
    The sky all pastel shades
    Under breeze block palisades

    Lights are smashed, the streets are closed in the town
    Places no one really goes to hang around
    Give up on us long ago with no hope
    All you hear's the cold wind blow and get stoned

    The messed up kids are on the corner with no money
    They sell their time they sell their drugs, they sell their body
    And everywhere I see a sea of empty pockets
    Beautiful girls with eyes so dark within their sockets, so far away
    It's a washed out Saturday
    The sky all pastel shades
    Under breeze block palisades

    The messed up kids are on the corner with no money
    They sell their time they sell their drugs, they sell their body
    And everywhere I see a sea of empty pockets
    Beautiful girls with eyes so dark within their sockets, so far away
    It's a washed out Saturday
    The sky all pastel shades
    Under breeze block palisades Writer/s: BRENDAN BENSON, JAKE BUGG, LAIN ARCHER
