Islands - The Kids Don't Know Shit



Lungs love holes escaping words you know
Smoke gets in your eyes still blowing in the wind
And we can't beat this cancer, can we?
Answer me

Kids don't know shit
Everything they've learned is wrong
Boys in the neighborhood are fit
'Cause they fight all night long

Kids don't know it
But everything they've touched is gone
'Cause no one understands
You can't stand under something that's all wrong

When you're facing the day
When you're wasting away
And you get lighter than your brain
And it grows tighter everyday


Love's lungs hold air to blow a hole
Cold chest grows, fills up with smoke
At least your head is warm
Still forming ways to warm the baby, the baby's bed

'Cause kids don't know shit
Everything they've learned is wrong
And the girls on the block are listening in
They sing let's get strong

Kids don't know it
But everything they've got is gone
We used it for some fuel and food
Then the rats took it from us and made a bomb

Words love holes
Getting lost in lies we know
Still believing branches weaving forests
Leaving helps them grow

Kids don't know shit
Everything we learned was wrong
Alright, deep down we knew it
We always knew it all along

Nebular splendor
I'll remember those constellations forever
A cursory person turns to me and says
Well, you won't live forever
