lyrics

And when you turn fourteen,
You'll see that you've been told lies.
And when you turn fifteen,
They'll take the stars right out your eyes.
And when you turn sixteen,
You'll drink and smoke and you'll cuss.
And when you turn seventeen,
They won't see you around much.

And when you turn fourteen,
You'll start to think it might be nice to die.
And when you turn fifteen,
Your mother won't do a single thing but cry.
And when you turn sixteen,
You'll pass me walking down the hall.
Come then, you won't even know my name,
But we'll be thinking the same damn thing.

And when you turn fourteen,
You'll see the world the way it really is,
And when you turn fifteen,
You won't have a thing but disdain for it,
And when you turn sixteen,
You'll find you've got blood on your hands.
The world's gonna grab you by the hair on your head
And it'll throw you as hard as it can.

Neighborhood kids,
Puffy-eyed and Hellbent.
They crack their necks against the sidewalk
And they dissolve into the cement.
