The Kids Aren't All Right

by The Offspring

When we were young our future was so bright

The old neighborhood was so alive

And every kid on the whole damn street

Was gonna make it big and not be beat

/ Am / F / C / G / :

Now our neighborhood's cracked and torn

The kids are grown up but their lives are worn

How can one little street

Swallow so many lives


Chances blown, nothing's free

Longing for what used to be

Still it's hard, hard to see

Fragile lives, shattered dreams


/ Am F / C G / :

Jamie had a chance, well she really did

Instead she dropped out and had a couple of kids

Mark still lives at home cause he's got no job

He just plays guitar and smokes a lot of pot

Jay committed suicide

Brandon OD'd and died

What the hell is going on

The cruelest dream, reality
