"Teenager" as written by and Kevin Griffin....
Listen to them fight
Hear your mother cry
Weekend at your dad's
They don't know what they do to you
Teenager
Teenager

Wrap yourself in black
Listen to The Cure
'Love-line' won't call back
They don't know, they don't care, they don't see, but I do
And if it feels good, do it
'cause if it tastes fine, then drink
There's a range of possibilities to find
Teenager
Teenager

No-one knows your name
No-one hears your cry
Fall in with the fringe
'cause they know what you're going through..they do
And if it feels good, do it
And if it tastes fine, then drink
There's a range of possibilities to find
Teenager
Teenager

No-one's wrong, no-one's right
It comes down on you
I have found the light, inside mine
Hear your mother cry
Fade into the night
When they ask you why
They won't know, they won't feel, they won't see
But you will

And if it feels good, do it
'cause if it tastes fine, then drink
Well there's a range of possibilities to find
Well if it feels good, do it

'cause if it tastes fine, then drink
Well there's a range of possibilities to find
Teenager
Teenager

    General CommentYep, average teenager alright... that feeling that nobody understands or cares leads to the lyrics, "They don't know/They don't care/They don't see." And today, society is obsessed with throwing alcohol down young people's throats, anything to make a buck. So they capitalize on the slogan, "If it feels good do it."

    General CommentI can really relate to this song. My parents are going through a divorce and I hear my mother crying in her room at night. And sometimes I feel like no one can see me and nobody cares.

    General Commentthis song is so awesome because it's so cliche'd but it's so true for a lot of people...see, it's cliche'd, but only Better Than Ezra thought to write about it, that makes it unique. I love these guys....

    General CommentMost of this song is the life of almost every kid I knew in high school.
    Part of it was the dream of every kid I knew: They don't care, But I do.
    Everyone wants to be understood.
    I thank God I'm not a teenager anymore.
