they called him a nerd
they called him a geek
they beat up on him
they said he was weak

they did everything
that they could do wrong
they laughed it all off
they said it was fun

but what has become of the boy?
he cries himself to sleep
nobody hears him weep
hes beaten down and breaking up
looking for some place to hide

what has become of a world
where kids can be so cruel?
they'll do anything for
that shred of popularity
they'll stab you in the back!

what has become of the boy?
what has become of the boy?
woah woah
but what has become of the boy?

    General CommentKeith from Unspoken Promise:
    "this song is about every kid who was different during his school years. Every kid who has been cast out, beat down, made fun of, or belittled in anyway. Most of us know how that feels, and I thought we should write a song about it all"

    I said that
