Watching TV is such a big surprise to me
What's wrong with kids these days?
It starts with family and it ends in tragedy
What can we do or say?
Open your eyes you see what comes you'll regret
Then please take my hand it will be all set
Shooting off and all is still being handy with the steel
Just think of how they'll feel

Cuz I'm here for you now
There's no way there's no how
I'll let you stand alone
In the dark
I'll take you home
If you're wondering who's there and there's no one that cares
Always remember that I'm here
I'll try to take away your fear

Watching the little screen has shown so much of a calamity
The media is messed up today
They thrive on negativity and erase positivity
What can we do or say?
Open your mind you'll see its not all their fault
Don't point all you're fingers, in this wound add salt
Shooting off and all is still being handy with the steel
Just think of how they'll feel

And if this problem hits home
I hope it does it could
And if this problem hits home I hope it does, it should

If Mom and Dad were here, would kids still have fear?
Would they go and lose control?
We're not the Brady Bunch, but I still have a hunch that this long last problem with fold
Yea this long last problem will fold.

    General CommentI think this song is about all the problems that families tend to go through. Divorce, Death, Kids growing up and leaving home, kids being raised wrong. This seems like Steve's attempts to comfort his family, saying that he loves them no matter what happens. I think it could also be interpreted to be about a girl with abusive parents, an asshole boyfriend, and a low-paying job. He could be saying he is here to comfort her.

    General CommentI agree with Tradd. I'd add on to it, but I think he's got it pretty much covered.
