With your knife and your bottle and your silver spoon,
No one knows what you're gonna do
So stay away from everything that isn't true
Cos when I hung around with someone else
Take your anger off the shelf
And arrange it in a way that no one else could do
But you

Cos if you're dying I'd like to know
And if you're on one I need to show
Cos you were saying you was alone
Well there's something you need to know

I'm sixteen and I'm really bored
But we're not gonna use you we're just scared we're gonna lose you
Things are better when you are on board
I'm sure

But if you're dying I'd like to know
And if you're on one I need to show
Cos you were saying you was alone
Well there's something you need to know
That you will always be my hero
With the way that you're letting go
And were saying that you was alone
Well there's something you need to know

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite Cribs songs. Maybe cause I'm sixteen and I'm really bored.

    General CommentTo me this is basically about being a teenager, but being a teenager myself I could just be interpreting everything that way.

    General Commenti think its basically a sort of conversation between a teenager and his parents
    theyre telling him that theyd like to know how he feels ("if youre dieing then id like to know" etc)
    and then you hear some of the stuff from the teens side, thats the "im sixteen and im really bored" part
    thats the way i figure it

    General CommentI love the very end of this song where Ryan says something like 'go back Knobhead', quality!

    General CommentI guess it's about someone has been kicked out of a group because he's different than the truth. Ryan is in the group, but the someone will always be his hero..
