"The Kids Are All Fucked Up" as written by David Katz, Gabe Saporta and Sam Hollander....
How could you know?
Why would you care?
I'm losing control
Are you getting scared?

I'm making new friends
And we're making out
We're gonna pretend
That we're taking everything yeah

They don't know about us
Everyone's asleep when we play
Yeah, the kids are all fucked up

Now it's too late to go
It's getting light out
I know you don't wanna
Sleep here alone
Just take it easy

So leave us alone
When we're riding high
Mister police
Ain't hurting no one

The city's asleep
And the world is mine
We hide and go seek
And you know they'll never, never, ever find us

They don't know about us
Everyone's asleep when we play
Yeah the kids are all fucked up

Now it's too late to go
It's getting light out
I know you don't wanna
Sleep here alone
Just take it easy

Now it's too late to go
It's getting light out
I know you don't wanna
Sleep here alone

The world is fading
I'm here with you
If you start shaking
I'll get you through it
Don't worry about anything
Just take it easy

It's too late to go
It's getting light out
I know you don't wanna
Sleep here alone
Just take it easy

Now it's too late to go
It's getting light out
I know you don't wanna
Sleep here alone
Just take it easy
