I thought you swore you didn't have a goddamn gun
Well son of a gun
Did they make you run?
Into the first pair of arms
That you mistook for love
And just maybe it even was

But she's not your friend
No she's not your friend
Ah, she's not your friend
She can tell you what you want
But she's not your friend

Hey! And I thought about when you were young
Walkin' down the street
Banging on your drums
And your growing pains
Were more than real
Hurt you in your bones
Hurt you everywhere you can feel

And angel boy you never even knew
That they'd try to make it so hard
Make it hard on you
And I never even had a chance to say goodbye
Couldn't even try
Couldn't even try
Not as dumb as you tried to make us believe
So stifle the scream
Behind your smilin' grindin' teeth
A smile and a scream

No, she's not your friend
No, she's not your friend
She's not your friend
She can tell you what you want
Ah, but she's not your friend

And I thought about when you were young
Sittin' under trees
Banging on your drums
And your growin' pains
Were more than real
She hurt you in your bones
Hurt you everywhere you can feel

And angel boy you never even knew
That they'd try to make it so hard
Make it hard on you
I never even had a chance to say goodbye
Couldn't even try
Couldn't even try
