reach. go on.

hands don't match,
go and find the bars that make us hunger,
maybe with knots and uniforms,
and if i may add,
well i've got a big gun,
and i know just who i'm gonna use it on,
maybe it'll make for the better.

the beggar always has his strength,
his ambition is tapped,
always occupied on the john,
while he's there let's take advantage.

we are not the bringers of second chances gone within a moments notice,
and if it's genetic then i'll be fed through those same bars,
how appropriate.

days in march,
go, leave us in debt and always hoping,
maybe in ten more years i'll know him,
and if i may add,
well I've got a big syringe,
to show to all my close friends,
maybe i'll upgrade near the kiddies.

i'm still because i'm frozen.

    My InterpretationI'll go line-by-line, but the abridged version is something along the lines of how a kid is deemed a criminal because one[or both] of his parents are in jail and decides to inadvertently prove them right.

    reach. go on.

    hands don't match
    go and find the bars that make us hunger[this is perhaps the parents telling the kid something in hopes that he understands why they're in prison?]
    maybe with knots and uniforms[maybe other kids are making fun of the POV character, saying if he wants to be closer to his parents, become a prison guard]
    and if i may add,
    well i've got a big gun
    and i know just who i'm gonna use it on
    maybe it'll make for the better.[the kid then retorts that he has a gun, and he knows how to use it, and that he'll shoot certain people]

    the beggar always has his strength
    his ambition is tapped[the kid is easily manipulated because of his hunger for (his parents') attention?]
    always occupied on the john[he hides in the bathroom because he is bullied a lot]
    while he's there let's take advantage.[so eventually the bullies catch on]

    we are not the bringers of second chances gone within a moments notice[not sure what this line means]
    and if it's genetic then i'll be fed through those same bars
    how appropriate.[the kid muses on how all these scientists keep talking about criminals being genetically criminal, and if this is all true, then he has no choice in whether or not he becomes like his parents in prison]

    days in march
    go, leave us in debt and always hoping
    maybe in ten more years i'll know him[the kid misses his parents, and the parents feel the same way...and neither feel like they know each other]
    and if i may add
    well I've got a big syringe
    to show to all my close friends
    maybe i'll upgrade near the kiddies[the kid starts doing drugs to look tough and perhaps because of his lonliness, and shows off whatever drugs he's doing in order to project this image]

    i'm still because i'm frozen[again, not sure what this line could mean]
