See the rollers rolling up
They put me in the handcuffs
In the handcuffs
I didn't do nothing wrong
Just trying to get along
Just trying to get along

So don't smile your eyes at me
Cuz it don't mean shit to a latchkey kid
Hard knocks have made me hard as a rock
Don't want to let it into my heart
But it's getting to my head

Latchkey kid
Better off dead...

Where does our childhood go?
We grow up before we every really grow
Sometimes I want to swoop down and save you
We gotta make our own mistakes
But I can't watch you fucking up

I can still remember that smiling face
That made me feel not so out of place
Out of place...

Latchkey kid
Better off dead...
