"Teenagers" as written by Daniel Raphael Rossen and Fred Hurley Nicolaus....
Something's bubbling up inside your holy head
You want to leave me but you don't know how to say it
Try to tell me other ways, didn't do any good

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Something's bubbling up inside my head
I want to stay here but I don't know how
Gone, you'll be gone, with all that we should be gone
In the morning, morning
Maybe we should back it together
But I don't know if it'd be much better, oh

Teenagers, teenagers, teenagers
Teenagers, teenagers, teenagers

Something's tumbling down inside your holy head
I know you're hiding when you drive by with your hood on
Gone, you'll be gone, with all that we should be done
In the morning, morning
(morning, morning)

Teenagers, teenagers, teenagers
Teenagers, teenagers, teenagers

    General CommentI like listening to this song side by side with "Phantom other". To me, the two songs seem to be talking about a relationship; one taking the perspective of the male and one the female.

    General CommentIt's about young CHILDREN and those who are old but want to hang onto their youth, only they CAN'T. That doesn't preclude them from having fun; drinking; enjoying life. It just means they're not IDIOTS who settle!

    Song ComparisonThe video seems to be a depiction of the Columbine murderers. Not sure how that relates to a song that seems from the lyrics to be about teenagers not knowing their minds or how to express themselves straight forwardly.
