"Kid Gone Astray" as written by and David Colwell Andy Barnett....
He waits every evening outside schoolyard gates
Dealing death whoever wants to pay
Hide your tears act much older than your years
Can't you see it's building up this way?
Just another kid gone astray

Hey mamma, did you know just where your baby's gone
Do you know she walks the streets at night
Emergency, but you can't believe just what you see
Read the news it happens every day
Just another kid gone astray

Don't bite the helping hand
That reaches out to understand
We all need a little time
To put the reason to the rhyme
Everbody has their day
But sooner or later we're all gonna stray
Gone astray
Just like a loaded gun, finger on the trigger
And having fun
Nobody'd gonna stand in my way

Don't lose touch, slip through my hands
And out of reach
Come onn back, we'll work it out someway
The stakes are high, but you can't gamble with your life
Can't you see I need you here today
Just another kid gone astray
