Sweet 16
Innocent and angry
Black holes I carry
Heavy dead sea
Born to death
In small town glory
Black-out drunk
Spirits looming over me

Smoking outside
Under that yellow sign
3 AM
I know this life's not mine
Floating upwards
Floating upwards

Teen dream death machine
I'm the only friend you need
The only friend you need
Teen dream death machine
I'm the only friend you need
The only friend you need

Nothing holds me
Destruction's so loud
Wanna make my mother proud
Wanna make my mother proud
I loom over you
I loom over you

Death came looking
For me at the party
Wanted to see
Wanted to know what you could show me
Electric heart (Floating upwards)
Electric heart (Floating upwards)

Teen dream death machine
I'm the only friend you need
The only friend you need
Teen dream death machine
I'm the only friend you need
The only friend you need

I'll take you with me
You're the only friend that I need

Teen dream death machine
Teen dream death machine

We just burn bright
You're on the other side
Escaping means to leave you
Greyhound station
My father's tears
Looking for a new start
I couldn't find it, hey

Teen dream death machine
I'm the only friend you need
The only friend you need
Teen dream death machine
I'm the only friend you need
The only friend you need

I'll take you with me
You're the only friend that I need

Teen dream death machine
Teen dream death machine

    My InterpretationI think the song is about a teen who pushes others away and does drugs and alcohol to the point that it will kill them. The 'friend' referred to in the chorus is Death.
