"Moments" as written by and Jerry Peters....
You'll bruise their hearts, child. You'll live their lives? You'll fill their
Shoes, child? You'll still be right? You'll speak your words, child. You're
Still nieve. You'll tell your lies, child. They'll still believe. All you've
Ever said about them, it was never right. Has all you've learned here been
Forgotten? You're the perfect light? Don't strain your head, child, thinking
For them. Don't place the blame, child. Your time will come.

All you've ever thought about them, it was never right. Your "open mind" is
Sealed and settled, locked and bolted tight. All you've lived is moments in a
Fraction of their lives. It's sad you never notice when the stick is in your
Eye. You'll throw your stones, child. You'll never bleed? All you've ever said
About them, it was never right. And all you've ever thought about them, it was
Never right. The bleeding hearts and artists painted meanings in their songs.
And all the little children lost their minds and sang along. All that you said
Wasn't true.

    General CommentAnd all the little children lost their minds and sang along.

    Your "open mind" is sealed and settled,
    locked and bolted tight.

    two very powerful lines, the lyrics to this song are amazing.

    General CommentTo me the song is describing a situation in which a teenager is thrown in to an adult world to take care and manage everything. Though this young person thinks he or she can manage everything the reality is he or she is only a child and shouldn't have to carry a grown persons burden. It could really be parents who are irresponsible and this child is asuming all of tDon't strain your head, child,
    thinking for them.
    Don't place the blame, child.
    Your time will come. he responsibilty. The young person is taking the blame for the parents actions AND denying the fact that THEY are the ones who are wrong.
    "You'll bruise their hearts, child.
    You'll live their lives
    You'll fill their shoes, child
    You'll still be right
    You'll speak your words, child.
    You're still naïve."

    This line specifically speaks to the fact that the child is working as the adukt instead a being a kid.

    "Don't strain your head, child,
    thinking for them.
    Don't place the blame, child.
    Your time will come."

    This child hasnt been able to just be a kid.

    "All you've lived is moments in a fraction of their lives.
    It's sad you never notice when the stick is in your eye"

    The adult life is so much longer than that of the childs that the moments the child has lived have only been fractions of time in the adults life.

    Hey this is only my guess as to what this song could mean...
