"Alright" as written by Leslie Pridgen, Ronnie Foster, Justin Gregory Smith and Allen Anthony....
We are young, we run green
Keep our teeth nice and clean
See our friends, see the sights
Feels alright

We wake up, we go out
Smoke a fag, put it out
See our friends, see the sights
Feel alright

Are we like you?
I can't be sure
Of the scene, as she turns
We are strange, in our worlds

But we are young, we get by
Can't go mad, ain't got time
Sleep around if we like
But we're alright

Got some cash, bought some wheels
Took it out, through some fields
Lost controls, hit a wall
But we're alright

Are we like you?
I can't be sure
Of the scene, as she turns
We are strange, in our worlds

But we are young, we run green
Keep our teeth nice and clean
See our friends, see the sights
Feels alright

Are we like you?
I can't be sure
Of the scene, as she turns
We are strange, in our worlds

But we are young, we run green
Keep our teeth nice and clean
See our friends, see the sights
Feels alright

    General CommentI am young. I run green(i am assuming this refers to marijuana). I keep my teeth nice and clean. I see my friends. And the sights. I am not the most popular person in the world, but I am no dork. I am not happy or sad...just alright.

    i swear to god this sound could be about me. but it could probably be about everybody.

    General Commentoh and "lost control hit a wall, but we're alright!" is probably taken from the old idea that teens think they're invisible. It's true though

    General Commentjudgiing from the lyrics alone (haven't heard the song yet, sorry in advance) it looks like a sort of "1979" before there ever was a "1979" a glorious teen anthem.
