OFFSPRING - The Kids Aren't Alright Lyrics

When we were young the future was so bright (whoa)
the whole neighborhood was so alive (whoa)
and every kid on the whole damn street (whoa)
was gonna make it big and not be beat.

now the neighborhood's cracked and torn (whoa)
the kids are grown up but their lives are worn (whoa)
how can one little street
swallow so many lives

Chances blown
nothing's free
longing for
what used to be
still it's home
hard to see
fragile lives
shattered dreams

Jamie had a chance, well she really did
Instead she dropped out and had a couple of kids
Mark still lives at home cause he's got no job
Just plays guitar, smokes a lot of pot

Jay commited suicide
Brandon OD'd and died
What the hell is going on?
Cruellest dream, reality
