Kids Don't Know Shit
Islands Lyrics


Lungs love holes
Escaping words you know
Smoke gets in your eyes
Still blowing in the wind
And we can't beat this cancer, can we?
Answer me

Kids don't know shit
Everything they've learned is wrong
Boys in the neighborhood are fit, they fight all night long
Kids don't know it, but everything they've touched is gone
Cause no one understands,
You can't stand under something that's all wrong
When you're facing the day
When you're wasting away
And you get lighter than your brain
And it grows tighter everyday
Love's lungs hold air to a blow a hole
Cold chest grows, fills up with smoke
At least your head is warm
Still forming ways to warm the baby, the baby's bed

Cause kids don't know shit
Everything they've learned is wrong
The girls on the block are listening in,
They sing, 'let's get strong'
Kids don't know it, but everything they've got is gone
We used it for some fuel and food
Then the rats took it from us and made a bomb

Words love holes
Getting lost in lies we know
Still believing branches weaving forests
Leaving helps them grow

Kids don't know shit
Everything we learned was wrong
Deep down we knew it,
We always knew it all along
Nebular splendor, I'll remember those constellations forever
A cursory person turns to me and says
'well, you won't live forever'
