We like to watch you laughing/ Picking insects off of plants/ No time to think of consequences

“KIDS”

Written by Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser

You were a child
Crawling on your knees toward it
Making momma so proud
But your voice was too loud
We like to watch you laughing
Picking insects off of plants
No time to think of consequences

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted

The water is warm
But it’s sending me shivers
A baby is born
Crying out for attention
The memories fade
Like looking through a fogged mirror
Decision to decisions are made and not bought
But I thought this wouldn’t hurt a lot
I guess not

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanted to be haunted

  1. Great lyrics. Especially the last bit:

    Decision to decisions are made and not bought
    But I thought this wouldn’t hurt a lot
    I guess not

    Freakin genius. 😀
