Forever The Sickest Kids - Ritalin (Born In America) Lyrics

I was born in America but
I feel like I was raised on Mars
No matter how hard I try
I still feel like I'm an alien cause
I was taught at a private school
My parents were scared of what I'd do
If I were bullied
Would I one day snap and bring drugs and guns
To school

If I told you once I told you too many times
I've got a real short temper and I'm out of my mind
Should've been medicated when I was young
But my mom choose to pray instead of whoring me out

I can't shake the feeling that I'm falling apart
I know I've been told I've got fire in my heart
But the world it brings me down
I'm not sure how much more I can take

I see the light at the end of the tunnel
(I see the light at the end of the tunnel)
I see the light at the end of the tunnel
(I see the light at the end of the tunnel)

I was born in a hospital
And I'll die in a hospital bed
Alone and happy
Will my kids be there
Will they be too busy

You're as fickle as you've ever been
You'll be gone just as soon as the trend ends
I'll be playing
In front of 10 drunk fans god willing

Social media you know you're breaking my heart
I got a hundred thousand people telling me all their thoughts
It's not that I can't relate
I can't reply to each and every comment made
We're never good enough no matter how hard we try
There's always a better band, better song
Make up your mind, do you love us for who we are
Or our skinny jeans and tattooed arms

I see the light at the end of the tunnel
(I see the light at the end of the tunnel)
I see the light at the end of the tunnel
(I see the light at the end of the tunnel)
I see the light at the end of the tunnel
(Whoa, whoa, whoa oh)
I see the light at the end of the tunnel
(Whoa, whoa, whoa oh)

I was born in America
I will die in a hospital

I see the light at the end of the tunnel
(I was born in America)
I see the light at the end of the tunnel

I see the light at the end of the tunnel
(I see the light at the end of the tunnel)
I see the light at the end of the tunnel
(Whoa, whoa)

I was born in America
I will die in a hospital

(Don't let me go)
I was born in America
(Don't let me go)
I will die in a hospital

  1. Jeromy Lyon

    This song is like 60 secs 2 long 4 no reason lol

  2. omega name

  3. Rohan Ghosh Dastidar

    Like : Die in a hospital bed
    Dislike : Die in your sleep

  4. femme music

    A true ADHD jam

  5. Derps OfAmerica

    I've always wondered if the "do you love us for who we are or our skinny jeans and tattooed arms" meant "do you love us because we have tattooed arms" or "do you love us regardless of our tattooed arms" because I think it's the first one because a lot of people liked them because they were "angsty" and not because of the music or content. Does anyone actually know?

  6. gopher001

    is this song secretly about weed? just wondering

  7. Масло Масляное

    Justin Brisson yes, you're right in a way. They've said it before, always had it in their lyrics. Not everyone gets it to the full capacity that it was written for but now theyve decided to be more easy to read because of the way people are nowadays. Sorry to say.

  68. Austin Hilton

    "Do you loves for who we are, or our skinny jeans & tattooed arms" that was actually really legit song line. A question a lot of music fans need to ask themselves

  69. Lauren Ford

  79. Kanisha Lucille

    he's famous because he worked hard to get where he is and has a great fanbase that supports him.

  80. Legit Wonka

    But yet Justin B. can get famous off of repeating the same word over and over and over again.

  81. Monkī Dī Rufi

    Amazing album. ♥

  82. prankmasterstove

    They are the sickest. Forever.

  83. Ben Hope

    best lyric, so much similar to my life, my past, how i growd up, and how i see the world now that im older, god this guys are soooooooo fucking sick!!!! <3

  84. Sofia Domingos

    I love the song but i can't read the lyrics , it's away to fast

  85. Catelynn Marie

    this song speaks volumes to me. amazing

  86. Daniel Sanchez

    Too repetitive.

  87. alfonso marines

    that moment when the lyrics are useless because they move very fast:(

  88. Chris Period

    Strobe light, maybe?

  89. Chris Period

    You are not alone, Sir.

  90. Karianny Figueroa

    i think people are getting the wrong idea about private schools. just because you go to a private school does NOT mean you're rich, i use to go to private school but my mom could barley afford it along with the house & everything else. & just because you go to private school doesn't mean that the people there are nice & perfect, they're definitely just as bad as people in public school.

  91. Adam Mayhue

    This album might not sound exactly like their old stuff, but it wouldn't be any fun if they stayed the same, right? It would just be the same thing over and over again. They are still great, I'm pretty happy with this new album :)

  92. RecklessGeorge

    When the piano part came on, I thought they were playing the River Flows In You

  93. Bihyun Kim

    amazing !

  94. Kathleya Amanda

    the piano break is sooo good

  95. Dakota Kilgore

    Hey Fearless are you gonna put up Rebel

  96. 3Vampireviolet2

    Silly yet moving me gusta
