Kooks, The - Kids Lyrics




Sitting in my room painting the world
And the kids are not alright
Good England thrown to the wolves
And the lunatics taking over
Heaven I found under my demons
And the smoking gun
That you found
Lying on the ground

I'm just sitting painting the world
And the kids are not alright

When I don't have a choice
That's when I find my voice
I'm not trying to be
What you want me to be
I'm not your friend I'm your queen
You're quickly losing your scene
I'm not trying to be what you want me to be

Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
The kids are not alright

Standing up in front of a mountain
And I don't want to fight
The clouds answer to no one
They don't need the sun
The streets are dark and the gas light leads me
Soon I'm out of sight
Howling back
Back at the moon

I'm just sitting painting the world
And the kids are not alright

When I don't have a choice
That's when I find my voice
I'm not trying to be
What you want me to be
I'm not your friend I'm your queen
You're quickly losing your scene
I'm not trying to be what you want me to be

Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
The kids are not alright

Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
Woah woah woah
The kids are not alright

Kooks, The Kids Comments
  1. TheRageMaker

    If you ugly as fuck, better learn the guitar

  2. AbrahamCloud

    Always magical

  3. Serclf s

    The Kooks were the queerest of Hobbits. Laden with strange clothing, and hardly indulging in second breakfast, Frodo needed not to know more.

  4. happeetrales

    The ducks a plont

  5. Matías Barreiro

    I wasn’t aware that Sam & Frodo started to play music after destroying the ring.

  6. TheGuffguffguffy

    Legendario

  7. Lottie Loulaa

    Fuck reminds me of too many great memories added up to a sick track to play x

  8. Tamires Nogueira

    They should drop that on Spotify

  9. adam jenkins

    chronic

  10. Clarke Fulkerson

    The intro sounds a little like the 70s hit 'Drivers Seat'

  11. Diego Inostroza Fuentealba

    lyrics? lol

  12. Connor Hutchinson

    What other song does that intro sound like...? It's doing my tits in

  13. cuentos y jugosos relatos de Jack el 12 pack

    Cool song

  14. Thomas Faulkner

    fuck me what a tuna

  15. Jason Karl

    I'm sorry to be negative but I have to be honest, this cover was atrocious.

    franz009franz

    you have no clue sir

  16. Carlo Castro-Zulueta

    Realizing what song this is from the guitar riff was like a kick in the face. The mixture of the low lighting, wood panel walls, the outfits(? costumes?,) their whole outward appearance tbh honestly, and the camera quality... I legitimately thought this was from the late 70's/early 80's until I choked on my cereal to scream THAT'S THE BWAP BWUP BWIP BWO-BWII BWI-BWIP BWAP BWUU SONG

  17. GinkgoPete

    Its kinda funny how MGMT and the Kooks together would be the 4 hobbits from LotR

    R S take a shotgun. Put the barrel in your mouth and use your big toe to slam lead into your brain and kill you and that piece of shit you call music.

  59. C.C. Monroe

    Luke is Good as a Pisces and Capricorn.

  60. C.C. Monroe

    I love both of your vocals.

    Orange Regeneration

    When I was 7 my aunty used to call her pussy 'the snitch', she would then rub it in front of me and say 'i'm rubbing my snitch, im rubbing my snitch' and she would laugh while doing it. It ruined my childhood.

  61. C.C. Monroe

    I love your vocals.

  62. C.C. Monroe

    More coffee for you. More catching spies who listen to our intimate conversations. Voyeurism is gross and often illegal. They leave. Peace. Romance with Luke way good, Good and Best vest.

  63. C.C. Monroe

    Luke Pritchard. Good.

  64. C.C. Monroe

    Feminism

  65. C.C. Monroe

    Unless you do not like vaginas. I am wife and have a vagina still. So sorry for not being dude.

  66. C.C. Monroe

    I actually am sorry for using you for mutual energy in my dreams. But you are nicer as a Capricorn or Saggitarius backup singer whose name I forgot. Luke, we should wait to have kids and just get married or practice.
