MGMT - Kids Lyrics

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

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

Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanting
To be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanting
To be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees wanting
To be haunted
Control yourself
Take only what you need from it
A family of trees

  12. Alberto Crescini

    I'm used to love MGMT, but it's the first time for me to see their songs' videos. They're both awesome and gross.

  13. Wander kid 9000

    It's funny that everyone on here care for the kid's wellbeing, while fucking up the planet.

  20. DBambina

  21. Lil_baddie_ 21

    I’m not hating but this creeped me out a lot and I realized I sang this song at my Winter concert in grade 4 ;~;

  22. Bluen copcop

    I think the story of this video is about a child that was victim of pedophilia because his mom was very irresponsible over him, and that's why he see everyone as monsters, because he remember what happened, also, when the video becomes an animation some of the draws are spirals, (the childs that suffered sexual abuse tend to draw spirals), there are hot dogs and pizza draws too (in the secret language inside the pedophilia world hot dog means boy,and pizza, girl, the hot dogs were show when the head of the boy explodes) at the end not even the singer could help him, and the child end up in a dark hole.
    I'm sorry for my english 😓

    This kid has ptsd

  35. Ignacio Diaz

    Parents: "we'll take that check now."

    Social Services: "and we'll take that kid now."

    Parents: "why tho?"

  36. Ana Rodz


  37. Luke M

    Shit the monsters caught me totally off-guard and I am not a child lol. Poor kid, what kind of ptsd does he have from this filming?

  44. Sonna Diaz

    Could you just imagine this kid at 13 clutching his chest waking up In a cold sweat from night terrors and doesn't know why. lol.

  45. Juan Silva

    If you like Melanie Martinez,but never seen this cover

    PS:yes it's her

  46. Ricky Davis

    I never watch the music video of this song hear it a lot never understood it now I watch the video very creepy lol

  47. Kristin Alder

    All of you worried about the trauma of the acting baby are ridiculous. He's probably running around a green screened room. I dunno what they're doing to make him scared, but it's most likely a lot more mild than the video. Lmao

  48. isabella playz

  61. Justin Verdon

    Fun fact: MGMT hates this song and this whole album

    Rank Rodent

    Friendly Airwick I don’t

    Justin Verdon

    But you’re listening to it 😕


    They don't hate it, they've just moved on to less conventional music. They have eclectic taste.

    Justin Verdon

    @Jugboy They refuse to play any songs live


    @Justin Verdon if I was touring around with new music, I'd be very careful not to let my backlog overshadow my current stuff

  62. Super Mark Power
