Dirty

The playground kids are all the same
They stick together for the game
As they grow up the friendships change
Insulting starts, it’s the teen age

(Oh-oh-oh)
Children!
(Oh-oh-oh)
Listen!

I’m down on my knees
Friends now enemies

I’m not looking pretty
Spat upon with hate and mockery
People wanna hurt and injure me
So now the kids are looking dirty
I get sick of trying
I’m worn out fighting prejudice
Wiping off those dirty offenses
So now the kids are looking dirty

The scars and scrapes don’t make them frail
Your words won’t put them down again
Inside they’re damaged but they’ll still
Show you that they don’t give a shuuuuuut (shit)

(Oh-oh-oh)
Children
(Oh-oh-oh)
Listen

I’m left standing here
Daring you to throw your stones

I’m not looking pretty
Spat upon with hate and mockery
People wanna hurt and injure me
So now the kids are looking dirty
I get sick of trying
I’m worn out fighting prejudice
Wiping off those dirty offenses
So now the kids are looking dirty (3x)

La-la-la
So we’re not looking pretty
Spat upon with hate and mockery
People wanna make us feel messy
CHILDREN!

We’re not looking pretty
Spat upon with hate and mockery
People wanna make us feel dirty
So now the kids are looking dirty
We get sick of trying
We’re worn out fighting prejudice
Wiping off those dirty offenses
So now the kids are looking dirty

Yes we’re looking dirty
But this will not bring us down
Messy children (2x)
Yes we’re looking dirty
But this will not bring us down
Messy children
