Everyone around me's getting drunk
All we really want is just to grow up
We just want to be happy
But nothing's really working

This life is a cage and we're trapped inside
Pushing in on the bars, desperate for the outside
Deep down, I want to be like them
They do whatever pleases them

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
That's what they say
I'm just taking it day by day
But I'll always be yours, so don't be afraid

I'm tired of sleeping with the nightlight on
'Cause all the other kids don't have a line to step across
I want to run wild in the streets and cause a bit of trouble
I want to be broken like an empty vodka bottle

I only learn a lesson if I learn it the hard way
So give what you got and don't be sorry
But God forbid for me to leave and never return

There's something going awry in the bathroom
Never mind the smell, it's just what kids do
They were never happy
But they were always laughing

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
That's what they say
And I'm gonna cave in eventually
If I ruin my life, then that's on me

I'm tired of sleeping with the nightlight on
'Cause all the other kids don't have a line to step across
I want to run wild in the streets and cause a bit of trouble
I want to be broken like an empty vodka bottle

I only learn a lesson if I learn it the hard way
So give what you got and don't be sorry
But God forbid for me to leave and never return

I don't want you to worry 'bout me
I just want you to pray for me
I'll be okay
I'll be okay

I don't want you to worry 'bout me
I just want you to pray for me
I always bounce back, everybody knows that
I always bounce back, everybody knows that

I'm tired of sleeping with the nightlight on
'Cause all the other kids don't have a line to step across
I want to run wild in the streets and cause a bit of trouble
I want to be broken like an empty vodka bottle

I only learn a lesson if I learn it the hard way
So give what you got and don't be sorry
But God forbid for me to leave and never return
