Children shooting up the neighborhood
Timmy feels misunderstood
bang bang
He's going on a rampage

Timmy, where'd you get a gun like that?
You probably stole them from your dad
What fun
A semi-automatic weapon

Lately, all the other kids at school
Treat you like you ain't cool
But you'll show them

Teachers, preachers, Mom and Dad
What that boy needed no one had
Nurture, nature, who's to say?
What makes a boy freak out that way
Thirst for blood in videos
Games and websites, TV shows
And no one saw and no one came
And no one wants to take the blame
And no one wants to feel the shame
They shrug and say he went insane
That's why I'm talking about

Children shooting up the neighborhood
They learn a lot from Hollywood
bang bang
He takes decisive action

Timmy, where'd you get a gun like that?
A birthday present from your dad
With love
A semi-automatic weapon

Lately, all the other kids at school
Treat you like a geeky fool
But you'll show them

Ripping wings off butterflies
Pulling tails and poking eyes
But no one saw the warning signs
That something dark lived in his mind
Nazi posters on his wall
But they don't bother Mom at all
She doesn't notice much these days
It's easier to look away
So much easier to look away

Junior just went mental
Now he's on TV
That's why I'm talking about

Children shooting up the neighborhood
Timmy feels misunderstood
bang bang
He's going on a rampage

Parents don't you know your kids at all?
Read the writing on the wall
Bang bang
You're bringing up a psycho, you're bringing up a psycho
I think you might be bringing up a psycho
Oh well, it's a beautiful day
G'night Mom, g'night Dad
Sweet dreams
