Blink 182 – Stay Together For The Kids lyrics

It's hard to wake up, when the shades have been pulled shut
This house is haunted, it's so pathetic, it makes no sense at all
I'm ripe with things to say, the words rot and fall away
What stupid poem could fix this home, I'd read it every day

So here's your holiday,
Hope you enjoy it this time, you gave it all away
It was mine, so when you're dead and gone,
Will you remember this night, twenty years now lost,
It's not right.

Their anger hurts my ears, been running strong for seven years
Rather than fix the problems, they never solve them, it makes no sense at all
I see them everyday, we get along so why can't they?
If this is what he wants, and this is what she wants, then why's there so much pain?

So here's your holiday,
Hope you enjoy it this time, you gave it all away.
It was mine, so when you're dead and gone,
Will you remember this night, twenty years now lost,
It's not right.

So here's your holiday,
Hope you enjoy it this time, you gave it all away.
It was mine, so when your dead and gone,
Will you remember this night, twenty years now lost,
It's not right
It's not right
It's not right
It's not right

    This song means alot to me b/c my parents told me that they were getting a divorce when I was 12. They never did. L8r my mom told me that it was b/c they were not going to make it hard on me and my little brother (who is now 13) so they aren't divorced. My dad sleeps in the guest bedroom every night while my moms in "their" room. They fight every day and even try to make me take sides. I'm leaving as soon as I'm done with high school (out of state college) and I plan to take my brother with me. It is so hard to hear him cry every night. This song is amazing.

    This song has a deep meaning to me. I know its about parental fighting and how the kid sees it.
    I take the meaning of the song to state that this kid sees the hate between his parents and doesn't understand why they stay together. Yet, as a teenager, he is in a relationshp and gets along great with his significant other. So, I think he basically saying that he is leaving his family and giving them a "holiday" alone and won't come back untill they solve their problems. This time was meant for him, but its not worth it when all he sees and hears hurts him. He gives it to them instead.

    This song really hits home for me because my mum and dad used to fight so much when I was like 9 but I thought they were just bitching, after they broke up my dad had this new chick in about two months later.
    It wasn't until I was 13 I learned, based on some accidental information, that my father was cheating on my mother. The other woman became my stepmother now three years later my father and stepmother are always yelling and screaming because he's cheating on her with some slut who was our family friend like four months ago.
    He thinks I'm oblivious to the whole thing but I know whats going on. I'm not stupid. I try to stay at my mother's house but she says I should see him; so I go out there and its fighting all day and night whenever they're around each other. I wanna leave but I have no where to go. I kind of need help. Ugh I hate this, I don't understand; they have so much time alone why can't they fight then. They always drag the kids into it and we always want out :( It depresses me.

    This song brings back so many bad memories. My parents divorced when I was 6 and it was really sad that my dad would quit being a pothead and my mom want a threesome. I feel sorry for anyone that has their parents divorced, it's just not fair. If your not completely sure you're always going to love each other, don't get married in the first place. I love this song and I hope you guys do to.

    In the holiday part, the kids are already grown ups, and there is no reason for the parents to stay together anymore, and the time for them to separate that's why it is a holiday for them.
    My mom and dad were never married because my dad has another woman, and it hurts,. Why just can't they marry for me?, but I realize that if they are married, still it wont work out, and I think it's better if they are not married than being together fighting, staying together for me but there is no love at all.
