Don't know what's gotten into you
Must be something in your genes
About this time I was crazy, too
And most times in between

But I survived to live another day
I might have learned a trick or two
So just remember when your old and your gray
Some of what I taught to you

Stay alive inside, don't be a stranger
Keep a line open to the folks back home
Don't run and hide when everything changes
Walk between the raindrops dry as a bone

You're laying low, staying outta sight
Hanging out in your room
You're up all night by the monitor's light
And sleeping through the afternoon

Well, I won't tell you how you gotta be
You're old enough to make a choice
It's just that in between all the words on the screen
I doubt you'll ever hear a human voice

Stay alive inside, don't be a stranger
Keep a line open to the outside world
Don't run and hide when everything changes
Walk between the raindrops smooth as a pearl

You're at that age and you know it all
And you're not even hearing what I say
Knowing better never kept me outta trouble
I don't care I'm gonna tell you anyway

Stay alive inside, don't be a stranger
Keep a line open to the folks back home
Don't run and hide when everything changes
Walk between the raindrops dry as a bone

Stay alive inside, don't be a stranger
Keep a line open to the folks back home
Don't run and hide when everything changes
Walk between the raindrops dry as a bone
Walk between the raindrops dry as a bone
Walk between the raindrops dry as a bone
