He was always such a nice boy
The quiet one
With good intentions
He was down for his brother
Respectful to his mother
A good boy
But good don't get attention
One kid with a promise
The brightest kid in school
He's not a fool
Reading books about science and smart stuff
It's not enough, no
Cause smart don't make you cool, whoa


He's not invisible anymore
With his Father's 9 and a broken fuse
Since he walked through that classroom door
He's all over primetime news


Mary's got the same size hands
As Marilyn Monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints
At Mann's Chinese Theater Show
She coulda been a movie star
Never got the chance to go that far
Her life was stole
Now we'll never know


No no no no oh


They were crying to the camera
Said he never fitted in
He wasn't welcomed
He showed up the parties
We was hanging in
Some guys putting him down
Bullying him round round
Now I wish I woulda talked to him
Gave him the time of day
Not turn away
If I woulda been the one to maybe go this far
He might have stayed at home
Playing angry chords on his guitar


He's not invisible anymore
With his baggy pants and his legs in chains
Since he walked through that classroom door
Everybody knows his name


Mary's got the same size hands (Oh)
As Marilyn Monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints (Ooh)
At Mann's Chinese Theater Show
She coulda been a movie star (She coulda been a movie star, oh)
Never got the chance to go that far
Her life was stole
Now we'll never know
(Now we'll never know, oh)


Greg was always getting net from 20 feet away (20 feet away)
He had a try out with the Sixers
Couldn't wait for Saturday (Saturday)
Now we're never gonna see him slam
Flying high as Kobe can
His life was stole (Stole)
Oh now we'll never know


Now we'll never never never know
Mmm now we'll never never never never know
Stole (Stole)
Oh whoa yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah


Mary's got the same size hands (Same size hands)
As Marilyn Monroe (Oh)
She put her fingers in the imprints
At Mann's Chinese Theater Show (She was gonna be a star)
She coulda been a movie star (Oh no)
Never got the chance to go that far (Never got the chance)
Her life was stole (Stole, stole)
Oh now we'll never know
(Now we'll never never know, no)


Greg was always getting net from 20 feet away (He had game, oh)
He had a try out with the Sixers
Couldn't wait for Saturday
Now we're never gonna see him slam (Never see him)
Flying high as Kobe can
His life was stole (Stole, oh)
Oh now we'll never know
(Now we'll never never know)


Oh no no no
Yeah their lives were stole
Now we'll never know
We were here together yesterday..

    WTF, I don't think anyone murdered Greg, are you crazy. It's obvious, he was good at basket, but he was bullied, and he took suicide.

    I love this song so much! I first saw it on a The Tribe video called gone astray-left and lost. I was struggling to find the song at first, but when i found it, i kept listening to it. This song was what made me decide to make an account on this site.

    This is what the story behind the song is:

    Mary: She is pretty, popular and talented but she gives guys the wrong impression and ends up pregnant (possibly the white kids child, but it ruins her chances of fame)

    White boy: Badly bullied for being a geek.Though he has a lot of knowledge, nobody sees it as a good thing. His father is abusing his mother, and one day he can't take anymore, so he kills himself

    Greg: Great at basketball and could've been very successful and famous. He had a lot of talent, and someone was jealous of him, so they murdered him.

    The message that the song is giving really is:: people with a lot of talent, aren't apreciated as well as they should be!
