She spent the night out with a guy
Who gives attention when she cries herself to sleep
I heard her say
So, she gives him what he wants
As long as he can make her feel okay
But she's not okay

We avoid the topics
We make the kids have secrets
When they are exposed
And everyone else knows
We'll say we never knew it
That they had a problem
'Cause if we would have known
We surely would have solved it
But we can't, it's too late
I said we can't, it's too late


He's skipping classes 'cause he hates them
And hopes he passes not to take them all again
I heard him say
He escapes them with the pills
The ones he takes to make him feel like he's okay
But he's not okay

God, You've got to save us
We hide behind the faces that we make to disguise
The things that we're ashamed of
And all the ugly things that make us close our eyes
They make us close our eyes
Why do we close our eyes?

    I think this song means that kids are afraid to tell other people what's going on. But really, if we paid attention, we could help. But instead we try to avoid things because it's easier then actually doing something. Even if it's the right thing to do. And also, people only pay attention when someone passes, and then it's way too late to do anything. This song is true and I listen to it when I'm upset, to be honest.
