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 dont get attention
One kid with a promise
The brightest kid in school
Hes not a fool
Reading books about science and smart stuff
Its not enough, no
Cause smart dont make you cool, whoa

Hes not invisible anymore
With his fathers 9 and a broken fuse
Since he walked through that classroom door
Hes all over primetime news

Marys got the same size hands
As marilyn monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints
And danced chinese theater show
She coulda been a movie star
Never got the chance to go that far
Her life was stole
Now well never know

No no no no oh

They were crying to the camera
Said he never fitted in
He wasnt welcomed
He showed up the parties
We was hanging in
Some guys puttin 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

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

Marys got the same size hands (oh)
As marilyn monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints (ooh)
And danced 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 well never know
(now well never know, oh)

Greg was always getting net from 20 feet away (20 feet away)
He had a try out with the sixers
Couldnt wait for saturday (saturday)
Now were never gonna see him slam
Flying high as kobe can
His life was stole (stole)
Oh now well never know

Now well never never never know
Mmm now well never never never never know
Stole (stole)
Oh whoa yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Marys got the same size hands (same size hands)
As marilyn monroe (oh)
She put her fingers in the imprints
And danced 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 well never know
(now well 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
Couldnt wait for saturday
Now were never gonna see him slam (never see him)
Flying high as kobe can
His life was stole (stole, oh)
Oh now well never know
(now well never never know)

Oh no no no
Yeah their lives were stole

    This song is about a boy that was bullied around. And his mother was in an abusive relationship with his dad. And all of that made him to where he couldn't take it no more so he killed himself in the school bath room. And mary is the girl that heard the shot and found him. She took it hard because him and her went to manns chinese theater show(where you stick your hands in the imprints of stars.) where she had the same size hands as marilyn monroe. And she cared about him. And then she found out that she was pregnant and was going to be raising a kid by herself. And the only reason I know that is cause at the end when they show the big board it shows the boys painting then her baby's face. And then she put think befor you act!
    And Gary is a boy who had talented. And had a shot in the nba. And was killed over jelousy.
    That's what I got from the video.
