Devo – Growing Pains lyrics

So young so strong
Ignorance is bliss
Thin skin caught up again
In a place like this

Big people set the trap for you
Using you-know-what for brains
You're just another lab experiment
And you're easy to replace

Too much too soon
Sensors overload
Brought down, chased out of town
Another dangerous road

Simply a problem of biology
It's a choice you never make
The scene is set and you're subjected to
A lethal dose of growing pains

Think it through
Logic must be made for fools
Leave them now
And be a has-been who never was
They'll set you up with pains that grow
