lyrics

Verse 1:
back from Atlanta saw Vu I think he's dying
--He got the Cancer in his liver lungs and his spine
--his two kids about the same age as mine
And every time i think of those girls i start crying

--so now I'm trying to shift my focus
Sipping on hibiscus tea with rose hips
A herbal remedy there's memories in a roach clip
Let me chill with this mix I made for this road trip

Every other night I fall asleep on the sofa
A weird looking white guy just like Sammy Sosa
Got old I suppose I even watch the Charlie roses
grays everywhere all in my ear and my nose hair

wish I was young again drinking chocolate Nehi
Now I'm up before the sun because I need a little me time
Up before my daughter sorta stressed about this refi
For every dope 90s group they'res 90 other mi phi

Mi's -- so could we please get off our own dicks
The kids are alright let them go and have their own shit
Holmes i got my own kids and I simply don't care
If they pay homage to my youth My jobs to focus on theirs

Hook
The kids are aight but the grown ups fucked
I say the kids are aight but the grown ups fucked
I say the kids are aight but the grown ups fucked
I say the kids are aight but the grown ups fucked

The kids are aight-right Right right right
The kids are aight-right Right right right
The kids are aight-right Right right right
The kids are aight-right Right right right

Verse 2:
I wear that shame like a plain Keith Harring tee
Faded like My tattoos which I view as embarrassing
I snapped at my kid today for acting like a know it all
And Now I feel like shit there's so much I don't know at all

I’m going to Qdoba bro and eating up my feelings
Meat stuffed in tortillas that's a recipe for healing
My pico de gallows humor kismet for this shallow human
buffalo sixty six my own Vincent Gallo movie

Dude he's that graffiti rock my brood is a needy flock
I tend to keep my distance 'cept for Christmas when I drink a lot
And maybe pop a tab---of antacid
The production sets the atmosphere it’s like and Ant Classic

All the old schools have been replaced by the new schools
And All the new professors second guessed by the old fools
I used to watch the Box plus I used to drive a box truck
I used to shuck and jive a phony pussy like a cock tucked

Which might just be a construct of time molding my memory
So now I just stand here and say nothing like I'm eric b
get my Marshawn Lynch on I'll disappear like Pynchon
I’m older and I'm chubby sort of schlubby like I'm Vince Vaughn

Hook
The kids are aight but the grown ups are fucked up
The kids are aight but the grown ups are fucked up
The kids are aight but the grown ups are fucked up
The kids are aight but the grown ups are fucked up

The kids are aight-right Right right right
The kids are aight-right Right right right
The kids are aight-right Right right right
The kids are aight-right The kids are aight
Verse 3:

Yo I'm so tired of muthafuckers
I hate the city hate the country hate the suburbs
I hate republicans and democrats and demagogs
I hate my bills hate my debt hate my deadend job

I hate our culture it's insulting hateful discourse
I hate the discord and the rap reviews at pitchfork
I hate the think piece the hot take and the bike lanes
I hate allergies my aching feet and migraines

Yeaaaaahhh. I hate I'm not as dope as skipp coon
I hate sounding bored and arrogant like Brit Hume
I hate apple I hate streaming I hate Spotify
Actually I'm lying i subscribed and that shits kinda fly

I hate portlandia and grown ups riding scooters
I hate foodies but I love some fucking food trucks
I hate cops killing black kids and rappers saying faggot
ayn rand disciples Atlas shrugged and dagny taggert

I hate whole foods and I hate you if you shop there
I hate the gap hate banana I hate rocawear
I hate you if you think that tip was better than phife
I Hate boomers I hate gen x but tie kids are alright
