He waits every evening outside schoolyard gates
Dealing death whoever wants to pay
Hide your tears, act much older than your years
Can't you see it's building up this way?
Just another kid gone astray

Hey momma, did you know just where your baby's gone
Do you know she walks the streets at night (that's right)
Emergency, but you can't believe just what you see
Read the news, it happens every day
Just another kid gone astray

Don't bite the helping hand
That reaches out to understand
We all need a little time
To put the reason to the rhyme
Everybody has their day
But sooner or later we're all gonna stray
Gone astray

Just like a loaded gun
Finger on the trigger and having fun
Nobody's gonna stand in my way

Don't lose touch
Slip through my hands and out of reach
Come on back, we'll work it out someway (oh yeah)

The stakes are high
But you can't gamble with your life
Can't you see, I need you here today
Just another kid gone astray

Don't bite the helping hand
That reaches out to understand
We all need a little time
To put the reason to the rhyme
Everybody has their day
But sooner or later we're all gonna stray
Gone astray

Don't bite the helping hand
That reaches out to understand
We all need a little time
To put the reason to the rhyme
Everybody has their day
But sooner or later we're all gonna stray
Gone astray
