growing pains lyrics – devo

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

/ devo lyrics
