Lyrics

Bold= Nico


Eight years old and he’s kicking and screaming



“I’ll only go to school if you give me a reason



The kids are really mean and I already know all the things


they’re teaching”


You take things so hard



And then you fall apart


Showing up late but he makes it to class



Just to stare out the window and the clock in the back



He daydreamed away to a sky so gray



Everything’s simple, it’s driving him mental


Those cry baby tears



Come out of the dark


Someone's turning the handle



To the faucet in your eyes



You're pouring out



Where everyone can see


He does all that he should

Why is he misunderstood?


This is a story bout a broken boy



With his headphones in just to block out the noise


Cry baby, cry baby


So you laugh through your tears


Wondering if it gets better



Or if he’s always gonna feel empty forever



So he gets lost tryna find another way back home



As he walks the world alone


You just let them drown



Cry baby, Cry baby


Fifteen years and he’s drowning his sorrows



Smoking weed, drinking cheap liquor out the bottle



With a bunch of fake friends cuz he tried to fit in but it wasn’t working


You told yourself that



It's not you, it's them


Don’t you know nobody will ever understand



The person that you are, learn to hold your own hand



Get your shit together and lose the weight



You’ll never be what you want, no not with that face


But those cry baby tears



Keep coming back again


Someone's turning the handle



To the faucet in your eyes



You're pouring out



Where everyone can see


He does all that he should

Why is he misunderstood?


This is a story bout a broken boy



With his headphones in just to block out the noise


Cry baby, cry baby


So you laugh through your tears


Wondering if it gets better



Or if he’s always gonna feel empty forever



So he gets lost tryna find another way back home



As he walks the world alone


Cry baby, cry baby (alone)



You just let them drown



Cry baby, cry baby (alone)



You just let them drown


I look at you and



I see myself



And I know you better



Than anyone else


Who is he kidding, surely not himself



But sometimes he wonders if there’s somebody else



Thats takes the same road, but he’ll never know



Cuz he walks the world alone


This is a story bout a broken boy



With his headphones in just to block out the noise


Cry baby, cry baby


So you laugh through your tears


Wondering if it gets better



Or if he’s always gonna feel empty forever



So he gets lost tryna find another way back home



As he walks the world alone


Cry baby, cry baby (alone)



I just let them drown



Cry baby, cry baby (alone)



You just let them drown



They call you cry baby, cry baby (alone)



I just let them drown



Cry baby, cry baby (alone)



You just let them drown
