THE KIDS AREN'T ALRIGHT LYRICS

Stuck in the jetwash
Bad trip I couldn’t get off
And maybe I bit off more than I could chew
And overhead of the aqua blue

Fall to your knees bring on the rapture
Blessed be the boys time can’t capture
On film or between the sheets
I always fall from your window to the pitch black streets

And with the black banners raised as the crooked smiles fade
Former heroes who quit too late
Who just wanna fill up the trophy case again

And in the end
I’d do it all again
I think you’re my best friend
Don’t you know that the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright
I’ll be yours
When it rains it pours
Stay thirsty like before
Don’t you know that the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright

I’m not passive but aggressive
Take note, it’s not impressive
Empty your sadness
Like you’re dumping your purse on my bedroom floor
We put your curse in reverse

And it’s our time now if you want to to be
Maul the world like the carnival bears set free
And your love is anemic and I can’t believe
That you couldn’t see it coming from me

And I still feel that rush in my veins
It twists my head just a bit to think
And the people in those old photographs I’ve seen are dead

And in the end
I’d do it all again
I think you’re my best friend
Don’t you know that the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright
I’ll be yours
When it rains it pours
Stay thirsty like before
Don’t you know that the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright

And sometimes I just want to sit around and gaze at my shoes
And let your dirty sadness fill me up just like a balloon

And in the end
I’d do it all again
I think you’re my best friend
Don’t you know that the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright
I’ll be yours
When it rains it pours
Stay thirsty like before
Don’t you know that the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright

The F-14 Tomcat, arguably history’s single most iconic fighter jet was likely to leave you stranded alongside the highway, embarrassingly thumbing your way to the Danger Zone. Remember that scene in Top Gun in which Maverick flies through Iceman’s jetwash, causing his own engines to stall out? Well, that scene wasn’t just a bunch of Hollywood balderdash hyped up for dramatic effect – it was a fairly accurate representation of a major design flaw of the F-14.
