Lyrics Edit

[Intro]
Ah-ah-aaah, buh-buh-buh-buh
Ah-ah-aaah, buh-buh-buh-buh
Ah-ah-aaah, buh-buh-buh-buh
Buh-buh-buh-buh, buh-buh-buh, buh-buh-buh-buh

[Verse 1]
Murder lives forever and so does war
It's survival of the fittest
Rich against the poor
At the end of the day
It's a human trait
Hidden deep down inside of our DNA

[Hook 1]
You can crush my candy cane
But you'll never catch me cry
If you dangle that diploma and I dead you
Don't be surprised
I'm not the only one who
Finds it hard to understand
I'm not afraid of God
I am afraid of Man

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Is it running in our blood
Is it running in our veins
Is it running in our genes
Is it in our DNA
You think you're smarter than me
With all your bad poetry
Fuck all your ABC's
Alphabet boy

[Chorus 1]
I'm not a little kid now
Watch me get big now
How could we expect anything at all
We're just animals, still learning how to crawl

[Verse 2]
Apples aren't always
Appropriate apologies
Butterscotch and bubblegum drops
Are bittersweet to me
We laugh, we cry
Like babies in the night
Forever running wild
In the human race

[Hook 2]
You call me a child while you keep counting all your coins
But you're not my daddy and I'm not your dolly
And your dictionary's destroyed
I'm not the only one who finds it hard to understand
I'm not afraid of God
I'm afraid of Man

[Pre-Chorus 2]
You can see it on the news
You can watch it on TV
You can read it on your phone
You can say it's troubling
You think you're smarter than me
With all your bad poetry
Fuck all your ABC's
Alphabet boy

[Chorus 2]
I'm not a little kid now
Watch me get big now
How could we expect anything at all
We're just animals, still learning how to crawl
Underneath it all, we're just savages
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
You're the prince of the playground
Little alphabet boy

[Bridge]
All the hate coming out from a generation
(Alphabet boy, oh alphabet boy)
Who got everything, and nothing guided by temptation
Were we born to abuse, shoot a gun and run
(Alphabet boy, alphabet boy)
Or has something deep inside of us come undone?
Is it a human trait, or is it learned behavior
(My alphabet boy, ooh-ooh)
Are you killing for yourself, or killing for your savior?

[Chorus 2]
I'm not a little kid now
Watch me get big now
How could we expect anything at all
We're just animals, still learning how to crawl
Underneath it all, we're just savages
Hidden behind shirts, ties and marriages
You're the prince of the playground
Little alphabet boy

[Outro]
Ah-ah-aaah, buh-buh-buh-buh
Ah-ah-aaah, buh-buh-buh-buh
Ah-ah-aaah, buh-buh-buh-buh
Buh-buh-buh-buh, buh-buh-buh, buh-buh-buh-buh
Still just animals, learning how, yeah
Learning how to crawl
