"Bad Kidz" is a song by Marina and the Diamonds, released as a B-side for "Hollywood".


We came to an agreement in good health:
That if no-one would take care of us, we'd be fine by ourselves
It was time to cut the views
Of those who don't deserve our spit
Why is it that we crave the praise
From the people who least deserve it?

If you gave us a flower
We'd sit and we'd water it
But instead we watch you weave your web
And you wait for us to fly into it

You act like you're a strong ant
We all act like we're weak
If only you'd quit trying to cripple
Our dancing fee-ee-eet

(Give and forgive)

Bad kids
Bad kids
Slip through your hands like liquid
Bad kids
Bad kids
Vanish when you shut your eyelids
They'll vanish when you shut your eyelids

Thinking of it is painful
It's better to accept it all
Thinking of all the mothers and the daughters
And the fathers and the sons
Who are waiting for a call
That says, "I didn't mean it,
I love you for who you are.
Whether you make it in this sick industry or not;
You'll always be my special star."

He said,
"If I became a pretty flower
Would you sit and talk to me?
Oh my roots, my roots are getting old
And I'm getting, I'm getting, I'm getting lonely, lonely!"

I'd play Superman, I'd make you feel safe
So why are you disappointed?
Everything that I did for you means nothing
'Cause you turned out to be wicked

Bad kids
Bad kids
Vanish when you shut your eyelids
Bad kids
Bad kids
Slip off your skin like liquid
Yeah, they slip off your skin like liquid

I'm a tangled ball of string,
I'm a criminal, you're the victim
I am a cat, and you are the mouse
And I am the milkmaid that killed all the cows

Oh, am I the oil to stain your skin?
Am I the storm that sank your ship?
Or you are the horse, and I, the cart
But it's you, but it's you, but it's you
It's not me, it's not me, it's not me
That broke your heart

That broke your heart
That broke your heart
That broke your heart
