lyrics

Nobody told when you were young
Why you don't want to stare into the sun
Nobody told you, not even for fun
Not to look down a loaded gun

And you didn't think about it, no you didn't think at all
About how the sausage is made
And nobody told you and you didn't think at all
About how the product is saved

So you took a bite of plastic wrap
And you winced and you grinned, then snuck the helping back

Nobody mentioned while it was relevant
That you shouldn't go crawling in the vents
Nobody mentioned, as it seemed self-evident
That you shouldn't touch the heating element

And you didn't think about it, no you didn't think at all
About where you were placing your hand
And nobody told you and you didn't think at all
About the inferno of the frying pan

So you belted out a terrifying scream
And Mom, ice in hand, came rushing to the scene

-------

Nobody thought to say what they too wondered one day
That you should not drink from a biday
Nobody thought to voice what you never considered a choice
That Nana's funeral is not the time to rejoice

And you didn't think about it, no you didn't think at all
About the humiliation of an argument loss
And nobody told you and you didn't think at all
About the consequences of an overhand toss

So you stare at the wall with a sour look
And you admit you love your brother, despite all that you took

-------
