Hey hey hey, I wanna say
Got pretty scared the other day
Five-year old son refused to eat his spinach
Didn't care if I played cop
Rebellion made my heart stop
Shoved it down his throat to make him finish

Not to worry, not to fear
He won't be the same next year
We're molding our son til the day we die
Molding our son
Clay spine, clay mind

Hey hey hey, I wanna say
Got a phone call the other day
Fifteen-year old was forging tests in school
Didn't care if I played cop
Rebellion made my heart stop
We don't want a leader but a tool

Hey hey hey I wanna say
Broke down and cried the other day
25-year old son's a nazi skin
Question should we have played cop
We just gave him love nonstop
What in God's name went wrong with him?

It's alright, it's ok
Hundreds are being born each day
They keep on molding their sons
Clay spine, clay mind, my mind...

We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
