He was always such a nice boy
The quiet one with good intentions He was down with his brother, respectful to his mother A good boy
But good don't get attention 
One kid with the promise The brightest kid in school, he's not a fool Reading books 'bout science and smart stuff
It's not enough, no
'Cause smart don't make you cool

Well he's not invisible anymore
With his father's nine and a broken fuse Since he walked through that classroom door
He's all over prime time news

Mary's got the same size hands as Marilyn Monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints At Mann's Chinese Theatre Show
She could've been a movie star Never got the chance to go that far
Her life was stole Oh Oh, now we'll never know

They're crying to the camera Said he never fitted in, he wasn't welcome He'd show up to the parties we was hanging in
Some guys were putting him down, bullin' him 'round

Now I wish I would have talked to him
Gave him the time of day, not turn away

If I would've then it wouldn't maybe go this far
He'd might'a stayed at home playing angry  chords on his guitar 
He's not invisible anymore
With his baggy pants and his legs in chains Since he walked through that classroom door Everybody knows his name

Mary's got the same size hands as Marilyn Monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints At Mann's Chinese Theatre Show
She could've been a movie star Never got the chance to go that far
Her life was stole Oh Oh, now we'll never know

Greg was always getting net from 20 feet away
He had a tryout with the sixahs couldn't
wait for Saturday Now we're never gonna see him slam
Flyin' as high as Kobe can
His life was stole Oh! Oh! Now we'll never know

Ya their lives were stole Now we'll never know
We were here, all together yesterday
