Have you ever been in a situation
Where you think you're doing the right thing
But it doesn't turn out like you expected

Straight from the headlines scary as sin
A midwest high school is where we begin
John is a hacker not scared to get in
And keep out of reach from his parents again
Cause he was a nuissance
Least that's what they said or they shouted when being abusive
But this wasn't typical
Cause most of the time the abuse he received had been physical
A healthy teenager, changed to the minimal
Eighty-five pounds on his frame made it pitiful
Alive in his mind, he nurtured a trust
Cause that was the only things they couldn't touch
He took up hacking to push away comatose
Pro at code, exploits, races, and overflows
He made new friends named Mike and Tim
Come to find out they were just like him

John's at school, on the clock waiting
Yet another weekday, the kind that he hated
Thinking about rootkits and hooking to start
The teacher walked by with the term's report cards
One more quarter, but this was a sight
Shocked 'cause his grades were the hex code for white
An F in each class means he wouldn't pass
His parents were certain of punishment for that
Terrified of going home and facing the facts
John, Mike, and Tim made a plan and it hatched
The school had an Oracle database saved
They would hack with a zero day to clear away grades
COMMIT on an UPDATE to setting straight As
The parents would never know then they'd be amazed
Thought about alternatives but they refused it
Tired of seeing John at school with new bruises

Next day at school, palms still sweating
Try to act cool, calm, and collected
Called to the office in 2nd bell class
The IDS logs had seen their attacks
Police came in with cuffs for arrest
Took them and booked them in front of the press
The D.A. and judge had to make an example
So they came down hard with the sentences handled
Mike went to court with terrified fears
Locked up in juvie for two more years
Tim pleaded out, he knew what the verdict is
Placed in a home under social services
Alone in a zone not a lot to share
Locked in and scared under foster care
He called John's parents, but they wouldn't speak
Cause John went missing at the end of last week
