LYRIC

[Verse 1]
Don't let it out
If you hold it in only truth will come from your mouth
And I wear these scars
Like badges, like ribbons, like, "Hey this is who we are"

The tide told me if you cross this bridge it will lead you to the sea
But all that's left is land
It's hard to believe but these books say we are sinking

[Chorus]
And in the basements we saw
That God didn't care
They let our friends be pushed so deep beyond any repair
And if it's a heavy hope, you better hold it close
And don't ever let it go

[Verse 2]
So now take all you know
And show it to the kids who need it the most
With 40 percent oppressed and taking lives that were never spent

[Chorus]
And in the basements we saw
That God didn't care
They put our friends down in a world far from fair
And if it's a heavy hope, you better hold it close
And don't ever let it go

[Bridge]
All the maps ever drawn are slipping through the lines like decaying songs
Everything always changes
The tide
These scars
These suicides
The lack of rights and the basement nights

[Chorus]
'Cause in the basements we saw that God didn't care
They let our friends be pushed so deep beyond any repair
And if it's a heavy hope, you better hold it close
Until the day you let it all go

[Outro]
And so now, let it out
'Cause if you hold it in only lies will come from your mouth
