lyrics

You held your breath beneath the waves.

It’s the sound of silence that you craved.

As you rose to the surface gasping for air

You said, "Don’t you know.

Everything seems brighter from the grave."

They held our backs against the wall.

Not asking for much, but asking for more.

You told them to fuck off, and to take it all.

And said, "Don’t you know.

It’ll make it easier to walk."

You held my heart, though it seemed strange.

As we marched forth expecting change.

They turned to us, with fear in their eyes.

They said, "Don’t you know.

You live in this world, expected to lie."

We live in this world expected to compromise.
...
We live in this world together to compromise.
