Lyrics:

Hush my darling
don’t be sad
I know the world is big and bad
and the people in charge are the devil reincarnate
you think that they’re done they’ve barely even started

Hearts
will break
like plates
they quake
but as long as you stand for something we’ll be proud
unless you stand for hate, then sit back down

Patience, honey
hold on tight
If you have your tongue you have your fight
and the nails you chew are stuck between your teeth
they fuel the fire underneath your seat

And hearts
will mend
like seams
like hems
but as long as you stand for something we’ll be proud
unless you stand for hate, then sit back down

Hearts
can go cold
grasping
for gold (greedy little hands)
but as long as your stand for something we'll be proud
unless you stand for hate, then sit back down.
unless you stand for hate
then sit your ass back down.
