Lyrics

[Intro]
Keep your lips sealed
Keep your, keep your lips sealed
Keep your lips sealed
Keep your-
Hush child, hush child
Keep your lips sealed
Keep your, keep your lips sealed
Keep your lips sealed
Keep your-
Hush child, hush child

[Verse 1]
There's a boy in the classroom
Always does what he's asked to, following the class rules
I know he's in the bathroom
With his sleeves pulled down and the zipper pulled high
Kids snickering in the hallway
Dealing with it all day, fuck what they all say
I know why you're different, different
I know what goes down inside your kitchen, kitchen

[Pre-Chorus]
I know you've been hiding something
Mama tell you you should hush it, hush it
I know why you're distant, distant
I know what goes down inside your kitchen, kitchen

[Chorus]
Hush child, hush child
Seal up them loose lips
I know you're craving another glue stick
Why is it so hard to let the truth come out? Mmm
Don't speak, don't speak, cover up your bruises
That's what they say when they feed you a glue stick
Why is it so hard to let the truth come out? Mmm

[Post-Chorus 1]
Keep your lips sealed
Keep your, keep your lips sealed
Keep your lips sealed
Keep your-
Hush child, hush child
Keep your lips sealed
Keep your, keep your lips sealed
Hush child

[Verse 2]
You know you don't have to
Be so quiet when someone asks you
Why you're in a bad mood
Why your sleeves pulled down and the zipper pulled high

[Pre-Chorus]
I-I-I know you've hiding something
Mama tell you you should hush it, hush it
I know why you're distant, distant
I know what goes down inside your kitchen, kitchen

[Chorus]
Hush child, hush child, seal up them loose lips
I know you're craving another glue stick
Why is it so hard to let the truth come out? Mmm
Don't speak, don't speak, cover up your bruises
That's what they say when they feed you a glue stick
Why is it so hard to let the truth come out? Mmm

[Post-Chorus 2]
Keep your lips sealed
Hush child, hush child
Keep your lips sealed
Mhm, mhm, mhm (Hush child)
Keep your lips sealed
Keep, keep your lips sealed
Keep your lips sealed
Keep your lips sealed
Keep, keep your lips sealed
Keep, keep your lips sealed
Hush child

[Chorus]
Hush child, hush child, seal up them loose lips
I know you're craving another glue stick
Why is it so hard to let the truth come out? Mmm
Don't speak, don't speak, cover up your bruises
That's what they say when they feed you a glue stick
Why is it so hard to let the truth come out? Mmm

[Post-Chorus 3]
Hush child, hush child
Hush child, hush child, hush child
Why is it so hard to let the truth come out? Mmm
Don't speak, don't speak, cover up your bruises
That's what they say when they feed you a glue stick
Why is it so hard to let the truth come out? Mmm

[Outro]
Hush child, hush child
Seal up them loose lips, mhm
I know you're craving a glue stick, mhm
