Lyrics

Hear Them Out

You can’t say those things out loud
That’s not what free speech is for
This is a tolerant nation
We’ll savage your reputation
You can’t say those things out loud anymore

Ride the zeitgeist if you can
Judgement falls with a heavy hand
And don’t pretend you don’t have doubts
Just hear them out
Don’t shout them down
Hear them out

You can’t say those things out loud
That’s not what freedom is for
This is a righteous nation
We’ll silence your agitation
You can’t say those things out loud anymore

Fear will poison the debate
Fear is what leads us to hate
Don’t be afraid of your own doubts
Just hear them out
Don’t shout them down
Hear them out

You can bury the seeds
Bury them deep
But they don’t go away
And they don’t go to sleep
The roots will start to writhe
The shoots will start to rise
And before you know it
You’ve got a riot
Of flowers and vines
Under your feet

Hear them out
Don’t shout them down
Hear them out
Don’t be afraid to
Hear them out
