Sam Mitchinson – Kids In The Basement lyrics

My name is Shannon Matthews,
I love my mum very much.
She runs a parenting day-care centre,
So you had better get in touch.
When you want to go outside,
Make sure you look both ways.
But don't forget to look behind you,
You'll never see the light of day.

I hope the kids,
Are safe tonight,
Kiss your cheek;
And close your eyes.

You can find the kids in the basement,
All probably smoking hash.
And I'm really sorry your honor,
But I just needed the cash.
Can't we see what isn't shown to us?
Don't talk good and evil to me
Justice justice justice,
I just want some fucking JUSTICE.

I hope the kids,
Are safe tonight,
Kiss your cheek;
And close your eyes.
