And she spoke words that would melt in your hands
And she spoke words of wisdom
To the basement people, to the basement
Many surprises await you
In the basement people, in the basement

You hid there last time, you know we're gonna find you
Sick in the carseat, cause you're not up to going
Out on the main streets, completing your mission
You hid there last time, you know we're gonna find you
Sick in the carseat, cause you're not up to going
Out on the main streets, completing your mission

And she spoke words that would melt in your hands
And she spoke words of wisdom
To the basement people, to the basement
Many surprises await you
In the basement people, in the basement

You hid there last time, you know we're gonna find you
Sick in the carseat, cause you're not up to going
Out on the main streets, completing your mission
You hid there last time, you know we're gonna find you
Sick in the carseat, cause you're not up to going
Out on the main streets, completing your mission

You hid there last time, you know we're gonna find you
Sick in the carseat, cause you're not up to going
Out on the main streets, completing your mission
You hid there last time, you know we're gonna find you
Sick in the carseat, cause you're not up to going
Out on the main streets, completing your mission

    The person that says its catchy but has no deep meaning is the one that is on crack. Songs can mean different things to different people so there is no right or wrong answer. That is what makes music an amazing form of art. You develop your own meaning and ideas based on your own experiences and past. Music can also convey other things like emotion that are also unique from person to person. I am on board with the idea that the song is about a guy that digs a girl but is too afraid to talk to her. Sounds logical.

    It's obviously about a toddler. Wisdom oft comes from the mouth of babes. If itshis daughter her words would melt in his hands. The basement is where she always hides, and many surprises are there for her to find. Oh and the carseat. Dead giveaway.

    I think this guy, martyn, likes this girl who "speaks word of wisdom", but he's too scared to talk to her/ask her out, so he hides in the basement. (maybe not literally, metaphoricly) the "many surprises" is either meant to be sarcasm, or it means it's great to be confident and outgoing.

    The "to the basement people" bit is his friends, who know where he's hiding and encourage him to talk to her. "being sick on the car seat" is him being sick with anxienty, and his "mission" is to talk to the girl.

    I think it's about a girl who's just trying to fit in, and that was her mission, and now she's realising that maybe it's not what she really wants but perhaps it's too late because she's trying to hide away (to hide in the basement, somewhere dark no one would find her) but people are still looking for her and they will find her (again, because obviously she tried to get away from the crowd before) and she's ill because she can't take it anymore, she's tired of being fake just to feel like she belongs in a crowd.

    I thought it was about a robber or something hiding in a basement where she was caught before and now the police have found her again and she's sick in the police car because she doesn't want to go back to jail. Maybe her mission was to rob a rich house?
