Kimya Dawson – Hold My Hand lyrics
Once i knew a little girl who refused to eat
She just banged her head against the floor and didn't sleep for a week
Both of her parents were mentally delayed and they
Lived in constant fear that their daughter would be taken away
So instead of getting help they just pretended
That everything was okay
So i called the social worker and said "something is wrong"
She said "you know how she turns into a brat
When she doesn't get what she wants
I'll call ya later when i'm done playing with my dogs"

Sometimes the world is dark and cold
And no matter what i'm told
I'm scared and i'm alone and i'm five years old
Will you hold my hand?

Once i knew a little guy runny nose and bruises on his thighs
And i said "hey, what happened here?"
He looked at me and said "well my dad he hates me"
So i called the social worker confidentially and she called his mom
And said "guess who thinks your husband is beating up your son?"
Next thing i knew that family packed up and they were gone

Back pressed flat against the wall
And they hit me with a ball
Pretend it didn't hurt at all
Will you hold my hand?

Maybe i'll call oprah there must be something she can do
I'll say "i'm fat and i'm black and i'm sick of seeing little kids feel blue"
And me and oprah we will fix c.p.s.
And make sure the people working with kids have bigger hearts than the rest
And if you wanna have a baby you'll hafta pass a test

It sucks when for a little kid living means lying
And the only place you feel safe is pretending your flying
And you'd rather be caught dead than be caught crying
Will you hold my hand?

Abuse and neglect are highly contagious so
I called that social worker up and i said "hey lady you're outrageous"
She said "smarty-pants, you want a gold star?" i said
"no i wanna bash your head in with a crowbar, but
The cycle of violence has to end somewhere"

Come and take a swim with me
We'll wait underwater patiently
For the output of endorphins as we're swallowed by the sea
Will you hold my hand?
Will you hold my hand?
Will you hold my hand?
