Caution: You are now annotating this song as

There's a knock at your door
You don't even recognize the stranger
It's you from before

Tryin' to warn you all about the dangers
There's a hole in your head
At least that's what everybody's guessing
It's why you're always misread

It's why you sleep but you never feel rested
You never get your rest in


[Chorus]
Hold on to your heart
Hold it high above flood waters
Hold on to your heart
Never let nobody drag it under
Hold on to your heart
Even when your body's bitter
Hold on to your heeeaaarrrtt
Never let nobody take it over
Ever take it over
Ever take it over from you


There's a call on the phone
You don't even recognize the number
It's an old episode
Of trying to put the lightening on the monster
Of the life you have led
That is always a mess

Are you dreaming of death?
Are there ghosts in your chest?

Are you always so restless? Yes you are
Is that hard?

[Chorus]
Hold on to your heart
Hold it high above flood waters
Hold on to your heart
Never let nobody drag it under
Hold on to your heart
Even when the whole world's bitter
Hold on to your heeeaaarrrtt
Never let nobody take it over
Ever take it over
Ever take it over
Ever take it over
Ever take it over
Ever take it over from you


Is it all a game
But bait and switch your brains
And follow your leaders to hell
Is it all the same vein of insane
As drinking from a poisoned well
And I need new skin for this old skeleton of mine
Cause this one that I'm in
Has let me down once again
Over time
And I need new skin for this old skeleton of mine
Cause this one that I'm in
Has let me down once again
Over time

[Chorus]
Hold on to your heart
Hold it high above flood waters
Hold on to your heart
Never let nobody drag it under
Hold on to your heart
Even when the whole world's bitter
Hold on to your heeeaaarrrtt
Never let nobody take it over
Ever take it over
Ever take it over
Ever take it over
Ever take it over
Ever take it over from you
