Oh, Sleeper – Let It Wave Lyrics

Let It Wave by Oh, Sleeper


A step in the heat’s worth 10 in the shade
I tell you son, you’ve gotta back up your claims
You’re walking the beat ‘tween damage and hate
But no one’s buying ’cause you dance all the same
It’s time to gut up, sever ties to comfort
You need to walk in the heat of their day

If all your heroes are martyrs
Shouldn’t you be the same?

This flag is more than a symbol
It means more than a song
I live to die in its shadow
Until that day I pierce the ground
And let it wave, let it wave
Let my banner dance in the wind and fade
Let it wave, let it wave
You’ll find my name on an empty grave

I can’t believe that after everything you asked for
Upon delivery you upturn your nose
Looking out like you deserve something more than failure
You know you gave up, don’t act like I don’t know
No sour soil spoiled you child
Just your chosen lack of drive to grow

If all your heroes are martyrs
Shouldn’t you be the same?
Shouldn’t you be the same?
Shouldn’t you be the same?

This flag is more than a symbol
It means more than a song
I live to die in its shadow
Until that day I pierce the ground
And let it wave
I pierce the ground
And let it wave, let it wave
Let my banner dance in the wind and fade
Let it wave, let it wave
No stories told from a flawless blade
So you’re gonna find my name on an empty grave
