"Two Kids" lyrics - ANAIS MITCHELL

"Two Kids"

My daddy's house is the safest of houses
He sealed up the windows so no air gets in
And there's plenty of Campbell's, and beers in the basement
In case we can't get to the store or something
And my daddy told me some people hate us
They even hate me. I'm just a kid
And I asked how come, but he didn't answer
So I started thinking it was something I did

[Poem in Arabic]

I have a bed with a Superman blanket
And he's not afraid of the dark like me
Sometimes I can't fall asleep when I'm supposed to
I'm thinking about something I saw on TV
There was this house in a field full of houses
It was the bad guys living in there
And I saw this kid looking out from the window
He didn't look bad, he only looked scared
