American Silence

Album: American Silence (2020)
  • Will you rise up when your comfort is in jeopardy
    Will you resist justifying the complexity
    Is simplicity convenient in your quest to pacify
    When you look in the mirror, can you see your own disguise

    Can we sing a song for you
    Will music move your heart and mind
    Will our song arrest you
    American silence is a crime

    We see the music move you as you lay your burden down
    We feel the music grip you as your heart is soaked in sound
    And when the song is over, if you decide to clap aloud
    Will your applause mean anything with stitches on your mouth

    Can we sing a song for you
    Will music move your heart and mind
    Will our song arrest you
    American silence is a crime

    We sing for the freedom, we fight for all it's worth
    We sing for humanity so we can all walk the earth
    We sing with honor to let us sing another song
    We sing through the pain and we keep on marching on

    Can we sing a song for you
    Will music move your heart and mind
    Will our song arrest you
    American silence is a crime

    American silence
    American silence is a crime
