  • Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are
    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are
    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are
    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are

    Withered hands, withered bodies
    Begging for salvation
    Deserted by the hand of gods
    Of their own creation
    Nations cry underneath decaying skies above
    You are guilty
    The punishment is death for all who live
    The punishment is death for all who live

    Out of the silent planet
    Dreams of decimation
    Out of the silent planet
    Come the demons of creation
    Out of the silent planet
    Dreams of decimation
    Out of the silent planet
    Come the demons of creation

    The killing fields, the grinding wheels
    Crushed by equilibrium
    Separate lives, no more disguise
    No more second chances
    Haggard wisdom spitting out the bitter taste of hate
    I accuse you
    Before you know the crime it's all too late
    Before you know the crime it's all too late

    Out of the silent planet
    Dreams of decimation
    Out of the silent planet
    Come the demons of creation
    Out of the silent planet
    Dreams of decimation
    Out of the silent planet
    Come the demons of creation

    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are
    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are

    Out of the silent planet
    Dreams of decimation
    Out of the silent planet
    Come the demons of creation
    Out of the silent planet
    Dreams of decimation
    Out of the silent planet
    Come the demons of creation

    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are
    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are
    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are
    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are
    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are
    Out of the silent planet
    Out of the silent planet we are Writer/s: Bruce Dickinson, Janick Gers, David Harris Stephen

  • Caitlin from Colmesneil, TxI think this song could be interpretted as being about man's destruction of the enviroment. "The Silent Planet" could refer to earth, in much the same way as in the book "Silent Spring", the earth will be silent when we poison it and kill off all the life, and that's exactly what we're headed towards.
  • Fay from Seattle, WaOut of the Silent Planet is the name of a science fiction book by C.S. Lewis. The silent planet refers to Earth, which has isolated itself from God and the rest of the universe, making it a desolate place.
