  • 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.
