Lyrics

On Behalf of the Silenced

Written By: Aaron Simon

On behalf of the silenced lyrics:
Verse 1:
I sit in shock, but even more I sit in disgust/
the downfall of this world that I see is the greed and lust/
and trust, the evil that im seeing here is grimey/
the rain falls its the heavens looking at us crying/
and the lust, will thrust a man ridiculous places/
leaving traces of himself on a child making her faceless/
and the loss of face is making her faithless/
stripping her of her innocence and taking her greatness/
and the greed persuades you to make a profit/
at any means, anything to fill your pockets/
and any dream, anything thats going to stop its your enemy/
now her virginity is lost/

Chorus:
Can you hear her, screaming at the top of her lounges/
another night has come and she has yet to see the sun/
drowning in a sea of this violence/
listen to me as I speak for the silenced/
can you hear him, screaming at the top of his lounges/
another night has come, he has never seen the sun/
drowning in a sea of this violence/
listen to me as I speak on behalf of the silenced/

Verse 2:
Going to fight because its feeling infinite/
slavery hasn't ended its just manifested different/
sweatshops, youngins putting work in/
we've placed greater value on the soul of a shoe than the soul of a person/
nurse the soars, the war they speak of is literal/
im looking for the kids but I cant see because they're invisible/
critical conditions what I hear about is tragic/
this globe is backed up because its stuck in human traffic/
clever tactics matched with a hoax/
they'll seek the downtrodden then exploit the people with a lack of hope/
attacking those, change her to a number not a daughter/
this child has a mother, this child has a father/
dehumanize because the price is right/
look in her eyes what you see is lifeless/
fight this issue of the world, don't be fooled its the truth/
this happens in our on backyard too/
and im ashamed but I know where I should point the blame/
that serpent searching to distort the mental is the game/
I hear the voice of constance echoing within my brain/
we've got to own this if we EVER want to see a change/
apathy is killing us, a lack of education/
we've got to spark a flame to see a fire in these nations/
and if John Newton flipped than so can they/
so don't forget to pray, have a voice, and put the apathy away/

Chorus:
