The Silence of the Lambs
Which side are you listening to?
They say love is weak as water.
They say rage is sharp as steel.
When you stand before the altar,
Which one will be revealed?
They say God ain’t playing favors,
When he makes his master plan.
Who will hear, and send a savior,
For the silence of the lambs?
Now, who’s the judge, and who’s the jury?
And will you take a stand
For the sound and for the fury,
Or the silence of the lambs?
Or the silence of the lambs.
They say war’s a filthy business.
That’s the way it needs to be.
Speak of peace, speak of forgiveness,
They won’t keep your people free.
But will they speak of seeking freedom,
When the blood is on their hands
Of the babes who lay a-sleepin’
In the silence of the lambs?
And when your ears are being opened
To the voices of the damned,
Know the truth is only spoken
In the silence of the lambs,
By the silence of the lambs.
