Can you hear the silence,
As it rings through the land,
Blowing the leaves,
Disturbing the sand?
Do the voices reach your ears,
As they flow all around,
The tormented cries,
The ear splitting sound?
Do you feel their pain,
From the rash and the cruel.
Spitting out hated,
As they make the rules?
Do you just stand there,
Deaf to the screams,
Blind to the merciless,
The killers of dreams?
Are you deaf,
Or can you hear,
The cries, the tears,
Making up a melody,
In a song of silence.
