Silence Ignorance Now, by Allison McCulloch Silence Ignorance Now  

   
1a:
First you didn't care what life would hold
What you were told
You knew there is falseness in order
No humility
No humanity
A power whose source is fear

1b:
Now your impressionable mind
Has been left behind
Because you've been struck with age
You desire no change
You desire no rage
But for others to be a complacent as you

chorus:
so we're falling
you're the current we're up against
Can't you see
What beauty in tragedy has meant
It's not peace you want
It's silence, it's ignorance now
Silence Ignorance Now

2a:
When I was young I hit a brick wall
I saw blood on my face and I was appalled
To find you were telling me I was free
To escape
From these chains
While you held the key in front of my face

2b:
There can't be perfection
But I want direction
So all is not in vain
But you condescend
And don't reach out your hand
Look down on us all in disdain
(Repeat chorus)
