Silent Genocide

lives will be lost, and children will die.
but in response our nation does nothing but lie.
a silent genocide with a country at stake,
how many more innocent lives will we take.
Until we realise who exactly is to blame,
should we bomb ourselves for the economic senctions that we've made?
stripping them of essentials and their primary basic needs,
just to get to one man and we wonder who's destroying the peace.


and this counties indigence, is no fault but out own
and the people are dying, to see one man overthrown


it wasnt how many bombs we dropped it was the places we targeted
their healthcare, their water, their power their food,...
their livelyhood.
stripping them of essentials and their primary basic needs,
just to get to one man and we wonder who's destroying the peace.


and this countries indigence, is no fault but our own
and the people are dying, to see one man overthrown
and the media spins us, a tangled web of lies
while we search for the truth
another child dies.


another child dies, adds to your death toll,
how many more, children must die
another child dies adds to your death toll,
how many more, bodies will lie
another child dies adds to your death toll,
how many more, children must die
another child dies adds to your death toll,
how long until......
we take away they're lives

    General CommentHoly CRAP! This band is awsome! I agree with you people! Freakin' Amazing Bass player, man... and everybody else too!
    Anyways, about the lyrics, it's pretty self-explanitory. They hate war, it is murder, lives shouldn't be taken for lives, and all that stuff. straightfoward lyrics. PBS!

    General CommentA very punk sound by the band on this song, I personally prefer the latest efforts (Volition) but the message for this song is great. I definitely agree with the message of opening your eyes and doing what is right.

    I can't figure out if the "one man" is the President of the USA or God. Either fit the lyrics I feel ... I personally feel that the first verse seems to lend itself towards God, but then the following verses more so towards the President.
