"Silence Is The Enemy" as written by James Michael, Tobin Joseph Esperance and Jacoby Dakota Shaddix....
I know you wanted me to keep my mouth shut
Because you hate it when I speak my mind
I suffer through but it feels so messed up
Like my opinion is a waste of time
We never wanted it to be this way
They never listen to a word we say

So scream your heart out
You are the chosen
You got to show them
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
We are the broken
We got to show them
Silence is the enemy

You take your needles and sow my mouth shut
But you will never hear the last of me
This is the reason why we’re all so fucked up
You are the reason why we don’t believe
We never wanted it to be this way
They never listen to a word we say

So scream your heart out
You are the chosen
You got to show them
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
We are the broken
We got to show them
Silence is the enemy

Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy

You got to show them
Silence is the enemy

Scream your heart out
You are the chosen
You got to show them
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
We are the broken
We got to show them
Silence is the enemy

Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy
Scream it out loud
Silence is the enemy

    General Commentit's a kinda thing like that in a relationship or in a friendship he learn that you have to say what you have to say or what you feel even if everyone want not you to tell, and all you have to do to make em understand to show em is that the silence of someone will get the things worse and not better!

    General Commentnot to sound mean or offensive but this really makes me think of hardcore Christians [so obviously not each one of them] and how if you are non-Christian or opposed to Christianity that they don't want to hear it at all, that they would rather have you keep your mouth shut about what you do or don't believe in. I can relate to this because I know a lot of Christians but it seems like only one of them has made it clear that she isn't open to other religions or even accepting those who aren't religious at all; she also speaks her mind WAY too much, always supporting what the bible says, and if she hears anything that goes against the bible she freaks out on you, but I think that fact is hilarious anyway because she's divorced and guess what? that's one of the biggest sins in the bible [i'm not being preachy, it's just a true fact; i'm not even Christian]. but I think this song can really reflect us "non-religious" people, especially with the needles-sewing-mouth-shut, hate-it-when-speaking-mind, opinion-is-waste-of-time, and especially the line "this is the reason that we're all so fucked up, you are the reason that we don't believe"- I think this line is real good to use against Christianity because supposedly god is love and that means unconditional, accepting no matter what, yet most Christians have warped so many minds into believing that you do anything remotely against the bible that you're evil and condemned to hell and the hardcore Christians also tend to hate you for that to. I am pagan [and by the way paganism is the longest-known religion and Christianity was even built off paganism so they are hypocritical and narcissistic if they are opposed to pagans] and I know a lot of people who have been through divorce; I could honestly care less about that. I also have friends who are either bi- or homosexual and I love them unconditionally- their choice of lifestyle is not mine.

    so pretty much I see this song as a stand against hardcore Christians, and I don't care if you hate me for this either because SILENCE IS THE ENEMY!!
