Silence Is Golden Lyrics – Trash Boat

War with an enemy we can’t reach
So we turn our rage to the man on the street
No profit in unity
Our silence no longer speaks

Face it
You know you’re never gonna change it
From subliminal to blatant
Keeping you complacent or terrified

Fake it
I’d do anything to make it
All alone upon my throne it’s so close I can taste it

Push in and split the skin
Give in to sin

Obey
You should know by now
You can’t hold me down
Better watch your mouth
Or I’ll knock you out

Obey
You should know by now
We stand our ground
Better watch your mouth
One slip and they’ll snuff you out

You’re the first and last word
Who’s first and who’s third?
You took all their worth and the worst is unheard of
The puppets narrate the word of the day
They’re talking in circles, I need to think straight
So I followed the water up stream
And now I can’t hear myself think
The river moans the oceans woes, it never sleeps

Obey
You should know by now
You can’t hold me down
Better watch your mouth
Or I’ll knock you out

Obey
You should know by now
We stand our ground
Better watch your mouth
One slip and they’ll snuff you out

War with an enemy we can’t reach
So we turn our rage to the man on the street
We wait for compassion to overcome self interest
Far too patiently
We’re still slaves to a media driven binary
Because those that know know there’s no profit in unity
Our silence no longer speaks

Silence
Is golden
To those
Who control it

Obey
You should know by now
You can’t hold me down
Better watch your mouth
Or I’ll knock you out

Obey
You should know by now
We stand our ground
Better watch your mouth
One slip and they’ll snuff you out
