My Silent Bravery 3

I often wonder why I sit and wait to die

What have I done to justify the sentence they gave?

Too many hours spent in darkness questioning…

“How and why”?

I can’t remember many moments in the light

This retribution has defiled me to no end

An execution without merit looms ahead

Tell me why!

I was a boy who had to live his own way

I never fit into the model they had designed

I chose a path less taken

I stood with others who had often felt the same

We got stares from passersby

Our dark attire seemed to frighten people away

And when the three young boys died

They pointed fingers and entangled us in a lie!

No hope in sight

[Chorus:]

I sit here terrified!

Can’t someone try to bring the truth to light?

Won’t anybody open up their eyes?

Before the three of us have lost our lives!

Why was everybody so damn afraid?

They blamed the devil for the heinousness of the crime

And to justify their own faith

We were labeled pawns of Satan for a time

The three of us were attacked and disgraced

For many hours we were questioned and someone lied

One of us couldn’t take it

His simple manner was manipulated in kind

Fear made him lie

[Chorus]

[Solo]

Now I am terrified!

Can’t someone try to bring the truth to light?

Won’t anybody open up their eyes?

Before the three of us have lost our lives!

And Why?

Can’t anybody see through their disguise?!

Only believe we didn’t take their lives!

And now the three of us have lost our lives

I often wonder why I sit and wait to die

What have I done to justify the sentence they gave?

Too many hours spent in darkness questioning

“How and why”?

I can’t remember many moments in the light

This retribution has defiled me to no end

An execution without merit looms ahead

Tell me why

My Silent Bravery Enough

(We don’t want them, we want everything)

(We’ve chosen to want everything)

We don’t want them, who want everything

We’ve stolen in this suffering

And we told them to want everything

But use caution in what you believe

And the haunted, deny everything

Controlling in this suffering

When they’re broken, and lost everything

They’re so much easier to lead

Take their hope away

Take their life away

Leave them nothing left inside

[Chorus:]

When your own have died

When there’s no more pride

When your soul is frozen

Is that enough?

When your heart is broken

A thousand times

With every moment

Is that enough?

(Without warning, we take everything)

Without warning, we take everything

Undaunted in this suffering

The dark forces surround everything

Make it impossible to see

Take their hope away

Take their life away

Leave them nothing left inside

[Chorus]

Haven’t they suffered enough

Haven’t we suffered enough

Haven’t they suffered enough, they’re damaged more than they can bear

Haven’t they suffered enough

Haven’t we suffered enough

Haven’t they suffered enough, they’re damaged more than they can bear

Did they even have a reason why

Countless sons and daughters had to die

Can you even comprehend the pain

Tell me when your…

[Chorus]

Own have died

When there’s no more pride

When your soul is frozen

Is that enough?

When your heart is broken

A thousand times

With every moment

Is that enough?

[Chorus]

When your own have died (own have died)

When there’s no more pride (no more pride)

When your soul is frozen

Is that enough? (is that enough?)

When your heart is broken

A thousand times (a thousand times)

With every moment

Is that enough?
