Shake the hand of time
With the builders of stone
Are you recognized?
You're not going home

Have to find a hideaway
So turn up the neighbors
The eagle is listening today

It's not up to me
To change what has been done
It's not up to me
A speechless world looks on
It just has to be!
Silent nation

No longer have a name
A number will do
Cutting the wires of doom
Cause they're watching you

Raging in thought
Mouthless, the millions obey
So call off your dogs
You preachers of what we can say

It's not up to me
To change what has been done
It's not up to me
A speechless world looks on
It just has to be!
Silent nation
In a silent nation
We must change what has been done
It's a travesty
Silent nation

It's not up to me
To change what has been done
It's not up to me
A speechless world looks on
It just has to be!
In a silent?
