lyrics

Minute of Silence

I watch the news in mute;
I watch but I don't see a smile.
I cannot identify all the reasons why
We swallow every single lie

I can't put an end to the violence
I can't grant your mother asylum
But I can spare one minute of silence
I can't put an end to the violence
I can't grant your mother asylum

What will they write this time
About our leader's latest crime?
Another scapegoat stands in line,
Designed to reisgn
For another soon forgotten headline.

That won't put an end to the violence
And won't grant our used asylum
But we can spare one minute of silence
It won't put an end to the violence
It won't grant your child asylum
But let's all spare one minute of silence

Oh ooh

Eyes so blind and minds so cold
Making holes in their own souls
'cause they don't know, no
They don't know
That every dying child is their own

I can't put an end to the violence
I can't grant your mother asylum
But I can spare one minute of silence
It won't put an end to the violence
It won't grant our used asylum
But we can spare one minute of silence
It won't put an end to the violence
It won't grant your child asylum
But let's all spare one minute of silence

It won't put an end to the violence,
It won't put an end to the violence...

But I can spare one minute long
