You can´t take this away You can´t take this -no This is the truth that we live with Locked in the shadow of an image Another day is marked A bright and shining scar How did we let it get Let it get this far?   Chorus We come in peace Against this violence Stand for what we believe Against this silence Say can´t you see Against this violence The possibilities   This is the truth that they don´t want you to hear Locked inside, locked outside with our fear Another grave is marked A bright shining star How did … Lyrics: „The Possibilities“ von Blackfire weiterlesen

Lyrics: „Silence is a weapon“ von Blackfire

A quiet lonely lesson Bitter taste bites The question There´s a hole in The night And nothing inside   Chorus: Silence is a weapon Violence is the message Take the time to listen Silence is a weapon Violence is the message Take the time to listen   While you turned to ashes Held the hands of Collateral damages The silence is screaming So why aren’t you Listening?   Silence is a weapon Violence is the message Take the time to listen Silence is a weapon Violence is the message Take the time to listen     Why must we live … Lyrics: „Silence is a weapon“ von Blackfire weiterlesen

Lyrics: „Context“ von Blackfire

So who can say “We don’t want to hear the bombs drop. Can you turn down the TV? So I can hear my thoughts.” (falling)   So who can say “Can you stop your screaming? I´m not done butchering. Give me your other leg so you will not stand again.”   So who can say “The past is past Live for today.” The wounds still open Did you think it would just go away? Where´s the context?

Overwhelming It´s getting hotter, harder to breathe Why should I calm down, I know I´ve been deceived Like oceans of regret, All these questions rise Will they drown with our mistakes or will they learn to fly? Chorus She said it’s over, overwhelming We´re past the breaking point The breaking point again It’s getting hotter, and harder to see Balancing contradictions, How much do we really need? Standing on the broken edges of apathy Occupied by your destruction Your waves crashing over me Chorus She said it’s over, overwhelming We´re past the breaking point The breaking point again She said … „Overwhelming“ von Blackfire weiterlesen

„NDN/Alien“ von Blackfire

NDN/Alien Words by Peter La Farge I´m an Indian I´m an alien I´m a stranger in this town. All the white men´s roads lead upward all ours lead us down. And the dark feuds flow around me the shadows thick as snow But I´ve got to keep on singing for the road knows where I go. Got to be somebody, Indian or not To be singin´ on the dark road and open up the lot. And you can fill up all your prisons, lock and bar the doors But for everyone you lock up, there´ll be a thousand more. Chorus … „NDN/Alien“ von Blackfire weiterlesen
