Lyrics:

No Excuse for Silence

What is this place?
Is it a makeshift hospital?
Once they go in
They're not seen again

But someone is smiling,
His life will be saved
One or two weeks
Is all that he'll have to wait

Blood sample taken
When I arrived at the jail
They don't give a damn for my health
What game are they playing?

Evidence mounting
Of an underground scheme
The making of money from organs
A crime against humanity, humanity

They are killed for their upright beliefs
In a most brutal way
The saddest thing is
That our governments have little to say, yeah, yeah

If you worked for the media
Would you be swayed
To not put pen to paper?
To keep your conscience at bay?
If it were a matter of conscience
Or being paid
Where would lie your allegiance?
Would you be led astray, be led astray?

They are killed for their upright beliefs
In a most brutal way
The saddest thing is
That our governments have little to say, yeah, yeah

They are killed for their upright beliefs
In a most brutal way
The saddest thing is
That our governments have little to say, yeah, yeah
