1. Silence

From the recording Silence

In cart Not available Out of stock

A song for the times we are in.

Many people have remained silent in the face of wrongs and injustice, holding back from drawing unwanted attention and feeling reluctance to speak out and take action. However, if we don't act, it may be too late.

Lyrics © Jeff Patch

Silence paves the way to another bad day
Sirens howl their way down your motorways
And the tyrants shake their heads looking your way

You say it’s too soon

Another day, the drugged, the dreary unfeeling
Wind their way in the corridors where paint is peeling
They no longer smell the decay, or see the mouldy ceilings

It’s too soon
It’s too soon
It’s too soon
Until it’s too late

Injured, the lesions don’t heal they stay open
Stumbling, the walking wounded march on
In the direction taken by those who surrender

They said it’s too soon

Can you wake up, can you make the connection
Between what you see, what you feel and the oppression
And your silence, the tacit compliant acceptance

It’s too soon
It’s too soon
It’s too soon
Until it’s too late


I want to cry out and shout the words unexpected
I need to lash out before being bound and rejected
I have to break out from my own incarceration

Before it’s too late

Stand down, afraid to draw attention
With the mask on, the one that hides dejection
Another year gone and left no negative impression

It’s too late
It’s too late
It’s too late

Unless we do it soon
