Song Description

Song is about someone close being take out before their eyes and the helplessness of feeling no voice, forced to join the silent conspiracy lost, enraged, crying out for change in the world.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this back in the early 90's with my co-writer Brian Seth Hurst and it was an expression of what was going on then in the world, but so many years later I re-discovered the demo of it and ironically it was the week before the Paris Attacks. It struck me of how prevalent this song still is today so I had to re-record it in a new way.

Lyrics

SHOUT

I just stood there lookin
and I said to myself
what a shame, such a shame,
whose to blame?

I just stood there
tryin hard not to see,
this could not happen to me,
so I joined the silent conspiracy,
lost, no voice, cost, no choice

SHOUT THROUGH THE SILENCE,
DAMN THE INDIFFERNCE, CRY
OUT TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE
YOU GOTTA SHOUT THROUGH THE
SILENCE DAMN THE INDIFFERENCE
CRY OUT TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE
BRING ABOUT A CHANGE, YEAH...

I just stood there lookin,
stuck in my fear,
as if I died in my tracks,
I lied, I denied,
the truth hits hard,
turned my back not to see,
till you were taken from me,
had to set the rage free
sad enough, mad enough to...

SHOUT THROUGH THE SILENCE,
DAMN THE INDIFFERNCE, CRY
OUT TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE
YOU GOTTA SHOUT THROUGH THE
SILENCE DAMN THE INDIFFERENCE
CRY OUT TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE..

When freedom's lost to one
it's lost to all, if no one speaks
up the innocent fall, a thousand voices
can bring down a wall it starts with one voice,
one voice for all, you gotta...

SHOUT THROUGH THE SILENCE,
DAMN THE INDIFFERNCE, CRY
OUT TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE
YOU GOTTA SHOUT THROUGH THE
SILENCE DAMN THE INDIFFERENCE
CRY OUT TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE..
