Fight The Silence

This is a song, from one of my favorite bands of all times, using their platform to bring awareness to the demoralizing and utterly reprehensible act that is human trafficking. If you can't get yourself to listen to it due to the genre of music it is, simply read the lyrics. It's quite beautiful in my eyes, and it's good to know that the battle to end human trafficking is reaching across so many mediums.



Eye to eye, face to face; but still, we don't see them, we look away. Still they cry, but no one is listening. When will we open our eyes? Open our eyes! This song we sing to silence the suffering. (When will we hear their cries?) This song we sing to silence the suffering. (When will we open our eyes?) So let the world listen closely as I scream to see the freedom they deserve. Let the world listen closely! I say it's time to cross the lines our culture's blurred.

Preying on poverty, they keep us uninformed and distracted. If they can't fight for themselves, we'll fight for them. It's time to fight the silence!

Broken, abused, and exploited for the sick satisfaction of selfish men. Only a coward would try to ignore it. We can raise our voice and bring it to an end. FIght! Fight! Fight the silence! Set the captives free! Fight! Fight! Fight the silence! They're a slave to a system of apathy. Bought and sold--their right to life has been taken away. Bought and sold--(let's) bring an end to slavery. Open our eyes!

This song we sing to silence the suffering. (When will we hear their cries?) This song we sing to silence the suffering. (When will we open our eyes?) This song we sing to silence the suffering. (When will we hear their cries?) This song we sing to silence the suffering. (When will we open our eyes?) Their fate is in our hands. Will they be left there to suffer, or will somebody take a stand against a system that's been designed to deny it's victims their right to life? Let's set the captives free!

When all is said and done, we'll see justice come. It's time to fight the silence. The voice of the voiceless. (Fight the silence) We are the hope for the hopeless. (Fight the silence) Fight! Fight! Fight the silence! It's time to fight!
