Dissenter

And there is something to say
For saying nothing
Until you know what it is
And understand it

But itís becoming a joke
Youíre saying nothing
Itís like you know what it is
But still deny it.

And there is too much to face
There are too many demands
Take everything that you know
And play it backwards

Whether you like it or not
Whether youíre for or against
If you say nothing at all
Youíre saying please go ahead.

And your silence will not buy you anonymity
And your weakness wonít excuse it, your complicity.

And nobody will forgive you, there is no defence
When there's nothing left to live for
Itís too late to dissent.

Your time is almost over now
(Over now, over now
nothing left to talk about
over now, over now
over your pretty head and out.)
