Everything that Catches my Attention

Keeping Secrets (by Rylan Hunter)

I don’t know but I been told
The lies you spread are getting old.
I don’t know but it’s been said
Your fear-based reign is nearly dead

Sound off
Sound off
The chains of hate.

He fought for freedom and your life
While in his face you waved a knife.
If you want to make it far,
Don’t tell the soldiers who you are.

Sound off
Don’t ask, don’t tell
Sound off
Made his life hell

He was just a weapon in your war
To me he meant a whole lot more.
He gave his life in foreign lands
And now his blood is on your hands.

Sound off
We know your game
Sound off
Increase the shame

Now his name is carved in stone
And I spend my nights alone.
In your world I had no part,
In his world I was his heart.

Sound off
Don’t ask, don’t tell
Sound off
Makes my life hell
