Silence is shit
The Word Is A Bird Some say silence is golden But silence is shit ‘Cause words can hit But they can heal They can liberate us from what we feel ‘Cause mazwi acho akasimba Anogona kutibatsira kwatirikuenda ‘Cause words are warriors And their great gifts are glorious But politicians wanna sell us words that are worthless Creating a populace that’s wordless Throwing curse upon curse on the word’s carcass But the word is a bird and birds fly regardless Flying above the durawalls of their so-called silence The word still heard above their virile violence ‘Cause you can bomb the word but you can’t keep it silent (cc) Comrade Fatso 2007
