Don’t say a word

You know they lie

The system is blurred

And so we fight

Don’t say a word

You know they lie

They pulled it out of you

A story with no truth

Over your head

They get up in your face

Tell you you’ll be safe

If you say what they said

Don’t say a word

You know they lie

Family get hurt

And so we fight

No shred of evidence

Victim of circumstance

Put you away

How do they sleep at night

Knowing it’s not right

They know that they made you say

Don’t say a word

You know they lie

Their power is learned

And so we fight

No alibi so they say what they like

Confuse, distort and deceive

You see it’s the law using their last straw

Tell me who they gonna believe

Don’t say a word

You know they lie

what have we learned

You know they lie

Just like bad dream

You know they lie

While millions have seen

You know they lie

A life locked away

You know they lie

We hope and we pray
