Treasure Island

Silenced Enforced


Living in a state of fear
I won’t take this shit no more
What have we done with a war that can’t be won?

This can’t be real
We’ve gone from pride to shame
We’re all to blame
You can’t change the state of the nation
How far will we take this?
It’s easy to see through the fakeness

Now that I’m here I can’t say a word
I can’t say how much I love you
I feel so alone without you
But that’s OK; I for one won’t take this any more

But who’s left to stop the bleeding
Remember my name during the revolution
Living with the media and government controlling everything
Are you blind can’t you see what they’re doing

These eyes have seen no conviction
Just lies and more contradiction
Ignorance and understanding
Out of step for what we believe in

We’ve gone too far
We’re hopelessly blissful and blind
We want it all with no sacrifice
I won’t allow what has begun to tear me down

Believe me now, we have no choice left
With our backs against the wall
How can we succeed, taking what we don’t need?
Telling lies, selling all the hate we breed

All we need is something true to believe in

We will fall!

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
