silence my dear by reuben woolley

6-ahed2 morning star
ahed

………….they said

don’t speak this land

don’t see

ahed

when your cousin
is shot

ahed

don’t move
when we slap you
don’t respond

……………………….& now
in chains

say nothing
if we should abuse you / we only
do our best

ahed

……………they said

don’t speak
