You Will Never Silence Me

lie and dream, your bed’s full of hate and wasted time
cry and scream, you’ve got death and bloodshed on your mind
offer your deception like a prize
so every victim shares in your demise

your eyes refuse to see
what is meant to be will be
only truth will set you free
and you will never silence me
you’ll never silence me

tragedy, trapped behind a mirror telling lies
vanity, so willing to kill for your disguise
evolution didn’t count on you
nature will lie dead before your through

your fight begins again
your lies will never end
what is meant to be will be
and you will never silence me
you’ll never silence me

“And those who were beheaded for his namesake stood
 at Gods’ altar and cried out for justice.
 God said wait, just a time longer….... till the
 number of the gentiles is fulfilled”

authority, contemplating beyond your control
absurdity, pontificating madness fills your soul
point your finger damning without shame
your heaven and hell look just the same

you have no right to say
you’ll die if you don’t kneel and pray
the truth has always been free
and you will never silence me
you’ll never silence me

I think the original “offer” is best. It creates an image of hands holding out the “prize.” It also suggests deception, a kind of ingratiating smile, saying, “Go ahead, take it.”

An alternative would be “proffer.” It’s perhaps a better word, but maybe more suited to those smarty-pants liberal elite types than to the core audience for the raw meat you’re tossing out here.

I do like “Handing out deceit like a prize” BTW :) Good one Sandor!
But the image it conjures in my mind is of crowds of people gathering because they want it….....

how about ‘‘presenting your deception as a prize’’ ??? I mean presenting in the context , that youre presenting something , differently to how it really is , which might be a little closer to your intended meaning

Hey Tony,

Who is your audience for this song? If I’m interpreting it correctly (and I might not be), you seem to be railing against unbelievers and false prophets or something. This tends to provoke an instinctive defensive reaction in those you attack. They will never silence you, but rather than listen, they are more likely to stick their fingers in their ears and hum loudly to themselves until you stop. That’s just human nature. How about next time you take a less strident, more personal approach, focusing on what people might be missing out on? Touch our hearts. That’s what moves minds.

Having said that, these lyrics would probably lend themselves well to a heavy metal kind of treatment. Is that what you have in mind?

Oh my dear Gavin! You just hit right upon the beauty of it. It’s non-specific because it’s not so much a
rant as an observation. Everyone can universally agree that no philosophy or religion or form of
government should promote chaos and bloodshed, “evolution didn’t count on you”. The irony being
that “we” are the only known species capable of such. But from a believers’ perspective it still embraces
the notion that there must be something better. If ‘chaos and bloodshed’ are so obviously wrong then
what is the truth? It’s really a “don’t give up” and “voices still matter” song :)

Hey Tony,

Oooh , revolution against oppression! loud cry for justice…. well, I agree with Dennis “different but i liked it”…

but I don’t like this line “your lies will never end” It means evil, lies or oppression, lives forever.. So, I like to say instead of it:

“your lies someday will end” ..that’s my opinion.
