Voices Break Silence.

Whispering. Roaring. Unwavering.

Tell It To The Lord

Another one down

Can you hear them now?

Too bad, so sad

Why did she think she could do that anyhow?

And the tears may fall

While they turn away

What they refuse to see

He knows intimately, he carried it that day

And we don’t need your

 patronizing

    unsurprising

        hollow words

And we don’t need you

 to pretend

    you understand

        what you’ve never had to learn

So tell it to the Lord

Keep a straight face

Explain why she deserved it

Explain why she’s a disgrace

Tell it to him

I’ll pull up a chair

Tell it to the one who died to save her

If you dare

You forget, sir,

He died for us too

He died for our scars

He died for our wounds

He died for the abuses

You’ve inflicted or ignored

It was he who bore them first

So tell it to the Lord

But no, sir,

We’re not going home

Because you see, sir,

Though we limp for now we do not walk alone

So, go ahead, sir, and look the other way

Look away from his daughters

If there’s anything to say

Tell it to the Lord

Keep a straight face

Explain why she deserved it

Explain why she’s a disgrace

Tell it to him

I’ll pull up a chair

Tell it to the one who died to save her

If you dare
