lyrics

If I spoke up
After 40 years
Would it take away
What you’ve done
Would my life get any better
If you spent yours in jail

My father said
Do you have your legs
Do you have your arms
Then you will be okay
These words have kept me standing
And I’m still here

When I woke up
There were two of them
They held a knife
at my throat
They tied a necktie around my eyes
Then they took turns

My father said…

I don’t have the answers but
Something’s got to give
I want to break the silence
But we need something more

My father said…
My father said...
