Song Of Choice (Solas)

Early every year, seeds are growing Unseen, unheard, they lie beneath the ground Would you know before the leaves are showing That with weeds all your garden will abound? If you close your eyes, stop your ears Hold your mouth, how can you know? The seeds you cannot see may not be there The seeds you cannot hear may never grow In January you've still got the choice You can cut the weeds before they start to bud If you leave them to grow higher, they'll silence your voice And in December you may pay with your blood Close your eyes, stop your ears Close your mouth and take it slow Let others take the lead and you bring up the rear And later you can say you didn't know Everyday another vulture takes flight There's another danger born every morning In the darkness of your blindness the beast will learn to bite How can you fight if you can't recognize a warning? Close your eyes, stop your ears Close your mouth and then you know Let others take the lead and you bring up the rear And later you can say you didn't know Today you may earn a living wage Tomorrow you may be on the dole Though there's millions going hungry, you needn't disengage For it's them, not you, that's fallen in the hole It's alright for you if you run with the pack It's alright if you agree with all they do If the fascist's party slowly climbing back It's not here yet, so what's it got to do with you? The weeds are all around us and they're growing It will soon be too late for the knife If you leave them on the wind that around the world is blowing You may pay for your silence with your life Close your eyes, stop your ears Close your mouth, they're never there And if it happens here, they'll never come for you Because they'll know you really didn't care
