Shackles and Shades (Walk for Freedom)


In the shadows of cities

Haunted shades lurk

In the corners

In the crowd

Eyes empty

Souls hungry

Hearts heavy

In a pit writhing with shame

They think they are to blame

For the sins of their imprisoners

The deeds of their oppressors

Oh my child you are an innocent!

Affected by the cruelty of the world

You were tortured by poverty and exploiters

You were hidden carefully in sight

The world has failed you

We have failed you

Oh dear tortured child!

For we are blind

We must open our eyes

To root out the evil

And save you

Oh how can we learn to see

That you exist

The tormented, the captive, the slave?

For every one of you

There is one who should shout

For every lost child

There should be ten that fight

For at least all of you

There should be those who call out

For each and every one of you

There should be countless walking out

We walk for your freedom

With our silence, we shout!

With our silent protest

We ask the free to call out!

I walk for each innocent tormented child

I WALK FOR FREEDOM
