Vedi anche Soldato Manning.
They'll keep you in solitary confinement
For who knows for how long
It's the only way to keep you silent
But your silence is strong

They who are so skilled at torture
At terrorizing faith
Who striped your body naked
To degrade and humiliate

They who are so skilled at killing
Under the banner of peace
Who killed two million in Korea
And four million Vietnamese

They'll keep you in solitary confinement
For who knows for how long
It's the only way to keep you silent
But your silence is strong

They who rode through the Powder River
With the machine gun and the flame
Who shot Crazy Horse in prison
And stormed the Philippines

They who flew the air of the Condor
Where the Madres dared to talk
Who killed thousands in Santiago
You heard it's echoes in Iraq

They'll keep you in solitary confinement
For who knows for how long
It's the only way to keep you silent
But your silence is strong

They who would have you die in prison
And suffer this life through
They act not without reason,
They know there's other just like you

Who would push back against the killing
For some future greater good
Who would give of themselves, willing
As so many of us should.
