Mum's the Word

Everybody knows about it
but still there is a great silence
no matter how they’ve found it
they know, but deny it’s a kind of violence

mum’s the word, deep inside it hurts
living alone in a world built on lies
remember where you heard it first
the only place for truth is behind lies

everybody knew this day would come
but kept on acting indifferently
when the day came, it surprised some
but they closed their eyes and didn’t see

mum’s the word, deep inside it hurts
living alone in a world built on lies
remember where you heard it first
the only place for truth is behind lies

it was just another day in the city
after the deed with capital D was done
in a stressful city, there’s no time for pity
and it's not suitable to share a human bond

mum’s the word, deep inside it hurts
living alone in a world built on lies
remember where you heard it first
the only place for truth is behind lies

sadly, only the occurrence awakened the world
humankind never works preventively per se
everyone's relying on somebody else to do the work
but in reality it doesn’t work that way...

Mum’s the word, deep inside it hurts
living alone in a world built on lies
remember where you heard it first
the only place for truth is behind lies

mum’s the word
mum’s the word
have you heard?
mum’s the word...
