Make that silent tongue scream fire and thunder

Make it scream
For voices silenced and oppressed
Make it scream rampaging banshee
Under a full moon sky

Make it scream
Make that silent tongue scream fire and thunder

Make it scream
For painted hands and burnt knees
Make it scream widow raped mother
On bloody December snow

Make it scream
Make that silent tongue scream fire and thunder

Make it scream
For Prairie erased and river damned away
Make it scream rabbit babe dying
In a wolf fang embrace

Make it scream
Make that silent tongue scream fire and thunder

Make it scream
For forests devoured to sawdust and stump
Make it scream psychotic chainsaw blade
Burning pine tree sap

Make it scream
Make that silent tongue scream fire and thunder

Make it scream
For lakes poisoned with uranium tailings
Make it scream cancerous slow death
Tearing away your face
