Words (from 6:30)

I will not let them take,
The spring out from my step.
Nor will I loose the voice of my friend.

I will carry my song so far inside my ear,
That you can melt me down and never find it.
Never hear.

I asked my father,
Will I be safe from this danger?
Avoid it,
He said,
And hung his head.

I asked my teacher and he said,
There is danger Luke,
In this war you wager.

A song, too loud to hear.
The melody an everlasting ringing in the ear.

And so I put it to you,
That those untrained in the power of sound,
Should not be employed by the government,
To make it.

It comes to a burning point,
A sound so loud it could kill,
A sound so strong it would hurt.
