lyrics

thought conceived
a voice is heard

a thought conceived
a word is born
a voice is heard
the silence torn

arising from a crowded heart
shaping its surrounding
could light a flame, a fire start
could bring us together or tear us apart

the power of words
written, spoken, heard
severely underrated

the power of words
written, spoken, heard
the impact on the world

as we chatter in ignorance
like swinging a loaded gun
are we aware of the outcome?

do you know how many fires you started?
do you know how many feelings you’ve hurt?
are you aware your words will be remembered?
are you able to perceive the alert?

would you fly a plane without a licence?
would you shoot a gun into the dark?
sometimes a better choice is silence
to dampen the attempting spark

and did you know
what you sow is what you'll reap
what’s in your heart your mouth will speak
a powerful weapon – the cause of strife
as well as the peace convention

the doctor, the killer both handle the knife
the difference lies in the intention

use your words for inspiration
for comfort and support
use words for restoration
for faith and reward

do you know how many fires you started?
do you know how many feelings you’ve hurt?
are you aware your words will be remembered?
are you able to perceive the alert?

defy gossip, envy and rage
silence the cynic inside

slander belongs to olden age
let your words be purified

spoken words made the earth
the Living Word us saved
as It became flesh and blood
unchained the world enslaved
