Lyrics

THE SILENCE OF MY FRIENDS
(Toronzo Cannon, Cannonball Express Music admin. by Small Scale Music, ASCAP)

Backbiters and haters talk behind my back
And you sit there while they attack
Maybe you agre/or don't know what to do,
But when your back is turned they’ll talk the same about you

I like it when people can get along,
Like understanding words to a song
When you know the truth you can’t pretend
I don’t like the silence of my friends

You talk about women like pieces of meat
You think I should laugh but I can’t agree
Wait a minute brother don’t go no further
What if I said that about your mother?

I like it when people can get along
Like understanding words to my song
When you know the truth you can’t pretend
I don’t like the silence of my friends.

Don’t sit and act like you don’t know
Your silence helps evil grow
You kill evil at the root
‘Cause people will do what you let ‘em do

They say all lives matter between me and you
But when look closely it don’t seem true
So we protest to say what’s on our minds
While you sit there quiet on the sideline

I like it when people can get along
Like understanding words to my song
When you know the truth and can’t pretend
I don't like the silence of my friends

I don’t like the silence of my friends
I don’t like the silence of my friends
I don’t like the silence of my friends
If you say you’re my friend you better speak up right now
