Versuri Iskra - Prisoners of Conscience
Album: Iskra - Iskra
Remember those people who live inside cages Denied basic rights and no hope for parole. Prisoners who gave their lives for revolution Surrounded in silence, does anybody know? Their family is gone, their friends are dead Forced to concede they have no control. They’re given no respect, their dignity stripped Does anybody know? In moral innocence, will they die alone? will anybody know? They’d seen the sign of truth out there They let the people know of mindless terror everywhere does anybody know? A body bound,A body dragged Broken skin, broken bones Tortured inside a cement cell Where Nobody will know. A stolen life, a living hell Does anybody know? The Black Panthers, A.I.M, and MOVE Struggling for dignity, fighting racial oppression Black Liberation Army, FALN, and RATF Working towards autonomy, against imperialist expansion Earth Liberation Front, Animal Liberation Front Fighting to stop the continued destruction of life on this planet When a so-called democratic systems ignore the voices of conscience Direct action is the only recourse for developing opposition.

They’re in a cage this very night A life sentence or a death sentence. Their spirits live while their body’s bound Does anybody know? Everyone remember that they’re still there Everyone should know.
