Quiet Distress - Killswitch Engage

How many times, how many lies
Does it take to demonstrate?
To change the apathy that's ingrained
The screams. The cries. Behind the lies
The victim and the villainy, taking all your dignity

Quiet distress covers scars and bruises
Quiet distress leaves us lost and desperate

Night after night, search for the light.
Relive the fear and misery
Disguise the pain. The blood will wash away,
but the wounds still sing of your agony

Quiet distress covers scars and bruises
Quiet distress we can't afford indifference

Hearing screams and cries, over and over again
Wash the blood away, over and over again
The victim, over and over again.
Becomes the victor in the end

Quiet distress won't cover scars and bruises
Quiet distress leaves us lost and desperate
We can't afford indifference
