I won't be the one to say every thing's going to be alright
Even though I thought I caught you crying on the phone last night
And how can I say that I know what it's like
When there's nothing to believe in, there nobody listening?

We've seen it all before and the boy who lives next door
Who gains your trust and has his way
And all the bruises heal, but not the shame
Inflicted by this viciousness and everyone's to blame

It's a known injustice, it's a silent crime
That everyone pretends that they can't see
She already locked away the memories inside
And lives in a prison while he walks free

What kind of world have we become
Has everybody lost control?
Was there ever a time when anyone could feel safe
Wherever they go

Instead of living in fear suspecting everyone
Nobody wants to get involved
Sit and watch your neighbors die
Do you think that you're absolved?

It's a known injustice, it's a silent crime
That everyone pretends that they can't see
She already locked away the memories inside
And lives in a prison while he walks free

I think about it everyday and I don't think it's gonna change
I think about it everyday and I don't think it's gonna change

It's a known injustice, it's a silent crime
That everyone pretends that they can't see
She already locked away the memories inside
And lives in a prison while he walks free
