Napalm Death - Silence Is Deafening Lyrics




Rant long and loud
Repeat 'til you're blue in the face
Ever get the feeling you're always on a losing streak?

Their silence is deafening
From the havens of thieves and kings

Empower those who serve to deflect suspicious minds
Action and answers as likely as a reversal of time

Their silence is deafening
From the retreats of tamed apologists
Their disdain is crippling
For those whose crises they have fixed

I am your "untermensch" - a trace of filth to be scraped off
A trace of filth to be scraped off

Yet when it's you who's in their debt
The strong-arm brings you to your knees
So much for "progressive authority"
A trace of filth to be scraped off

Power for the powerless - well, where?
Screaming at the wall to make more sense...

... I melt back into indifference

The silence is deafening
The silence is deafening
The silence is deafening

  19. Alex Pate

    This is what it looks like when the music you created is too heavy to figure out how to move to it

  20. Hugh Betcha

    The left wing view of the world comes from the same tribe that finance and instigate war. De-program yourself while you still can

    Críostóir Mac Gabhann

    What are you on about?, there are some good Left wing ideas and some good Right wing ideas. Besides everyone is brainwashed by Capitalism, Leftists wouldn't want to finance any private industry, never mind the war economy.

    Hugh Betcha

    @Críostóir Mac Gabhann capitalism and communism were invented to control the cattle. Nothing more.

    i like how barney looks actually mad.

    Owen Grizzly

    That's the thing I love about this band. The pure rage they put into there music.

  37. Artax1978

    Best riff in the history of metal, period. (3:00)

    Artax1978

    @VEKTOR1999 Maybe it isn't metal, strictly speaking, but in this case I feel it's truly a metal riff (the rest of the song is really more grindcore, indeed).

    Vann Jonquin

    Yeah its good as fuck.. they tour with EHG soon.

    Resident Evil Dead Space

    @Artax1978 DON'T LISTEN THIS DUMBASS, GRINDCORE IS METAL, GRINDCORE IS SUBGENRE OF METAL JUST LIKE METALCORE AND DEATHCORE

    Resident Evil Dead Space

    @VEKTOR1999 WIKIPEDIA: Grindcore is an extreme fusion genre of heavy metal and hardcore punk that originated in the mid-1980s, drawing inspiration from abrasive-sounding musical styles, such as: thrashcore,[3][4] crust punk,[1] hardcore punk, extreme metal, and industrial. Grindcore is characterized by a noise-filled sound that uses heavily distorted, down-tuned guitars.

  38. sabine teller

    great musik !

  39. Kevin Lamons

    Been a fan since HC. 3 things. When it comes to metal, the Brits know how to bring it. ND will never ever sell their souls to the music industry. This played live, I wonder how many mangled and broken bodies are pulled out of the pit? True legends and masters of their craft.

  40. MIGEL GLORIA

    I love this song!PURE RAGE!

  41. Bleak Forecast

    The breakdown at the end is the stuff of nightmares. Absolutely terrifying.

  68. Mephalus No More

    Silence is Deafening. That's why they had to add a sign language interpreter in their video. Because their music has side effects, all leading to becoming fucking deaf xD

  69. doktormilton manson666
