Silent Legacy

sung by Melissa Etheridge
YouTube Video, another YouTube Video or click Here

Why did you steal the matches  
From the one room motel?
 
Once they gave you answers

Now they give you hell

They will never understand

They wonder where did they go wrong

How could you be so selfish? 

Why can't you get along?


And as you pray in your darkness

For wings to set you free

You are bound to your silent legacy


You've seen it in the movies

And you've heard it on the street

Craving the affection

Your blood is full of heat

They don't listen to your reasons

As original as sin 

Deny all that you feel

And they will bring you home again


And as you pray in your darkness
For wings to set you free
You are bound to your silent legacy

Your body is alive

But no one told you what you'd feel

The empty aching hours

Trying to conceal

The natural progression

Is the coming of your age

But they cover it with shame

And turn it into rage


And as you pray in your darkness
For wings to set you free
You are bound to your silent legacy

You are digging for the answers

Until your fingers bleed
To satisfy the hunger

To satiate the need

They feed you on the guilt

To keep you humble keep you low

Some man and myth they made up

A thousand years ago


And as you pray in your darkness
For wings to set you free
You are bound to your silent legacy

Mothers tell your children
Be quick you must be strong

Life is full of wonder

Love is never wrong

Remember how they taught you

How much of it was fear

Refuse to hand it down

The legacy stops here


Oh my child. . .

“Nothing I did or said among the other boys came to me naturally. As a result, in every encounter, even the most glancing, I had to be a performer, for at all times I was aware I was impersonating a human being......I wanted to be sincere but I didn’t know how. I could find no method for it except when alone.”
A Boy's Own Story-A Novel by Edmund White-pages 188 and 189 in the paperback edition (1982/1994)
