This is a song I wrote about human trafficking. 70 percent of the iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/sile…) proceeds go to International justice Mission. I hope it provokes some change. – LukeD

SILENCE IS SHAMEFUL
little girl close your eyes
wear that dress look good tonight
little girl hold your breath
just sit back just relax
you are learning to count
to pay your debts
but no little girl should have to live like this

one million songs
one million wrongs
our silence is shameful
one million sounds
one million down
our silence is shameful

little girl your barely speak
you close your eyes but you never sleep
little girl you have done your best
with what you have your innocence
you are learning to count to pay your debts
but no human being should have to live like this

this is the way that the world turns
turns its back and we all learn the monster we have let inside
is feeding off innocent lives
sweep it under and tuck it in
we deal in flesh and trade in sin
when innocence in commodity
we pick our fruit while its still green.
