As Americans we've filled our minds with thousands of opinions
which have become rats in a cage
fighting it out inside our brains.
Americans have no inner silence,
only television news, the internet and the shouting;
shouting and confusion from every direction.
As Americans we are damned if we do not stop the noise,
we are damned if we do not sit down and listen in silencefor answers.
