Code Of Silence
Grushecky/Springsteen
There's a code of silence,
that we don't dare speak
There's a wall between us
So high and so deep
We keep pretending that there's nothing wrong
And there's a code of silence that can't go wrong

Cause the truth's so elusive
So elusive you see
That it ain't enough baby,
To bridge the distance between you and me
Well, there's a list of grievance a hundred miles long
There's a code of silence and it can't go on

Well you walk with your eyes open,
but your lips they remain sealed
All the promises we made are broken
fearing the truth and feeling the fear
Now, I need to know now darlin', need to know what's going on

So come on, come on, come on, come on
come on, come on, come on

Well you walk with your eyes open, but your lips they remained sealed
All the promises we made are broken
With the truth fearing revealed
Now, I need to know now darlin', need to know what's going on

Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on

There's a code of silence, that we don't dare speak
There's a wall between us, so high and so deep
We keep pretending that there's nothing wrong
There's a code of silence, and it can't go on

And it can't go on, and it can't go on
And it can't go on, and it can't go on
