Lyrics of "Silent Screams" by My Brother's Scars

HAVE WE ANY REASON

TO CONTINUE WITH THIS TREASON

WE HAVE TURNED OUR BACKS FOR FAR TOO LONG

WE IGNORE THE CRIES OF THE UNBORN
PRE-CHORUS

CAN YOU HEAR THE SILENT SCREAMS

CALLING OUT FROM THE WOMB

WE’VE LET THE PLACE OF LIFE

BECOME A LIVING TOMB
CHORUS

THEY ARE CALLING, CALLING OUT FOR HELP

*WILL YOU HEAR THEM

THEY ARE REACHING, REACHING FOR YOUR HAND

*WILL YOU LOVE THEM

LOVE THEM ENOUGH TO TAKE A STAND
VERSE 2

ARE WE SCARED OF PERCEPTION

DO WE DREAD THE GLANCING EYES

WHAT ARE WE SO AFRAID OF

HOW CAN WE STAND IDLY BY
PRE-CHORUS

CAN YOU HEAR THE SILENT SCREAMS

CALLING OUT FROM THE WOMB

WE’VE LET THE PLACE OF LIFE

BECOME A LIVING TOMB



CHORUS

THEY ARE CALLING, CALLING OUT FOR HELP

*WILL YOU HEAR THEM

THEY ARE REACHING, REACHING FOR YOUR HAND

*WILL YOU LOVE THEM

LOVE THEM ENOUGH TO TAKE A STAND
BRIDGE

AND THEY SAY WE HAVE NARROW MINDS

THEY SAY WE ARE TAKING AWAY RIGHTS

THEY FORGET THAT THERE’S

NO CHOICE FOR THE BABY WHO DIES
CHORUS

THEY ARE CALLING, CALLING OUT FOR

*THEY ARE REACHING OUT FOR’

THEY ARE CALLING, CALLING OUT FOR HELP

THEY ARE CALLING, CALLING OUT FOR HELP

*WILL YOU HEAR THEM

THEY ARE REACHING, REACHING FOR YOUR HAND

*WILL YOU LOVE THEM

LOVE THEM ENOUGH TO TAKE A STAND

My Brother's Scars band (pic from their myspace page)

My Brother's Scars is a Christian alternative rock band.Listen to the song on their MySpace Page at http://myspace.com/mybrothersscars

This is who they are: (also from their myspace page)

"My Brother’s Scars is a more than just a band. They are a ministry to those who are hurting and searching. They perform Alternative Rock with the message of Jesus Christ. They also lead powerful rock style praise & worship.

In the summer of 2005, founder and lead singer, Jeremy Barker had surgery to remove a melanoma from his shoulder. After surgery there was no cancer remaining and by the grace of God none has returned. What remained were scars. He realized how great it was to have this constant reminder of God's grace. Motivated by this new lease on life, Jeremy felt convicted to re-commit his life to God and to allow God to give his life eternal significance. As a result he and 3 of his brothers-in-law formed My Brother's Scars. The name refers to the scars left behind when we've been broken and healed by God. In all of our lives we've reached a place of brokenness and had to turn to God for His divine healing. Etched into our minds are the memories of how low we've been and how great God's mercy and grace were to bring us up out of these times. The band members have changed, but their calling has not.

The mission of MBS is to tell people about what God has done for them and to comfort others through difficult times of breaking, to tell those who have not found Jesus Christ about His loving sacrifice, and to compel those taking God's grace for granted to serve Him with all they have.

Jude 22, 23 "Be merciful to those who doubt; snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear-hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh."
