Trapped behind the door
No one can hear them now
So easy to ignore
So easy to keep down
Hopes and dreams assured
Now trampled on the ground
And all we give is maybe
Some day you’ll make it out

Don’t tell me to calm down
How could you know what it feels like, feels like
Don’t tell me to calm down
How could we know what it feels like, feels like

What they crying for?
Their tears we won’t allow
While we sob in the Dáil
Our history resounds
Shoulder to shoulder
Ireland’s call we answer proud
But when they’re screaming save me
Our silence speaks so loud

Don’t tell me to calm down
How could you know what it feels like, feels like
Don’t tell me to calm down
How could we know what it feels like, feels like

Don’t tell me to calm down
How could you know what it feels like, feels like
Don’t tell me to calm down
How could we know what it feels like, feels like

Don’t tell me to calm down
How could you know what it feels like, feels like
Don’t tell me to calm down
How could we know what it feels like, feels like
