Women's March: MILCK and the unofficial anthem, 'Quiet'




“Quiet”
Written by MILCK and AG
Produced by AG

put on your face

know your place
shut up and smile
don’t spread your legs
I could do that

But no one knows me no one ever will
if I don’t say something, if I just lie still
Would I be that monster, scare them all away
If I let the-em hear what I have to say

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I can’t keep quiet
For anyone
Anymore

Cuz no one knows me no one ever will
if I don’t say something, take that dry blue pill
they may see that monster, they may run away
But I have to do this, do it anyway
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh I can’t keep quiet

Let it out Let it out
Let it out now
There’ll be someone who understands 
Let it out Let it out
Let it out now
Must be someone who’ll understand 
Let it out Let it out
Let it out now
There’ll be someone who understands
Let it out Let it out
Let it out now

I can’t keep quiet

The song has a story. Read it here, and visit the website #ICANTKEEPQUIET.


Listen to women from around the nation who sang this song together for the first time at the Women's March in Washington, DC. 



What can't you keep quiet about? Be the voice of that, proudly.
