Lyrics

CODE OF SILENCE
KERRY PATRICK CLARK, FRANK DILALLO

Just an ordinary day not much different from the rest
Except for those in 7th grade or who remember will attest
There always is a Tommy from the wrong side of the tracks
Or whatever their name may be always running late for class

I don’t remember their three names oh yeah but everybody knew
You just stay away hope their gaze (rage) don’t fall on you
Then Tommy hit the boy’s room at the final morning bell
Don’t be late for home room nobody sees nobody tells

CHORUS
Stick to the code, rules of the road
Nobody knows who, where or when
Stick to the code, rules of the road
Everybody knows the code of silence

Man I felt so bad, I think everybody did
Truthfully I’m glad it happened to some other kid
We never did see Tommy someone said he moved away
I remember all the comments who’s to blame I would not say

CHORUS
Stick to the code, rules of the road
Nobody knows who, where or when
Stick to the code, rules of the road
Everybody knows the code of silence

I wish I apologized yeah I always thought I should
Or if I went back in time I’d change things if I could
Since we only have this moment and I never will forget
I write to remember to treat others with respect

CHORUS
Let that be code, rules of the road
Everybody knows who, where and when
Rewrite to the cold, rules of the road
Nobody knows the code of silence
