Tonight’s Voices compilation featured track comes to us from the Cincinnati trio known as Northland Noise. These young musicians bring a sound that is part 90’s alternative, part blues, and part punk. The song that they provided for the compilation is rather unique in that it that it almost pleads with perpetrators of sexual crimes to really think about what they are doing before they do it. “I don’t care to wonder why, my only question is are you satisfied?”

I think the reason this song sticks out to me is because the compilation is filled with many things – pain, triumph, anger, heartbreak…but this is one of the only ones we see that is directed solely at the person who causes the anguish and heartache that we see throughout much of the rest of the album.

As we’ve been saying, this track along with all of the others we have featured are available on the Voices compilation, which is up for preorder now and will be for sale the first time at Speak Up Cincinnati on October 19th, 2013. Tickets for the event can also be purchased at our online store. If you can’t make it or don’t have the funds to attend the show purchase the CD now, you can still help by sharing these tracks and spreading the word!

Airing Our Dissent lyrics by Northland Noise

There’s nothing left for the in between
It’s swallowed up by the extreme
I don’t care to wonder why
My only question is
Are you satisfied?

In the heart of every heart of every child
There’s a gem that shines as pure as snow
But for every bank there is a heist
For every Ark there’s a Shiloh

So when you’ve stolen innocence
Prepare for a life sentence
Of ringing in your ear
Thanks to the voice of the innocent
Piercing the silence
Airing the dissent

In the mind of every bystander
Live senses tuned to catch the scent
Of trust broken of forgiveness
Being stretched to it’s bloody limits

So when you’ve stolen innocence
Prepare for a life sentence
Of ringing in your ear
Thanks to the voice of the innocent
Piercing the silence
Airing the dissent

The victims have borne the guilt
For far too long
It’s time to send it back
To where it belongs

So when you’ve stolen innocence
Prepare for a life sentence
Of ringing in your ear
Thanks to the voice of the innocent
Piercing the silence
Airing the dissent
