LYRIC

[Verse 1]
Time is all we have
I hope I have enough
Enough to show you love
Before my time is up
Before you wake the dead
Take a pause
Instead of deafening nonsense
Share silence
No violence today
[Chorus]
No violence
No violence
No violence today

No violence
No violence
No violence today

[Verse 2]
Like driving with the window down
All of this will disappear
I only have you now, you only have me here
And we can’t count on tomorrow night
Or wait for brighter light
I can hear you through my eyelids
Chère Silence
No violence today

[Chorus]
No violence
No violence
No violence today

No violence
No violence
No violence today

About "Ahimsa"

“Ahimsa” is the fifth song on Silberman’s 2017 album Impermanence.

The song’s title means “nonviolence,” as can be seen in the song’s chorus. This principle is a fundamental virtue in Indian religions (i.e. Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism). Silberman was influenced primarily by Buddhism in the making of this album. It is believed that transgressions of this principle result in Karmic consequences.

The song’s music video expands on the narrative. In it, we see first footage of blooming flowers. Stems rising, then blossoming. Then the footage shifts to footage of nuclear explosions. A parallel is drawn between the shapes of a blooming flower and a rising mushroom cloud.
