About the song (from Sylencer's Markus Johansson):

"Ac·qui·esce [ak-wee-es]

Verb: submit or comply silently or without protest

The more that something becomes common practice in a society, the easier it will be able to continue, and eventually go unnoticed. This song is a cry out against such behavior. It's time to wake up."
