I pushed the breather up against the wall
Because those who breathe, tend to speak
What they say, tends to elicit a response
Right this moment, I crave silence.
Born in the aftermath of hate
With no regard for the life they made
Pushed to the boundaries at
Every single fucking turn.
I’ve gotten up and failed again
Reached for what I thought was life
It turned out to be the darkness of death
And here I go on my way to fail again.
Now hush, you have nothing to say
That doesn’t help anything
Keep that opinion to yourself
Because trust me
And nobody wants to hear it.
Don’t tell her you love her
If you can’t make her feel it without speaking
Then it isn’t true.
We look for the truth in life
Through talking and speech
When what we really should be doing
Is standing in silence.
