You spend so much time in silence That it scares you Like the dark– You try to fill it with words and song Clicks and tics, Anything That will drown it out Like running through the house Turning on all the lights
I would that you would want me Want me more than your ego Would allow you hide Want me more than your reticence
Shut your mouth! Don’t you dare speak! Don’t you dare/ utter a peep. You might hurt someone, With those powerful words Speaking the truth According to you Speaking your mind Representing yourself Come/ on And shut all up And censor yourself.
Dark brown eyes Staring deep into my soul Asking me questions I dare not answer
odds are you and me would never be we and i’m at odds with wanting it so
if i wasn’t exactly what you thought of me or what you thought I’d be would you still love me?
The bark of guns Fade into the background So part of the dark outside That silence Scares the tough shell courage From his adolescent body
