Silent Shouts

I tiptoe across the snow in hopes of waking no one

I speak out in silent shouts, the quieter the better

 

I’m losing the will to play with this chill

To let it all cave in on me

And I quit this game because it’s lame

And it is poisoning me

 

I bend myself to send my dearests on their journies

I hold on to what is wrong if it makes them happy

 

I’m losing the will to play with this chill

To let it all cave in on me

And I quit this game because it’s lame

And it is poisoning me

 

So I am going to make some noise

I am going to make some noise

I’m going to yell at you, at him, at her, at all of them

And I quit this game because it’s lame

And it is poisoning me

 

I will learn to lose concern with how my truth affects you

I might trip over your shit but then I’ll kick it out of the way

 

I’ve lost the will to play with this chill

To let it all cave in on me

And I quit this game because it’s lame

And it is poisoning me

 

So I am going to make some noise

I am going to make some noise

I’m going to yell at you, at him, at her, at all of them

And I quit this game because it’s lame

It can no longer poison me

I quit this game because it’s lame

It can no longer poison me
