lyrics

I must ask you to proceed from here in complete silence…


Can you tell who has the loudest voice here?

Do you notice who here isn’t speaking?

Through the smallest movement of your eyelids
There’s a secret only I can see and

I tried to gather up this weight to hold you
But I couldn’t find the words to match it
They rage on you with the loudest voice here
I don’t even summon up a whisper

I tried to lift this weight in silence
Tried to walk this road in silence
Tried to shout so loud in silence
But no one could hear the thought I held to you

I wrote a song to honor your trial
and another about the season’s passing
But I never wrote a song that cut through
To the silence at the center of it

Such a perfect form I perceived in silence
Such a beauty i could not describe it
Such a weight I had no words to fight it
And you will not hear the way it holds me

Oh, in silence
Oh, in silence
Oh, in silence

Your enemy plays the game of virtue
He rages with the loudest voice too
In public squares he seeks to shame you
But he cannot penetrate the part of you
That will break his hold in silence
That will stay this breach in silence
That will hold the castle longer
Til no one can hear the way we loved her
