lyrics

SILENCE
There’s a basic principal he’s been taught to embrace
And he can’t seem to shake it off
It’s a struggle trying to always rise above

And the eyes that stare back from the mirror
They try to shine light through
But when he sees the light, he knows not what it’s for

(CHORUS)
He keeps his silence; he’s his own counsel
He won’t break for anyone
He walks in circles, bides his time

He keeps his silence, but he’s no martyr
He can’t hold it in anymore
His scars may grow still, but he won’t lie still anymore

We’re always seeking fodder and he’s an obvious choice
‘Cause kindness is strength in his mind
He finds it strange but he’s been a stranger all of his life

And the sun can’t imagine the freeze around her
But she shines through, says he can too
But when he sees the light he knows not what it’s for

(Chorus)

He keeps his silence, he’s his own’ counsel
He won’t break for anyone
He walks in circles, bides his time

He keeps his silence, but he’s no martyr
He can’t take it anymore
His scars may grow still, but he won’t lie still anymore
