Silence

Come to the Flame – Cause the silence knows your name
Tell me about tomorrow – will it always be the same
Why do we cry when the dreams cannot come true
Too hard to accept the loss only silence coming through
Why do we mourn the things that were never real
Only in the silence do we learn the things we feel
     And I rage without a motive with the unicorns hard at play
     Try so hard to keep it all away
     Beings of anger we give into the violence
     Faced with realization – in the silence
Why do we cry the the dreams cannot come true
And it seems no one would care what we’re going through
Why do we mourn the loss of things we never had
And laugh when deep inside we feel sad

Moths to the flame – it’s certain death it’s not a game
To find out whats in the light – dance into the flame
Why do we try to understand what only time will tell
too hard to just relax and see this is why the dragons fell
Why do we mourn the things that were never real
It’s a question silence tells us how we should feel
     And I smile without a reason at the things I do not know
     For as long as this is true I will grow
     Beings of emotion we ride the waves of violence
     Take the time to question – in the silence
Why do we cry when the song comes to a close
And it seems there should be more lines of prose
Why do we mourn the loss of dreams that never die
And walk a lonely path when we can fly
together
in silence
