Silence
And 
Quiet
Are two different things.

Silence is bold, loud and persistent.
Quiet is timid, soft and slow.
How did I come to know one over the other so well?

I drink to remember,

I drink to forget

Light the keg on fire, I've had enough for tonight

Enough can never really be adaquate 

until it's too much,

I can't remember where I heard that

But it sounds so right, like a melody that's stuck in your head, ringing in your ears. 

Never heard it, but you know it by heart 

Forever silent,
And ever so quiet
