My voice is stifled by the clamor of silence.
 
There is a such thing as too much quiet.
 
That leaves me time to think. Moments spent near and far, fading from the world. No one wants me here, in the present, resentful. Pretend platitudes will relieve me of solitude, an isolated incident ("none of my other friends feel this way")
 
No one ever believes one loss is one loss too great, for what is one among the many?
 
I am a single heart, a one-tracked mind.
A lonely road that stretches on.
 
You have faith that I'll stay but I told you once I never pray.
 
Please believe that I will leave.
 
The quiet is a riot in my head
A riot in my head
A riot in my head
Protesting this life,
better off - -
