The Music "Of Silence"


Solitary confinement

Is like betting the devil that you can win

Such a loss in sep'rate thought

Can gain the mass of siege

One more morning of the waking

Can gain the loss of exciting me

Whenever time surges meaning

I can tell where the losses go


I know my brain isn't perfect

But I can tell I am all lost at seas

Whenever you lose "the music"

Some one stops you from forming it up

__all over again

I know if that ever happens to me

I will feel all weak

And if that ever happens to me

I will have to lose more of my sleep


For now, I will have to have somebody else

Determine for me, whether it's right

For me to go and mimic minds

Half of me will know

Nothing of the sort

So believable

That I can stand on the porch

And die!


Yes, in due time, it is right

But, hence, speak the meaning

And then once again all is lost

I know you can move to your own music

So let's not try and switch the rhythm

Just bask in the wealth

Of your own madness

While I bask in mine
