What a noise!
What a sound for the dying!
A sharp and sour sweet song of
anguish!
That swells up inside...

A crash and burn.
The revelery intoxicates life.
The Silent sweeps of landing that
fly...
And crys out inside...

This, my brother, is Radio Silence.

This, my friend, is the words we forgot,
When we were young we forgot,
We forgot to say them to our
loved ones,
We forgot to say them to our
enemies,
We forgot to shout them from
the rooftops,
We left them lonely in the gutter...
To wallow in self-pity.



And leaves us today, puzzled
in radio silence.



But what a noise!
What a sound for the living!
The sudden sherbert rush of
compassion,
that throws the past behind.
