Everyone is running around
trying not to make a sound.
For if they do they'll surely die,
so why I ask, why still try?
No answer given, only whispers
and then lips shut tight, held by zippers.
"Don't you know there is a price,
and so much sacrifice, to live this life?"
Well, yes I do. I learned this young,
but silence is not something on my tongue.
My life is loud, and some might say,
its inappropriate to live this way.
But I'd rather be honest, and not hide,
what I think and what I feel inside.
Because even if what I say is wrong,
I'll keep true to my hearts song.
If you don't like it, well fuck you.
My life is great without becoming mute.
This is my voice, my pride, my soul.
And this is my song, my tears and hope.
I believe in life, in sound and in stars,
Do not ever be afraid to be who you are <3
