Lyrics by: Geoff Thomas

lyrics

SILENCE

After she went
When the sympathetic departed
He stood helpless,
Embarrassed in grief,
Clumsy inability
Sprung upon him
Reason told him, pain so bad must end

House hummed quietly,
Fuelled with order, oiled with meaning
Stationary, silent now
Dissembled

Wounded in every room. Defenceless.
Her glasses on the desk, eyeless
Her straw hat in a shaft of sunlight
Gripped his throat.
Clumsy inability
Sprung upon him
Reason told him pain so bad, must end.

House hummed quietly,
Fuelled with order, oiled with meaning
Stationary, silent now
Dissembled

But the walls and windows, furniture
And doors, told him it never would.
He was at once aware that
He had known of this awfulness
Waiting for him, all his life.
Non-death, bleeding without dying
Clumsy inability,
Sprung upon him
Reason told him pain so bad must end

House hummed quietly,
Fuelled with order, oiled with meaning
Stationary, silent now
Dissembled
House hummed quietly,
Fuelled with order, oiled with meaning
Stationary, silent now
Dissembled


Facing the worst enemy – Silence.
