The Less I Hear, The Less You Say

You talk
I don't listen
You wanna walk
You have my permission

You don't own me
You don't make my rules
I am free
Not one of your fools

I don't hear the words
Coming out of your mouth
You speak in herds
And you're heading south

When you speak
My ears go numb
I don't hear a squeak
Not even an um 

I wish you would disappear
Just leave today
Because in the end
The less I hear
The less you say
