Killed By Silence

Shut off from the world, silence sounds extremely loud
Surrounded by six walls, being murdered by the crowd
I try to say my words but I was suddenly put on mute
Nobody wants the truth just because the truth’s not cute
Lies and secrets make them feel great
Not even noticing the disasters they create
Yet they complain when something goes wrong
Looking for someone to blame so they can feel strong
Cornered by their deceit and promises which were never true
Praying to God is the only thing to do
Because I was searching for solutions, but I couldn’t find one
Looking for someone to listen but there was none
I look for microphones but they didn’t work
I feel like a bottle closed down by a cork
I want to explode because I’m tired of this noise
Silence sounds so irritating when I can’t hear my own voice
This makes no sense to me, yet I do not bare a frown
Until the world completely shut me down
I feel like my life was severed by a sharp knife
No decisions, no freedom I guess I barely had a life
And as I faded away my words echoed through their heads
Why is it that people only start listening when you’re dead?
