In silence the world will listen 
to the thunder of my existence 
will they ever know that which is me 
or will i fade away as silence glide 

will silence enfold me for a life 
maybe a past a present stay 
or will this silence become my rule 
to treat and heal and break my soul 

i wish to year your silent words 
as they glide over torn and battered skin 
will you hear me in this silence 
that will keep me locked away 

i wish that you could stay in here 
and feel the day I have to live 
when the sounds of thunder echo 
and the silence of new day grow 

i hope to find the meaning to you 
and find the ceasing behind it all 
now all that is left is for darkness 
to come and make its nest in my soul
