lyrics

lately silence is the most beautiful sound
some say it is a virtue, too
there is a question of what you done propound
but not in doubt is your turpitude

hold on, hold on
to your heresay & your grudge,
they won’t get me down again

no sensed contrition, replete with pride
face pressed on the window glass eyes closed to the inside
in can be proved impossible to hear the lack of sound
with every further utterance continues the downward slide

hold on, hold on
to your heresay & your grudge,
they won’t get me down again

not as slow as when it was just less unknown
like moving faster through the fog
but as it cleared bright light appeared & a fitful love was shone
on what was left & what never even made the prologue
