The self perpetuating trap of silence brings all kinds of death to oneself. Something that I’ve had great difficulty with. This song addresses “you” but I probably should have addressed myself.

“Open rebuke is better that hidden love.” Proverbs 27:5

VERSE 1
Don’t you speak your mind
it’s not polite
Keep the peace they said
but didn’t mean yours

CHORUS
Isolated from life
and learnt to live with it
put aside the feelings
to self destructive ends

VERSE 2
You don’t think you can be yourself
all the torment your own
people just want a good time
but you stand alone

BRIDGE
Your broken but nobody
ever knows your pain
deceptions keep building up
irrational ways

OUTRO
Open ears never felt so good
when that’s all you needed
to believe you’re understood
has stopped the bleeding

██████ MEANING ██████
VERSE 1
For the sake of getting along, some people don’t voice their thoughts and opinions, fearing a conflicting encounter. Sharing such things about yourself helps you be connected with others. But when someone is constantly silent they build up various emotions, there can be an appearance of peace but not within oneself.

CHORUS
With a silent lifestyle you become an outsider to living and you’ve learnt to deal with it yourself. Putting aside the negative feelings build up from isolation is possible with various unhealthy behaviours and addictions.

VERSE 2
The trap of silence makes you think you are on your own and every one of your struggles (or just the struggle to speak) is not to be talked about. Generally people want to have positive encounters, but being around people (who want to enjoy the encounter with you and others) is only confirmation of your distance. People have no idea on what’s going on.

BRIDGE
Your broken but nobody ever knows your emotional pain. The lies you believe build up false ideas, in turn feeding irrational ways of life that only distance you more.

OUTRO
Having someone who will actually listen to you patiently, with empathy, feels great. Sometimes that’s all you need. Walls are broken down from emotional isolation. To feel like someone understands you puts an end to the, seemingly impossible to cure, pain you feel.
