Silent So Long

Checked with original booklet

I tell you when to speak

To get up from your seat

You're wearing the letter, abettor

See what you've done to me

 

I know there's nothing left to be

I know there is no use

There is no forever and ever

Can't fix what once was whole

 

It used to follow me wherever

Like vines that grew

I'd run to hold myself together

Like vines that grew

 

Silent so long

After the wait

After I'm on my own

I illuminate

 

Below the strong are weak

What talked has turned to meat

I let it get redder and redder

What tore inside of me

 

Alone I am my enemy

Alone I see the truth

I know that together or severed

I'll dig out from the hole

 

It used to follow me wherever

Like vines that grew

I'd run to hold myself together

Like vines that grew

 

Silent so long

After the wait

After I'm on my own

I illuminate
