Meet Me In The Silence

lyrics

I adorn myself in strange ways
stare at the computer screen for hours
slip into a coma in my bed
every window I know is closed

Crack apart and spend some time alone
feel a rush of blood and get on the phone
harbor a grudge inside this urgency
get me off the line, it’s an emergency

Death is a bed, it’s an easy sleep
Meet me in the silence
For now I’ll make some protest noise
Swallow up the emptiness
Meet me in the silence
For now I’ll make some protest noise

May it echo on at least a couple beats
May it fill the air around these silent streets

Suburban home, you have no place for me
I don’t need your superficial domesticity
we’re all the same now, that’s what I fear
don’t try and change my mind, I’m stubborn here

Sentenced to solitary confinement
more like agoraphobic refinement
I’ve got my doctor, I’ve got my nurse
Gotta say I feel just like Patty Hearst

Death is a bed, it’s an easy sleep
Meet me in the silence
For now I’ll make some protest noise
Swallow up the emptiness
Meet me in the silence
For now I’ll make some protest noise

Just writing protest songs
About the way we’ve been living

If I could make commonplace feel new
Traffic patterns changed and so did you
Backsliding is all I meant to do
Backsliding, it’s what we’re meant to do
Was I floating up, or was I sinking down
I’m sure we met on middle ground

Death is a bed, it’s an easy sleep
Meet me in the silence
For now I’ll make some protest noise
Swallow up the emptiness
Meet me in the silence
For now I’ll make some protest noise
