WORDS

PEACE & QUIET

How can I confess my sins when my wildest dreams condemn me?

How can I ever know when I’m guilty?

How do I know where I’ve been? A thousand miles of bad road. 

It looks the same after a while.

Can you answer me?

I didn’t think so. Thank you, though.

 

There’s drums and thunder in my head.

Rolling in and out of these strange beds.

What she doesn’t know won’t hurt.

Everything is easier in silence.

 

So, I have two faces now. 

One is laughing and the other one is laughing much harder.

Oh, just wait until tomorrow night.

I’ll be going out drinking and spending money like tomorrow is the end.

And it might be if someone opens up their mouth.

 

There’s a conversation in my head.

But, I can’t make out anything that’s being said.

Won’t you turn that old song down?

Everything is easier in silence.

 

Words get in the way when there’s nothing to say.

Couldn’t we have some peace & quiet for a change?

 

She says she’s so afraid.

She says there’s no one there to save her.

I’ll never be no one’s saint.

Just hit the ground and do yourself a favor.

 

Words get in the way when there’s nothing to say.

Couldn’t we have some peace & quiet for a change?
