We Sit In Silence

We sit in silence
Night turns into day
Headlights on the highway
We sit in silence
Echoes of last night
Dawning of twilight
We sit in silence
Reflect, transcend
Quiet, best friend
We sit in silence
Atmosphere deafening
What I should say is nothing

Talking would ruin this perfect moment
Like running to keep an appointment
That was canceled weeks ago
Another thing not to talk about

We sit in silence
Shut up, shut up
Shut up, shut up
We sit in silence
Shut up, shut up
Shut up, shut up

Everything is nothing
I’ve got nothing better to do than
Think of all the things I could say
And avoid saying them to you

We sit in silence
It isn’t deafening
It isn’t anything
We sit in silence
Misunderstand, misrepresent
Is that what you meant? Is that what I meant?
We sit in silence
Morning, waking up
I can’t hear you, you’re breaking up
We sit in silence
Anger felt previously
It’s killing you, it’s killing us, it’s killing me

What kind of people are we
Talking never solves anything
Silence paves over the dead body
Of last night’s conversation

We sit in silence
Medicine, medicine
Medicine, medicine
We sit in silence
Medicine, medicine
Medicine, medicine

When did this become our thing
Why is this the way we’ve chosen
Why is this the best way
Why are we strangers, frozen

We sit in silence
We make an effort
To make no effort
We sit in silence
The past holds a gun to our heads
What you said, what I said
We sit in silence
Complacent complacency
Emptiness and apathy
We sit in silence
How long can this go on
Until we forget where we’ve gone

We sit in silence
Medicine, medicine
Medicine, medicine
We sit in silence
Medicine, medicine
Medicine, medicine
We sit in silence
Shut up, shut up
Shut up, shut up
We sit in silence
Shut up, shut up
Shut up, shut up…
