I Crave Silence

Cheryl Kahla > I Crave Silence

So many thoughts sometimes, in my mind. It’s never quite in there…
I just want silence

This might even be a little bit Poe inspired… I’ve read Siope (Silence) this week.

“And mine eyes fell upon the countenance of the man, and his countenance was wan with terror. And, hurriedly, he raised his head from his hand, and stood forth upon the rock, and listened. But there was no voice throughout the vast illimitable desert, and the characters upon the rock were silence. And the man shuddered, and turned his face away, and fled afar off, and I beheld him no more.” 

Cling And Clatter – Lifehouse
Too many voices it won’t take long
which one’s right and which one’s wrong
and yours is most likely to be misunderstood
screaming in tongues
at the top of my lungs
’til I find you ’til you found me
somehow I always knew that you would

and I am contemplating matters
all this cling and clatter
in my head and what you said
is ringing, ringing faster

and it’s all good if you would
stop the world from making sense
and if I could just realize
it doesn’t really matter
doesn’t really matter
doesn’t really matter

if I could touch
the sound of silence now
you know I would if I knew how
to make these intentions
come around

and I’m hearing without listening
and believing every word that
you’re not saying
speaking without a sound

and I am contemplating matters
all this cling and clatter
in my head and what you said
is ringing, ringing faster

and it’s all good if you would
stop the world from making sense
and if I could just realize
it doesn’t really matter
doesn’t really matter
doesn’t really matter

trapped inside
of these four walls
walking brainless muppet dolls
mushroom face
beneath the tangles
bleeding silhouette inside
dancing like an angel would

and it’s all good if you would
stop the world from making sense
and if I could just realize
it doesn’t really matter
doesn’t really matter
doesn’t really matter

and it’s all good if you would
stop the world from making sense
and if I could just realize
it doesn’t really matter
doesn’t really matter
all this cling and clatter
