silence is golden lyrics – garbage

if i am silent
i am not real
if i speak up then
no one will hear
if i wear a mask there’s
somewhere to hide

silence is golden
i have been broken
safe in my own skin
so n*body wins

if i raise my voice
will someone get hurt?
if i can feel it
but i can’t get touched
if no truce was spoken
then don’t ask me why

silence is golden
i have been broken
safe in my own skin
so n*body wins

won’t someone listen
i have been broken
safe in my own skin
so n*body wins

did you hear me speak
do you understand
did you hear my voice
did you take my hand
did you understand me

won’t someone listen?
i have been broken
my body’s a temple
but nothing is simple

won’t someone listen?
something was stolen
silence is golden
so n*body listen

won’t someone listen?
i have been broken
my body’s a temple
but nothing is simple

won’t someone listen?
i have been broken
my body’s a temple
but nothing is simple

won’t someone listen?
i have been broken
the silence is golden
i’m safe in my own skin

won’t someone listen?
i have been broken
my body’s a temple
but nothing is simple
