silent lyrics – edge of sanity

to live a life in silence, to live without the word.
i’m sitting here like a silent bird.
you try to understand the symbols of my hand.
i am like a rock that has turned to sand.
[chorus:] silent. muted for eternal time? so violent.
but i just can’t confess my crime
like every human being there is a thing i seek.
for me the day when i can finally speak.
to hear my voice again, i still remember when
i could say what was on my mind.
i rule the streets at night, against myself i fight.
i am only trying to survive you see.
no man will ever live after what i will give.
his soul will go to meet my voice up there.
[chorus]
piece by piece i die. soon there’s no
tears to cry. i am fading out just like a star falling
from the sky! i hear me in my dreams. i can’t deny
i am suffering. judge from my silent screams.
without my voice i am withering.
oh, how i wish to scream and to wake
up from this dream, but the pain i feel is real.
i try to say my name. but i always hear the same:
silence! it drives me insane. to live a life in silence,
to live without the word. i’m sitting here like a silent bird.
you try to understand the symbols of my hand. i am like a
rock that has turned to sand. like every human being there’s
a thing i seek, for me the day when i can finally speak. to
hear my voice again i still remember when i could say what
was on my mind. silent.
[chorus]
the written word has no meaning,
there is no harmony in my words.
