voluntary silence lyrics – grave flowers

so many words are buried in my mind
i don’t speak my piece i’ll keep it all inside
no one really knows what i have to say
i won’t reveal myself i don’t work that way

i don’t waste my words
i speak when i feel
and when i have something to say
but sometimes i feel so down
that i don’t even move my mouth
those days you better stay away

i wish people could see the expression on my face
if you don’t get it then which is my strongest trace
something is wrong and i don’t care to explain
that’s my fault and i give myself the pain

i don’t waste my words
i speak when i feel
and when i have something to say
but sometimes i feel so down
that i don’t even move my mouth
those days you better stay away

don’t force me to speak and explore myself
i’ll let you in if you give of yourself
locked up words can cause grief and pain
words spoken without a care can bring the same

i don’t waste my words
i speak when i feel
and when i have something to say
but sometimes i feel so down
that i don’t even move my mouth
those days you better stay away
