4​/​156 [from the tower of babel]

I try to scream, but it’s hardly poetry
Just a language I don’t speak
Because all that I do is dream
(yeah, In the minor key)
When I get down on my knees, to satisfy the beast.
I used to make you sing but now you barely speak
Oh, now you barely speak
So go shout it from the Tower of Babel!

“Words unspoken – will choke you and watch you die”

The slowest suicide.

Now I can’t breath
Some days I can barely see, past the static of your fantasies.
Where you hardly ever dream
(No more in the major key)
So I’m asking won't you please?
Switch off all of your machines?
To remember when we used to sing the stars to sleep,
yeah sing stars to sleep.
When you'd call out from the Tower of Babel!

“Words unspoken – they eat us up from inside”

Yeah a dumb man’s parasite
