lyrics

TIRED OF SILENCE

Why do I feel like I've been struggling,
trying to prove that I'm on par?
All my care and hesitation,
don't think it got me very far

And I feel I fade to nothing
and nothing comes of this

I guess I'm tired of silence,
the thoughts I keep, the words I never say
I'm tired of hiding
If I move forward, will I get pushed away?

I've got pages full of sketches stashed away,
imaginary characters in my head
They're havin' conversations here inside my mind
as I drink my drink and eat my bread

My inner world is shining;
it's florescent and it's bright,
but I'm painted with pastel so no one winces at the light
I know that I'm not average 'cause these symbols haunt my life
How do I meet standards when they don't even -- don't even apply?

I'm tired, tired of silence,
the thoughts I keep, the words I never say
I'm tired of hiding
If I move forward, will I get pushed away?
