lyrics

It's gettin hard to escape
My own mind runnin after me.
The corners I find
Aren't dark enough to keep me out of sight.

Windin reels play demands on repeat
Inchin near my heels while I'm already hearin from right and left.
Verging a moment serene
But the noise stays toe to toe securing theft of dear remaining space.

Silence won't you come back?
Silence won't you come back?
Silence won't you come back, and ease my mind.

I can't sleep, I've no peace,
Just midnight cravings for a sweet release,
No compass to stay north
No coordinates, I'm scatterbrained

Mind please stop rambling
I can't decipher sounds of moving lips while you speak so loud.
Running running I can't leave my past behind me
Or my future ahead of me.

Silence won't you come back?
Silence won't you come back?
Silence won't you come back?
Silence won't you come back?
Silence won't you come back, and ease my mind.
