Silence Me

from by Shutterwax



Silence Me

From a line of fragile people
who show their weakness every day.
Some may fear a church’s steeple
I can never fear that way.

Silence me, silence me
Over me. Under me.
Cover me. Bury me.
Silence me, silence me.
Why would you listen to me?
Over me. Under me.
Stop me before I can change your mind.

The slightest fear shuts down my mind, dear.
What does your agenda hold?
A supporting role, that’s not my part, dear.
But you knew that truth be told.

And every day, I look for crisis.
I know you find that hard to bear.
An idle prayer never suffices.
I need to know, do you care?
