Everywhere you go you bite your tongue
Keeping quiet to please some other someone
So please
Please listen
To me

Everyone you meet seems to be certain
Never taking a good look behind the curtain
So please
Please listen
To me

There is a voice lodged deep inside your brain
Gagged and bound since birth
Happily restrained
But these knots they are unravelling
Like the stories and the songs you sing
But it’s hard to kneel and to be disarmed
But you’ve got to believe that you cannot be harmed

So please listen
Please listen
Please listen
Please listen
To me


from The Great Divide, released March 16, 2015
