The Rest Is Silence...

The fall has settled into town,
Herald of the winter,
You see all the withered leafs resting on the ground,
You feel a cold breeze sneak up behind you,
Knocks on your back door and reminds you,
It won't be long,
Before the winter chill,
Comes along,
You grip tightly on your jacket,
Sit down on a park bench,
Light a cigarette,
And think of the times that were,
The times that are and will be,
And those that ain't gonna be anymore,
The rest is silence,
The rest is silence,
The rest is silence,
The rest is silence,
A frail tear,
Trickles down your troubled face,
'Cause you know, that like the brown leafs all around you,
You too will fall from grace one day,
So you walk up to the bus stop,
With the music of all the yesterdays you've had,
And the tomorrows that have not yet come,
Ringing in your ears,
And an uncertain and naive fear,
Lingers near,
You sit down and rest your head,
On the cold and misty window,
You look out to all the people standing round,
And wish things wouldn't be so,
The naked trees, like disarmed soldiers,
Standing in a line,
They tell stories and paint pictures,
That we're much too blind,
And cannot see,
The rest is silence,
The rest is silence,
The rest is silence,
The rest is silence
So you step out onto the curb,
And listen to the busy streets,
The sound of silence cracks,
And begins to breath,
And bleed all over the tracks,
As the sun fades,
The truth knocks you back,
You never trully stay,
You can only linger for some time,
But eventually you'll fade away,
The rest is silence,
The rest is silence,
The rest is silence,
The rest is silence.



Only through yer own eyes can you really start to see mate. Society's not the way, and if it is, it's the wrong one. It's whole concept's based on the assumption that we're all alike, when we're not, we're different, and it's whithing that difference that exists our humanity. So fuck the white collars and the legislatures, the law-makers and the lawyers, the politicians and the lobbiests, the judges and the criminals, the cops and the felons, hang them all, and let them all burn slowly in the pire. Burn the flags and constitutions from every country in the world, disband the nations and bring down the boarders and limits. Burn the wallstreet-behaving bastards along with all the bankers and all the other money-mungering whores who fuck people up for a living. Burn the labels you have on God, abandon the believe that those narrow and hard to walk fucking paths, those box size jails, that all the various religions are, are the only ways to peace and love, 'cuz they really lead only to one place, destruction. And those two things everyone's always yappin' on about, exist withing ourselves, they reside only in our souls, they cannot be found out there in the world. That's why some people are miserable in one particular place and others are happy in the same fucking place. Happiness and peace, we choose to show them or hide them, in the end it's up to you, you wanna be happy? Burn the "social" version of "you", exorcise it if you will, only then will you trully come to know who the fuck you are, what you're fucking made of. See life through your own eyes, not through someone else's. Be yourself, let things be, stop trying to be perfect, and be free, only then will you trully be happy and at peace... CHEERS!
