For I Was Living In My Tomb

why is mute:

so hard for you?

get it in your brain 

it's not so hard to compute 

words couldn't help with the pain 

that acute 

so in-tuned 

with who i was 

put salt in the wound 

so i think i'll stay quiet. mute 

don't show them the fire. we're doomed 

and everyone just assumed 

that i could flourish.. bloom 

but not so, for i was living in my tomb
