Unspoken - Arnold Jansen Llego


Words I say may never mean anything to you 
And it may just be a doodle vibration 
Yet deep within it's shallow waters 
Is a heart longing for salvation 

I'm bored, yes I am. 
Bored of the never ending routine 
Let me out of my cage 
Else I'll go mad with conviction 

Parry not my words for they are no lies 
Break not my pause for they are sublime 
Interfere not my message for they are the truth 
Pierce not my heart for It is utmost fragile 

And when the end came And I have never yet spoken 
Maybe a smile is what you'll see 
And behind my lips lies what cannot be told 
A secret I carry in my cold sleep
