Quiet
I am sleeping 
In here
We need a little hope 

For years 
I've been sleeping  Helpless 
Couldn't tell a soul

Be ashamed 
Mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
 Behind me

 Silent  Metal mercies
 Castrate 
Boys to the bone

 Jesus 
Are you listening? 
Up there 
To anyone at all

We are the fossils 
The relics of our time
We mutilate the meanings 
So they're easy to deny

Be ashamed 
Mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
 Behind me

 Quiet 
I am sleeping  Quiet 
I am sleeping  Quiet 
I don't trust you
I can't hear you

Be ashamed 
Mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
 Behind me

 Behind me
The grace of falling snow
 Cover up everything you know
Come save me from the awful sound
Of nothing
