He won't talk
He can't speak
The words risen

Frozen silently
For eternity
At least to me

He won't talk
He can't speak
The words risen

Question about
Where is his mouth
Eyes full of doubt

He won't talk
He can't speak
The words risen

How do I see
He wants me to be
Someone not me

He won't talk
He can't speak
The words risen

Pain inflicted
Tongue twisted
Name listed

He won't talk
He can't speak
The words risen

All the time to think
Written boldly in ink
Tears between each blink

He won't talk
He can't speak
The words risen

When did it get so hard
How have we got this far
Your words behind bars

He won't talk
He can't speak
The words risen

But we'll make it through
Me and you
If you'll teach me to

LISTEN.
