Stop speaking
Bite your tongue
Can you taste it?
Taste the blood
Shut your mouth
Stop the flood
Can you taste it?
Taste the blood

Stay deadly still
Don’t make a move
Stop to think
The moments prove
In the silence
Hold your breath
Don't let go
Of nothing left

Can you feel it?
It's on the tip of your tongue
Can you taste it?
Can you taste the blood?
Stop screaming
Because nobody can hear
Sew your mouth shut
And taste the blood

Originally song lyrics, but it ended up sounding better as a poem.
