The only people who don't get anywhere are the people who don't dream of a better place for themselves...


Voices crawl among the Quiet,
Seduction,
Temptation,
Such desire hidden behind the words...
Unknown.
Soundless.

Breathing away Innocence,
Every dream,
Undeniable...
Who am I?
What have we become?
My darling...

Pale eyes lack understanding,
Searching underneath the screams,
But nothing is found,
Nothing...
Nothing...
Forever...



We Are Silence.

This is all about what you feel when you don't know what to say because it hurts too much to speak to someone who doesn't care what you say...

"We have it in our power to begin the world over again." -Thomas Paine

Very moving and extraordinarily powerful. This simple style is hard to pull off well, but when it is, it makes the most impacted, and that was perfected here. And cool picture.

This is so powerful

"This is my place of failure."

Pale eyes don't always lack understanding. It takes a cold bastard to put someone through this and know what they're doing.
