Lyrics

Compared to me, the seven seas are smaller than a tear.
A moment is like a century or else ten thousand billion years.
I?m older than the universe, and larger than the sky.
Every creature has known me from birth until they die.

I?m loved by everybody yet I?m hated desperately.
There's not one single person that hasn't talked to me.
So tell me all your secrets and I'll point no hand of shame.
Regardless what your conscious says, I won't hold you to blame.

Yes, share with me your sorrows, with me you can be bold.
I?ve heard it said that confession is a tonic for the soul.
No power could ever move me to tell one single word.
Because my name is "Silence" and silence is never heard!
