Easy Silence

“Easy Silence”
When the calls and conversations

Accidents and accusations

Messages and misperceptions

Paralyze my mind
Busses, cars, and airplanes leaving

Burning fumes of gasoline

And everyone is running

And I come to find a refuge in the
Easy silence that you make for me

It’s okay when there’s nothing more to say to me

And the peaceful quiet you create for me

And the way you keep the world at bay for me

The way you keep the world at bay
Monkeys on the barricades

Are warning us to back away

They form commissions trying to find

The next one they can crucify
And anger plays on every station

Answers only make more questions

I need something to believe in

Breathe in sanctuary in the
Easy silence that you make for me

It’s okay when there’s nothing more to say to me

And the peaceful quiet you create for me

And the way you keep the world at bay for me

The way you keep the world at bay
Children lose their youth too soon

Watching war made us immune

And I’ve got all the world to lose

But I just want to hold on to the
Easy silence that you make for me

It’s okay when there’s nothing more to say to me

And the peaceful quiet you create for me

And the way you keep the world at bay for me
The easy silence that you make for me

It’s okay when there’s nothing more to say to me

And the peaceful quiet you create for me

And the way you keep the world at bay for me

The way you keep the world at bay for me

The way you keep the world at bay
