"Mute" as written by Stevie Benton, Jason Jones, Michael Luce and C.j. Pierce....
Shouldn't have that far to go
The less you think the more you know
It seems the dream is impossible
Never made a difference so why should you
Promise me you won't look at me
There's nothing left here to talk about

There's nothing left
No matter how hard I try
The lonely one refuses to die
Someday I will be a better man
Never made a difference so why should I
Promise me you won't look at me

    General Comment"the less you think the more you know" how true is that? overthinking things just means you get more and more worried, automatically assuming the worst. xx

    General CommentCoping with a malicious breakup, trying to deal with the repercussions but is being torn apart. Wishing his ex was mute or he was mute so talking could cease to create problems. Living not hating on life and its extremedies.

    General CommentShouldn't have that far to go
    The less you think the more you know
    (implying overanalysis)
    It seems the dream is impossible
    Never made a difference so why should you
    (Could be any dream; more likely someone trying to succeed where he did and he's telling them off, or maybe a love affair? "I never meant anything to you, why do you to me?")
    Promise me you won't look at me
    (If the person succeeded; or the love affair after failure if you go that route.)
    There's nothing left here to talk about
    There's nothing left
    (Straightforward; nut up or shut up; or I don't wanna hear from you ex lover)
    No matter how hard I try
    The lonely one refuses to die
    (This makes me lean toward love affair but could be less straightforward and mean bitterness about his failure at something else and loneliness brought by isolation i.e. he's unable to share his sadness for fear it would be viewed as weakness?)
    Someday I will be a better man
    (open to interpretation)
    Never made a difference so why should I
    Promise me you won't look at me
