"As Screams Turn to Silence" as written by and Michael Jason/emmons Williams....
I watched the walls collapse
Beneath a hollow shell of lies
Worn paper-thin and stained in black, fell beneath the fading light
The shards that penetrate
The thickest of my skin
I feel the sting it separates, and bleeds my body of its sin

The darkness that grows inside, like a cancer that's feeding
Reflected behind her eyes
As screams turn to silence

The sound is deafening
The hollow voices of regret
Held like the damned under the flames
Burned against the endless night
The pain that suffocates
A prayer escapes my lips
Force fed the lies, I'm choking back the bitter taste of what I am

The darkness that grows inside like a cancer that's feeding
Reflected behind her eyes
As screams turn to silence

The pain grows to consume me
Counting the scars left in its wake
The endless torment of silence
Crashing down it separates

That darkness that grows inside like a cancer that's feeding
Reflected behind her eyes
As screams turn to silence

    General CommentHe talks about his inner problems and troubles. His pain is locked in and he learns to keep everything to himself, hence 'as screams turn to silence.' He talks about, im assuming, hurting himself, saying 'and bleeds my body of its sin,' maybe saying that he deserves what he does to himself.' Reflected behind her eyes' might be him making a woman sad because of her pain, or maybe that the woman doesn't care or help. Any other ideas?

    General CommentOkay, I'm confused, this band openly stated that they aren't Christian anymore, nor were they ever Christian to begin with, but I detect strong Christian or spiritual feelings and actions in the lyrics. He's talking about sin and prayer, I mean, I know it's most likely just poetic and he's using passive phrasing, but it's really fucking with my brain.
