The flowers have wilted on the sill
And words have been kept so small and still
And yet if the great opinion speaks
Then sadly we nod our heads and agree
Barely a mention of your name
On deaf ears a distant whisper
Whatever, no one gets it

It's already overdue you will not be heard by many now
But I'll always be amazed by every sound your ever made

While building a tolerance to them
You made sorrow sound like a good friend
The well where the poison pen was drawn
The same place you trusted then but was gone
Enemies battled in your mind
Until all the blood shed leaked down
Dried up and rusted the fight

It's already overdue you will not be heard by many now
But I'll always be amazed by every sound you ever made
And since I did not know you, I can only say but a few words
Too bad they won't hear your song that I've been singing all alone

[Voice]: ?

    General Commentcan someone take out the Brittish Accent Voice in the end of the song? What I hear is:

    It was what he waited for all these years.
    ..............................................
    Sitting alone in a small, dark room.
    Coldness have gripped him, squeezed his heart.

    General Commenthey btw.
    I think this song is about Derek, the old Lagwagon drummer. Also ex drummer of Bad Astronauts. Who died in suicide 1 ½ years ago or something. Not really into that case.

    General CommentBowline, the "British accent voice" is actually a quote from the radio version of Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams. The full quote is "It was what he had waited for all these years, but when he had deciphered the signal pattern sitting alone in his small dark room a coldness had gripped him and squeezed his heart."
