"Silence" as written by and Beth Gibbons Adrian Francis Utley....
"Esteja alerta para a regra dos três
O que você dá retornará para você
Essa lição você tem que aprender
Você só ganha, o que você merece"

Tempted in our minds
Tormented inside lie
Wounded and afraid
Inside my head
Falling through changes

Did you know when you lost?
Did you know when I wanted?
Did you know what I lost?
Do you know what I wanted?

Empty in our hearts
Crying out in silence
Wandered out of reach
Too far to speak
Drifting unable

Did you know when you lost?
Did you know when I wanted?
Did you know what I lost?
Do you know what I wanted?

    General CommentThis song's working name was "Wicca". The album it's on is called "Third". If you google the Wiccan Rule of Three, you'll find out the gist of the Portuguese sample:

    "Ever mind the Rule of Three,
    Three times what thou givest returns to thee,
    This lesson well, thou must learn,
    Thee only gets what thou dost earn."

    Basically a version of moral reciprocity: the Golden Rule, karma, whatever. This suggests that the kind of heartache, frustration, and despair described in the album's lyrics may often have an overlooked source (i.e. take a look in the mirror).

    It sounds like she is singing to a loved one who has hurt or disappointed her.

    My InterpretationMy personal interpretation is that she's mourning the loss of an unborn child, like a miscarriage or something. Her partner doesn't understand the pain she's dealing with because he did a runner and now she suffers in silence.

    The way the track abrubtly ends symbolises the sudden loss of the unborn child
