"Silence is Distance" as written by and Michael Francis Tomlinson....
Silence is distance words are lonely there’s miles between your skin and mine,
Oh when sin is just words, in your silence there’s no crime.
So fake all your love in choosin' badly family with a lizards eye,
Oh and its makin' me ill, it's makin' me scared at how hard I try.

Yes if you fake all your love dear
Then there’s nowhere you can’t hide,
But stay with me honey though it’s safer inside.

You looked so funny when you told me: the rumor strikes the heart of the lie,
And I could taste it on the air, I could feel it on my spine.
Oh and even though it drove me wild I couldn’t blame you for having it straight in your mind: That two wrongs make a right,
For using it as an excuse every time.

But if you save all your money, You could leave this town tonight.
But if you come any nearer I’ll only be a mirror for your spite.
And if you fake all your love dear, then there’s nothing you can’t do -
but just save me the trouble of finding nothing more to you.

Silence is distance words are lonely there’s miles between your skin and mine,
But when sin is just words, in your silence there’s no crime.
So fake all your love in choosin' badly family with a lizards eye,
Because it’s making me ill, makin' me scared at how hard I try.

But if you save all your money, you could leave this town tonight.
Well if you come any nearer I’ll only be a mirror for your spite.
Yea if you fake all your love dear, then there’s nothing you can’t do –
but just save me the trouble of finding nothing more to you.
