"The Silence" as written by David Jonathan Bendeth, Bobby Huff, Brooks Patrick Betts, Christopher Jake Bundrick, Alexander Antonio Garcia, Jeremy Stephen Lenzo and Derek Michael Sanders....
Torn in two, she lies awake,
The moon lights up her room like day
Another night she spends alone,
Without his touch, her skin so cold.

The blood that's running through her veins,
With every beat there's no escape,
Lost in everything she trusts,
Still can't seem to get enough.

Even though the world she loves,
It won't ever be the way it was,
And his heart of stone left hers breaking.

Every night she cries and dies a little more each time,
Say you love me (You love me),
Nothing left inside,
Say you love me,
And the silence will set her free.

Memories they take her back,
Every moment fades to black,
Every kiss and every taste,
She wishes time would ease the pain.

Even though the world she loves,
It won't ever be the way it was,
And her heart is weak, her hands are shaking.

Every night she cries,
And dies a little more each time,
Say you love me (You love me),
Nothing left inside,
Say you love me,
And the silence will set her free.

And every night she cries.

I don't know if I'll ever make this right,
'Cause I am just so broken by the bitterness of loneliness,
And I'm so scared of this.
I don't know if ill ever make this right,
'Cause I am just so broken by the bitterness of loneliness,
And I'm so scared.

Even though the world she loves,
It won't ever be the way it was,
And his heart of stone left hers breaking.

Every night she cries,
And dies a little more each time,
Say you love me (You love me),
Nothing left inside,
Say you love me,
And the silence will set her free.

(Every night she cries,
Every night she cries)
The silence will set her free

    General CommentI like the song. It has a less upbeat sound. It reminds me a little of Tales Told By Dead Friends.
    I'm super excited for the new CD. <333

    General CommentI said it in the Anywhere But Here comments, but I'll say it again. This vibe is reminiscent of the Hawthorne Heights, Armor For Sleep, and Silverstein era. I love it. It's not the happy techno stuff that we're hearing a lot of now, it's darker, but it's full of meaning. I love it, and I've missed this stuff. Fuck, I can't get enough of this. I have a feeling I'm breaking out The Silence in Black and White tonight.

    General CommentSome of the lyrics are wrong, but I'm not going to correct it. This song is about a girl who's totally head over heels for a guy that she had a relationship with. But he broke up with her because he "doesn't feel the same anymore". Or some other lame excuse like that. And she can't get over him, but he's completely cold to her now. He treats her like a stranger. Aghh, this hits close to home. =/

    General CommentI especially like the chorus line "the silence will set her free". "Say you love me" but he doesn't say that. He doesn't answer. And in the silence, she has her answer. Whether she likes it or not, she knows how he feels now and all she can do is try to detach.
