The silence gets so ugly now
As it begins to grow
And soon you can't remember
If you ever even spoke
It gets so big, it fills the air
It trickles down your throat
It gets so big, it fills the air
It shoots right up your nose

So you mutter something pointless
Out of pure necessity
The only thing that's certain now
Is your uncertainty

You're sure you made a noise
But now it's surrounded by the air
How can you ever prove
That it was ever even there?
Let alone that it had a tone
That proved you didn't care

Now what started off as one thing
Just like everything will change
No matter your precision
The words start to rearrange
Into a brand new sentence
Reflected back into your brain
Transformed during the journey
From your head and back again
So the meaning now is different
Though the words remain the same

Careful where you put your big ideas
Careless talk may cost us dear, my dear
Careful where you wast your words so wise
For I'm the impressionable kind
Yeah, I'm the impressionable kind

The silence gets so ugly now
As it begins to grow
And soon you can't remeber
If you ever even spoke
It gets so big, it fills the air
It trickles down your throat
It gets so big, it fills the air
It shoots right up your nose

He just watched the words so pretty
As they flew out of her mouth
She tried to swallow them down
But in the end, she had to spit them out
You don't know what they mean
But you just like the way they sound
You like the way your name fits in
The corners of her mouth
You like the way your name fits in
The corners of her mouth
You like the way your name fits in
The corners of her mouth
You like the way your name slips out
The corners of her mouth
