"Deafening silence" as written by Robert Conrad Flynn, Ahrue Luster, Adam Duce and Dave Mcclain....
Well She looked right into my
Eyes and said to me
The hurt that you try to
Hide is killing me
You drink a thousand lies,
To freeze the past in time

I've tried to fill this
Silence up
But now it's back again

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My God, I'm down in this
Hole again
With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road
Called life

She says that I'm insecure,
I guess she's right
'Cause just when I think
I'm sure, alone at night
The agonies come back, this
Pain won't let me be

I try to fill the silence up
But now it's back again

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My God, I'm down in this
Hole again
With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road
Called life
Don't need your sympathy
I just want for this silence
To stop killing me

It's deafening
It's deafening
This silence inside me

I try to fill the silence up
But now it's back again
It's empty like a suicide
This pain inside

See the pain in my eyes
See the scars deep inside
My God, I'm down in this
Hole again
With the laughter I smile
With the tears that I cry
Keep going down this road
Called life
Don't need your sympathy
I just want for this silence
To stop killing me.

    General Commenti see this song as a continuation of " trephination ". i think in that song, he goes through his life since the time period of his molestation and this song is really how he's doing now as a grown adult. and how he's tried to move on, but he can't forget it at all. i think in a way this album is all about rob's life... wicked album, wicked band.

    General CommentSlow, emotional, and amazing describes this song pretty well. Although, I don't think it's quite as good as The Burning Red (the song that is).

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy who is depressed and everyone can tell altho he tries to hide it. He wants help but does not want people to look down on him. This is definatly what i have been feeling for the past few weeks and i can really relate to this song.

    General CommentIt's about that nothingness you feel inside after losing something very important to, and how sometimes when you think you've moved on it comes back to haunt you again.

    General Commentyeah nothingness is the right word i guess... but you don´t even have to loose something important... If you are feeling the silence he sings about you have already lost an important part of youself. The trust in life, the trust maybe in god and the trust in yourself... It´s horrible to feel this way...It seems to start over and over and over again...You can´t get out of it, because it´s already inside you destroying everything that kept you alive...
