"The Silent Acquiescence Of Millions" as written by Michael Ryan Abramson, Anthony E. Lannutti, Daniel Joseph Mcfarland and James C. Stem....
Always feeling so uncomfortable, and the situation tends to be predictable
Hope slips through trained fingers, It's how it's always been
I can't seem to tear myself away, been living in the past with my mistakes
But I always find a way to numb the tension, bury thoughts alone
Under the skin to hide the damage done to my defense
Senses dulled then cracked, I concede that maybe
I'm unsure of just what it takes to frustrate and dismantle apathy
Rain, wash away the temptations before I let them get the best of me
Yesterday's accomplishments, replaced by tomorrow's burdens
A never ending cycle begins, so diseased and looking for a means to an end
I found nothings solid anymore, all that's left is try and I confess that maybe
I'm unsure of just what it takes to frustrate and dismantle apathy
Rain, wash away the temptations before I let them get the best of me
Designed and developed inside of my lungs, on the tip of my fucking tongue
But no one ever gets the point
That life is always about to fall to pieces, just something beautiful that's about to get wrecked
But no one wants to feel at all
Because we've made ourselves so numb, but I want to feel something
I won't ever live that way again, somewhere along the line I lost feeling
And I lost control, But then I lost strength and completely lost hope
When our lives are consumed by society's fumes,
We punch our time clocks and watch the ignorance bloom
And how strange that we all feel the same, and how strange that no one dares complain
See I'm always turning backwards and forwards again retracing my steps to the bitter cold end
Rewind the tape and let me see exactly where it went wrong, indulge in our pasts strong
And how strange that we all feel the same, and how strange that no one complains
Designed and developed inside of my lungs on the tip of my fucking tongue
But no one ever gets the point
That life is always about to fall to pieces something beautiful that's about to get wrecked
But no one wants to feel at all
Because we made ourselves so numb, don't you want to feel something

    General CommentI love this song so much. If only Sinch would be more adventurous with their pace changes and song lengths they'd be perfect!

    General CommentI think this song is a lament on modern society and how it has become cold, un-feeling and sterile. The lead singer wants his life to be an experience but others are different and they don't feel the same. They feel 'numb' to life and just let it pass by without taking time to care fo themselves and others.

    General CommentHarry Manback pretty much nailed it.

    Anybody who's seen Sinch live knows the ocular noise machine runs the words "Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday" over and over again during this song, with various images and other things in between. Basically saying that everyday is the same, and everybody's become numb to it. But as Jamie screams at the end "I'm numb... but I want to feel something"... he wants to break away from it. They did an excellent job of getting through on this song.

    General CommentFolks, the name of the song says it all. It's about the silent suffering of millions of people, leading boring ordinary lives, and how, for the most part, nobody can do anything about it. The Silent Acquiesance of Millions. That's the name of that tune.
