"Flowers And Silence" as written by Liam Coverdale-howe, Chris Corner and Ian Pickering....
We're always, too always in doubt
Works on me
She's nowhere she mainlines helps me out
Now I can speak
Was heard not seen wasted nothings free
Was black was bruised fucked up twenty two

I'm amazed you eat you sleep you function at all
Cause my aims so weak I'd fail to get into my arm

Was made the first to laugh
Tried but the tribute short changed kindness
Flowers and silence
Was made the first to laugh
Charmed but the weather broke me sober
I've never been colder

Seen braver seemed braver since then
But never been
No favors no saviors no sense
It's not in me
So nothings free ghost drunk out of reach
So action this cared less never missed
And you preach you teach did I learn you nothing at all
I'm too dumb to see but you stooped for someone this small

You'll always be closing me down denied me remind me I'm sold out
Just skin and teeth
Left black and bruised fucked up nothing new
Was heard not seen wasted so nothings free

    General CommentI think this song is about an alcoholic's death, at the age of twenty-two. Presented like so in the lyrics, "Was black was bruised fucked up twenty two", "I've never been .colder" and "So nothing's free ghostdrunk out of reach" She asked him to stop drinking, but he wouldn't. So she left him and that's when he realized what kind of shithole he had dug himself, "Charmed but the weather broke me sober" and "I've never been colder ."

    Now he mourns the day he didn't listen to her. That's what I think it means.

    General Commentthis song is about heroin. 'she's nowhere, she mainlines, helps me out'. mainlines means shooting up, and he's black and bruised because of it. he drinks to get off the dope. excellent song, sends chills down my spine
