"Silent Screams" as written by Bob Marlette and Robert John Arthur Halford....
Look at me I'm chasing
After dreams left in the storm
What I am is all
That really matters now
That lies are gone -
That lies are gone,
All the lies are gone,
The lies are gone.

Tempting fate and losing
Friends along the way I loved
No regrets
I'm standing
With a needle in my heart -
Needle in my heart,
Needle in my heart,
Needle in my heart.

You'll never know
My life means everything
Still I scream because
There's nothing left to do until the end.

The world goes on
With all that I've become
And still I scream inside
For all the pain I've taken hasn't changed.

Nothing's changed at all
The truth is like a chain
Heaven's calling me
The place that I belong
Killing pain -
Killing pain.

Close my eyes a million faces
Get inside my mind.
Take a breath and fill my troubled
Soul with all mankind.
Killing pain -
Killing pain,
I'm killing pain,
Killing pain.

The world goes on
With all that I've become.
And still I scream inside
For all the pain I've taken hasn't changed...

The man in black
I'm coming back to spew my evil hate.
My crown of horns and bloody thorns
I'll dig up what you fear.

I am the shape that's in your room that watches over you.
I am the needle in your heart - your disillusioned God.

I am God, I am fate, I am all the sins you make, yeah - hate.
I am black, I am white, I am the blood upon the knife, yeah - hate.

Since time began I made a vow to drag you underground;
To steal your soul of purity and watch you waste away.

I am pure, I am right, I'm the God that makes you fight, yeah - hate.
I am life, I am death, I will steal your final breath, yeah - hate.

I prey upon your broken dreams your weakness gives me strength.
I'm laughing at your silent screams I'll crush you with my hate.

You take it all
And face the fear that's here
Until the Silence Screams
it leaves you with no choice to carry on.

You'll never fall
When all is said and done
The only Scream is here
The journey never ends - it's just begun...

The lies that never learned
The needles in my heart
And things will never change
So everytime I scream I'm killing pain.

    Song MeaningWow. You people have 'gay' on the brain. You have no idea how far all of you are off.

    First, let me start by saying that Rob is 32 years clean and sober.

    let me break this down for you... the 'needle' is actually a needle. I mean how clear does it have to be. This song has three sections... what recovery is doing, what 'the needle' (aka drug of choice) is doing to you and what it thinks and thinks of you. and then part 3.... the journey never ends. Recovery. I hope there's not a character limit here because I'm about to paste something I posted on fb...

    *** START ***

    *** Talking to your addiction (whatever it is) A.K.A. ‘The Needle’ ***

    Look at me I'm chasing
    after dreams left in the storm.

    What I am is all
    that really matters now.

    The lies are gone -
    The lies are gone.
    All the lies are gone.
    The lies are gone.

    Tempting fate and losing
    Friends along the way I loved *** love you Kim **

    No regrets
    I'm standing
    with a needle in my heart -
    Needle in my heart.
    Needle in my heart.
    Needle in my heart.

    You'll never know!
    My life means everything!
    Still I scream because,
    There's nothing left to do until the end!

    The world goes on,
    With all that I've become!
    And still I scream inside.
    For all the pain I've taken hasn't changed!

    Nothing's changed at all.
    The truth is like a chain.
    Heaven's calling me,
    The place that I belong!

    Killing pain!
    Killing pain!

    Close my eyes a million faces
    Get inside my mind.
    Take a breath and fill my troubled
    Soul with all mankind.

    I’m killing pain -
    Killing pain.
    I'm killing pain,
    Killing pain!

    You'll never know!
    My life means everything!
    And still I scream because,
    There’s nothing left to do until the end!

    The world goes on.
    With all that I've become.
    And still I scream inside.
    For all the pain I've taken hasn't changed...

    *** The needle (your drug) talks now***

    The man in black
    I'm coming back to spew my evil hate!
    My crown of horns and bloody thorns
    I'll dig up what you fear!

    I am the shape that's in your room that watches over you!
    I am the needle in your heart - your disillusioned God!

    I am God, I am fate, I am all the sins you make, yeah! – hate!
    I am black, I am white, I am the blood upon the knife, yeah! – hate!

    Since time began I made a vow to drag you underground!
    To steal your soul of purity and watch you waste away.

    I am pure, I am right; I'm the God that makes you fight, yeah! – hate!
    I am life, I am death, I will steal your final breath, yeah! – hate!

    I prey upon your broken dreams your weakness gives me strength!
    I'm laughing at your silent screams I'll crush you with my hate!

    Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

    *** Calm down, back to reality… (recovery) ***

    You take it all!
    And face the fear that's here!
    Until the Silent Screams,
    Leaves you with no choice to carry on.
    You'll never fall!
    When all is said and done,
    The only Scream is here,
    The journey never ends - it's just begun...

    The lies that never learned,
    The needles in my heart
    And things will never change
    So every time I scream I'm killing pain.

    I’M KILLING PAIN!!!!!!!!!

    *** FIN (end) ***

    There is a trsansition here, if you catch it.
    I think this shows you what your drug of choice is thinking and how it CAN control you…
    But it’s up to you to kill IT, and CARRY ON.

    We're (addicts) all in pain. From the time we are born until the time we die we will continue to be in pain. We are in pain when we use, that's why we use, and we are in even more pain in recovery.

    But it's up to us if we let our addictions keep hold of us.

    Are you, going to let it control you? Hold you back? Destroy your life? or are you going to FIGHT!?

    FIGHT!
