Oh Mary of Silence,
You pick my heart with a smile
Oh sweet Mary,
Come inside for a while
Help me get a hold on you,
Or I look in the night
I thought of myself beside you
Take me into your skin

Oh, Sweet Mary of Silence
Oh, Sleeping Mary of Silence

We have a steady confusion,
You're looking at fear
It doesn't seem like the first time,
You walked out in a hurry

Oh, Sweet Mary of Silence
Oh, Sleeping Mary of Silence

I look in , In your window,
To check my head in your pane
My last thoughts , they come to me,
I can't take the pain

Oh, Sweet Mary of Silence
Oh, Sleeping Mary of Silence

Help me walk with you, To the sky that we see
Shuddering in myself, in-my-self
Oh where
Oh when
Oh well
Sweet Mary of Silence
Sweet Mary of Silence
Sweet Mary of Silence
Sweet Mary of Silence

    General CommentMan, I was hoping someone would have left a comment about this one.

    Is it about feeling tempted to drugs? There's that line "I can't take the pain" which sounds like a need to feel the pleasurable and numbing effects of drugs. "Take me into your skin" sounds like consuming the drug.

    Who is Mary? Does anyone know whether Mary is often used as a nickname referring to a particular drug? Sure, I know there's simple Mary Jane, but this sounds like something more potent than that. Heroin, perhaps?
