Lyric discussion by mcwryter 

This song portrays an introvert, lonely person who is:

  • highly sensitive ("can hear the cry Of the leaf on a tree as it falls to the ground") and
  • extremely fearful ("always afraid of the smile of the clown")

I find the instrumental interlude particularly interesting. It intensely contrasts both with the music of the vocal sections and with any idea of "silence" in general. In this way it makes us hear what's behind the veil of his silence:

  • The erratic rhythm (in places) indicates what emotional turbulences he is going through.
  • The beautiful, fast horn dominated section emphasizes how powerful and overwhelming he experiences his emotions.

@mcwryter I like this interpretation. It closely matches what I thought of listening to this song. It's a powerful tune. The interlude is interesting. It elicits strength. As if he feels very comfortable in his silence, but towards the end it drops back down to a lower vibration.

Very interesting song.
