    Silence Me

    Silence me,
    Before my voice gives me away,
    I shall be found out,
    By what I'd have to say,
    Cover this mouth,
    Before my brutal words escape,
    I shall be disowned,
    Cast out to meet my fate.
    Quieten this beast,
    The roar of vengeance feels too strong,
    To keep within,
    I'm screaming as I bite my tongue,
    Hold me down,
    Before I stride out and declare,
    The bitter truth,
    That will lead to such despair.
