Silent silhouettes

Just a song that wants to help create a separation between the good and bad.


Shooting stars are like the wishing wells of the sky
Cause if you look close, you might see some tonite
And questions asked are like, questions solved
Cause when she asks for love love answers her
And foolish games are played when there are too many rules
We were young at once trying to find the truth

Silhouettes survive through a darker disquise
Tracing maps of light where are bodies collide
Words fade away, like oxygen. Some say theyre done well I Im ready to begin
Cause evidence will prove that there is so much more to lose
We were young at once searching for the clues

Just creasing the corners, tearing the lines at the fold that separates
these words that define us, they are keeping the boxes closed so that they don't have to see us change into
who we are
