Sometimes when the world runs down

I get quiet

Standing on the sandy ground

With my back against the veil of sound

You may see your own reflection

Deep within my eyes

When I'm quiet


Sometimes when the talkers talk

I get quiet

Caught up in a mental block

With my body in a state of shock

You may think your wheels are turning

You may be surprised

When I'm quiet


All I want is just a little...

All I need is just a little...

Or maybe I'm wrong


Sometimes when the world caves in

I get quiet

Skating on an ice so thin

That there's never time to shoot to win

You may think your aim is perfect

You may think you're wise

When I'm quiet




Sometimes on a single note

I get quiet

Were those really words I wrote?

Did a single thought succeed to float?

You may think your lifeboat's waiting

But you may be capsized

When I'm quiet
