Lyrics

Silence Is Ashlee

Silence is golden unless there's a lie in the air
Then someone should speak up to cover the sound of the truth
If nobody listens we all can pretend it's not there
But six billion pairs of ears can be a hard thing to refute
If you take my hand, I'll try hard to understand

Oh, Ashlee, what are you saying?
Those who believe you aren't the only ones paying
What if you need me, will you know how to call?
What if you opened your mouth to speak, and no one could hear you at all?

Tina is talking, but no one is pulling her string
Zoltar won't speak though we've dropped fifty cents in the hole
No one gets too upset confronted by these little things
We've learned how not to expect too much from objects that don't have a soul
If you'd share your pain, I'd try hard to help explain

Oh, Ashlee, what are you saying?
The kiddies can't follow the notes you're playing
What if you need me, will you know how to call?
What if you opened your mouth to speak, and no one could hear you -

Wind her up, put her down, watch her go, she'll do the rest
Why don't you wind her up, put her down, where she'll go is anybody's guess
But men have died for less

Oh, Ashlee, what are you saying?
The gig should be over, but mother's still praying
What if you need me, will you know how to call?
What if you opened your mouth to speak, and no one could hear you at all?
