The Silent Ones

Screenshot (56)

Hush now, be quiet

You must be silent, mustn’t make a sound

Why? Oh darling, don’t be silly…

Because we are the silent people, we have no voice

We hide in the shadows, we know everybody’s secrets

But we can never tell them, for we cannot speak


Shhh, stop right there! You mustn’t speak!

You must make no noise, don’t touch the ground

Why? Oh, sweetie, don’t be a fool…

Because we are the silent people, we have no voice

We reside in the darkest deeps, we are awake when they are asleep

But we can never wake them, for we cannot touch the ground


Be still now, don’t move

You must be static, mustn’t fly

Why? Oh, honey, don’t be daft…

Because we are the silent people, we have no voice

Only a special one can save us from our plight, one human

But she won’t be born for a thousand years…


So we shall slumber on in our tears.
