Keep asking why for
But the blades and shards
of ideas to disregard
The silence of tomorrow will bring you
You can rebottle and escape every thought
But the ideas stamped your way
Are just naked parades
The silence of tomorrow, today you
You can live waiting for a meaning
But the bullets tattooed with ink
Tell you no one for you will think
The silence of tomorrow, is at best: seeming. *
