You know that ringing in your ears?
It isn’t silence.
It’s a cause of listening to music to loud
Or surrounding ourselves with crowds
Or going to clubs or somewhere busy
‘Cause if we take a minute to ourselves
Silence is scary, isn’t it?
That’s why we’ve all developed a ringing in our ears trying to avoid it.
We’ll be a society that,
In an attempt to drown out anxiety
Will become deaf to anything relevant.
Slowly, we’ll stop listening…
‘Cause problems keep whispering.
And if we only keep the noise on
Maybe we won’t hear them.
We don’t let ourselves pause anymore.
If we talk, we don’t stop,
We don’t let the conversation drop.
Silence is awkward and awkward is bad
And bad isn’t something I wanna focus on.
So we fumble and mumble like infants.
In all actuality, are we any different?
It’s our distraction…
And only for a moment’s satisfaction...
And have you noticed
People talk louder when they’re defending themselves.
So are we all defending ourselves 24/7?
Because people are always talking loud.
Inside voices must not be allowed,
Because the moment we quiet down
We hear it.
The lull of dubiety.
A creeping anxiety.
Hear that ringing?
I think one of the best things I've started to do is stay quiet and process things, even if that means not listening to music in my car for a few minutes, because noise itself makes it hard to hear sometimes. 562Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡafkaphalOY
