Breaking Silence

Janis Ian

Come into my solitude
though I weary be
Come into my tenderness
Dream along with me
Listen to the whispers sing
Listen to the singer shout
Come into my solitude
Me and my big mouth

Thoughts unspoken, thoughts unsaid
Lies of hearth and home
Children broken on the bed
and left to lie alone
Things you talk around
Scum you choke on down
Come into my solitude
Step on sacred ground

We were speaking
of values and violence
Breaking silence

Fathers who are lovers to
the daughters that they own
Mothers who don't leave a child
a single safety zone
People so unhinged
that death is much too kind
Come into my solitude
Step over that line

...Thought I was the only one
...Thought I was the only one
...Thought I was the only, only one

We were speaking
of values and violence
Breaking silence

Come into my solitude
Welcome to the wheel
Come into this wonderland
of wounds that will not heal
Walls that do not speak
Steps that do not sound
Come into my solitude
Burn this building down
