Liner Notes: 

With 50/90 coming to an end, I thought I'd put one more song up. I didn't reach any goals this year and still have songs unfinished, including collabs I hoped to get to. But with all the attention on the sexual assault issues and the #me too movement, I felt I had to post this song. Vocals need work but you get the idea.

Lyrics: 

I know you can hear me
You choose to ignore
I know you can see me
Though you turn your head once more

Can you hear my silent screams?
Can you feel me coming apart at the seams?

I know you're aware of me
You choose to avoid
I know you can feel my heart
And I know you're annoyed

But my tears fall in silence
Pleas for help fall on deaf ears
Am I losing you? Feeding my fears

Can you hear my silent screams?
Can you feel me coming apart at the seams?

I know my wounds
Sometimes gape and bleed
I know I push away
Exactly what I need

But my tears fall in silence
Pleas for help fall on deaf ears
I don't want to lose you
The thought feeds my fears

Can you hear my silent screams?
Can you feel me coming apart at the seams?

I don't know if you can love me
If you can understand
I don't know if I can love you
With all that love demands
I don't know if I can lose you
Can you just take my hand?

Can you hear my silent screams?



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
