I didn't tell them how I felt
I didn't tell them a word
I kept it all inside my shell
this shell I cannot even afford.

I kept my face solid and straight
when I was screaming aloud.
I was feeling dreadfully lonely
standing amidst this crowd.

I didn't tell them anything
not a whisper- not a word.
They're probably lies that you believe
that you believe you're heard.

I've lived my life in this cave
where I hide with all my pain.
And I might live like this forever
where loneliness only reign...
