lyrics

It’s like I have no mind to speak anymore.
My lips are stapled shut, your ears are sore.
What am I supposed to say?
The words have all been ripped away,
and now I’m picking up the pieces off the floor.

So can you help me find my sordid tongue?
It broke off when my song could not be sung.
I heard it might have harmed
and so I had to be disarmed
and now there’s an empty hole on the wall
where it was hung.

So now I’m screaming
but the sound just doesn’t come.
I’d like to help you up but now the
rope has come undone.
I’m standing up here helpless
but not harming anyone,
and all that I have left to say is…

I’m sorry if you questioned what you believe.
You shut me up but still my songs won’t leave.
My radio was loud enough to
be heard on your cloud
and now it’s up to you if you want to receive.

So now I’m screaming
but the sound just doesn’t come.
I’d like to help you up but now the
rope has come undone.
I’m stranded up here helpless
but not harming anyone,
and all that I have left to say is…

…nothing.

Since then I’ve played the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media. I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
