Lyrics

Don't try to say that you know
all my longest days and the risk
of being allowed to grow
older

for once all I'm asking
and I think it's well worth asking
just a little piece of your ear
without the drum

I'm tired of shouting
give me a white flag
and a hush

I'm tired of shouting
all your words, they
turn to dust

when I was a tadpole
and a puddle my sea
every cloud was a hurricane
every voice was a plea

though the storm clouds may linger
I begin to believe
in the power of silence
as the voices recede


I'm tired of shouting
give me a white flag
and a hush

I'm tired of shouting
all your words, they
turn to dust

time out, it's late, and your tales
disintigrate into the fire
one sound i hear
soft humdrum of the cricket choir

if you lay in the water
face up to the turpentine sky
you can learn about stillness
touch the ripples with a naked eye


I'm tired of shouting
give me a white flag
and a hush

I'm tired of shouting
all your words, they
turn to dust
