The Beths – Silence Is Golden Lyrics

The Beths – Silence Is Golden Lyrics

I wish that I could freeze time
Go to the wild
Soak up the quiet
Til I’m dripping wet with it
Then I would drive home
Go to my room
Wring myself out
That would be the end of it
Instead it’s white noise
Sufferingly loud
It’s wearing me down
I’m up to my ears in it
It’s like a wave break
Into my head
Again and again
How are you not hearing it

The sound, the sound, the sound, the sound, the sound, the sound, the sound, the sound
I’d burn the city to the ground to turn it down

Silence is golden, is golden, it’s golden
Silence is golden, is golden, it’s golden

Like a flock of birds flung
Out of the trees
Into the sky
Any sound will set me off
I’m gonna hurl now
Strapped to my seat
And into the ride
Somebody please let me off
Maybe I’ll break
Just shatter, disperse
Like cracks in a glass
And never hold a drink again
Hey there’s a feedback
Making it worse
A million hertz
I can hear the ring again

The sound, the sound, the sound, the sound, the sound, the sound, the sound, the sound
I’d burn the city to the ground to turn it down

Silence is golden, is golden, it’s golden
Silence is golden, is golden, it’s golden
Silence is golden, is golden, it’s golden
Silence is golden, is golden, it’s golden

It’s building to a siren screaming
It’s building to a jet plane engine
Building to 6am construction
It’s building and building and building until I can’t function at all

Silence is golden, is golden, it’s golden
Silence is golden, is golden, it’s golden
