Is there such a thing?
The carpet could be screaming for all we know.
Our socks could be praying for mercy.
We act like everything is trying to silence us
We blame doors, padding, muzzles
It’s not like many are trying to speak up
We have families, you see
People to hurt
Dreams to set ablaze
They have us quite choked on fear
Our volume turned to mute
Our choices turned to disregard
They’ve taken our vocal cords
Buried them in the cellar
While they feast on Just Corpses
No one behind the curtain
No one soundproofing our eyes
But I bet that’s the carpet’s fault
Hushing our footsteps.
