Car Radio

  • I ponder of something great
    My lungs will fill and then deflate
    They fill with fire, exhale desire
    I know it's dire my time today

    I have these thoughts, so often I ought
    To replace that slot with what I once bought
    'Cause somebody stole my car radio
    And now I just sit in silence

    Sometimes quiet is violent
    I find it hard to hide it
    My pride is no longer inside
    It's on my sleeve
    My skin will scream reminding me of
    Who I killed inside my dream
    I hate this car that I'm driving
    There's no hiding for me
    I'm forced to deal with what I feel
    There is no distraction to mask what is real
    I could pull the steering wheel

    I have these thoughts, so often I ought
    To replace that slot with what I once bought
    'Cause somebody stole my car radio
    And now I just sit in silence

    I ponder of something terrifying
    'Cause this time there's no sound to hide behind
    I find over the course of our human existence
    One thing consists of consistence
    And it's that we're all battling fear
    Oh dear, I don't know if we know why we're here
    Oh my, too deep, please stop thinking
    I liked it better when my car had sound

    There are things we can do
    But from the things that work there are only two
    And from the two that we choose to do
    Peace will win and fear will lose
    It is faith and there's sleep
    We need to pick one please because
    Faith is to be awake
    And to be awake is for us to think
    And for us to think is to be alive
    And I will try with every rhyme
    To come across like I am dying
    To let you know you need to try to think

    I have these thoughts, so often I ought
    To replace that slot with what I once bought
    'Cause somebody stole my car radio
    And now I just sit in silence

    And now I just sit in silence
    And now I just sit
    And now I just sit in silence
    And now I just sit in silence
    And now I just sit in silence
    And now I just sit

    I ponder of something great
    My lungs will fill and then deflate
    They fill with fire, exhale desire
    I know it's dire my time today

    I have these thoughts, so often I ought
    To replace that slot with what I once bought
    'Cause somebody stole my car radio
    And now I just sit in silence Writer/s: TYLER JOSEPH
