A question well served is silence like a fever
A voice never heard or a message with no receiver
Pray, they won't ask behind the stained glass
There's always one more mask

Has man been a victim of his woman, of his father?
If he elects not to bother will he suffocate their faith?
Desperate to fall behind the great wall
That separates us all

When there is reason, tonight I'm awake
When there's no answer, arrive the silent man
If there is balance, tonight he's awake
If they have to suffer, there lies the silent man

Sin without deceivers, a God with no believers
I could sail by on the winds of silence
And maybe they won't notice
But this time I think it'd be better if I swim

When there is reason, tonight I'm awake
When there's no answer, arrive the silent man
If there is balance, tonight he's awake
But if they have to suffer, there lies the silent man
There lies the silent man
