Silent Shout
The Knife Lyrics


Never knew this could happen to me
I know now fragility
I know there's people who I haven't told
I know of people who are getting old

Wish I could speak in just one sweep
What you are and what you mean to me
Instead I mumble randomly
You stand by and enlighten me

In a dream I lost my teeth again
Calling me woman and half man
Yes in a dream all my teeth fell out
A cracked smile and a silent shout
A cracked smile and a silent shout

If I explain it once thoroughly
He'll have you later 'cause it's never free
You were at the gigantic spree
I caught a glimpse now it haunts me
I caught a glimpse now it haunts me

This whole album was a revelation during a weird year for teenage me. It still goes in rotation when I'm feeling certain ways. This song is s monolith of brilliant dark electronic music.

I discovered The Knife at 17, through this song, 12 years ago. Still my favorite music project (maybe sharing the top spot with Portishead).
In my opinion, some of the most original lyrics out there, one of the smartest uses of an eclectic repertoire of styles, always looking not only for new ways of making music, but also for new ways of understanding how music can participate on the path to a more plural and united society.
Your songs have accompanied me in some of the most important stages and events of my life.
Thank you.

I love YouTube journeys. Watching Mental As Anything live it up one minute, Nina Hagen African reggae the next and ending up on this wondrous beast of a track and now it's stupid o'clock in the morning and I no longer want to sleep.

I remember back when I heard this song for the first time, I was mesmerized and couldn't stop listening to it all over again and again. I immediately knew that it would be a legendary song!

Ivan Kramskoi
