The Silence
The Accidentals Lyrics


We sat beneath the stars
At a fire and played our new guitars
And I wondered how long this was gonna last
Because picture perfect memories
Just come with all those tougher things
And pain's the best reminder of your past
I watched the meteors fall
On a world that hardly cared at all
Leaving silver trails of dust across the sky
Of indigo blue that matched my mood
And with constellations for tattoos
And I watched them fade away and quickly die
So many theories wrong and soon disproved
So many ideas lost among the feud
So many conversations that are sadly misconstrued
And lost among debate and needless violence
We need the silence
We walked in a haunted place
With tattered walls and empty space
And a musty smell that drenched the nighttime air
Neither of us said a word
And we waited till we heard the birds
And realized not once had we ever been scared
So many theories wrong and soon disproved
So many ideas lost among the feud
So many conversations that are sadly misconstrued
And lost among debate and needless violence
We need the silence
I saw my grandpa's mind
Fly away and leave some bits behind
That made him smile with each time that they appeared
I wonder if he feels the pain
But it seems he never will complain
Whenever his whole family is near
So many theories wrong and soon disproved
So many ideas lost among the feud
So many conversations that are sadly misconstrued
And lost among debate and needless violence
We need the silence

We sat beneath the stars
At a fire and played our new guitars
And I wondered how long this was gonna last
Because picture perfect memories
Just come with all those tougher things
And pain’s the best reminder of your past
I watched the meteors fall
On a world that hardly cared at all
Leaving silver trails of dust across the sky
Of indigo blue that matched my mood
And with constellations for tattoos
And I watched them fade away and quickly die
So many theories wrong and soon disproved
So many ideas lost among the feud
So many conversations that are sadly misconstrued
And lost among debate and needless violence
We need the silence
We walked in a haunted place
With tattered walls and empty space
And a musty smell that drenched the nighttime air
Neither of us said a word
And we waited till we heard the birds
And realized not once had we ever been scared
So many theories wrong and soon disproved
So many ideas lost among the feud
So many conversations that are sadly misconstrued
And lost among debate and needless violence
We need the silence
I saw my grandpa’s mind
Fly away and leave some bits behind
That made him smile with each time that they appeared
I wonder if he feels the pain
But it seems he never will complain
Whenever his whole family is near
So many theories wrong and soon disproved
So many ideas lost among the feud
So many conversations that are sadly misconstrued
And lost among debate and needless violence
We need the silence
