Silent All These Years Lyrics

Excuse me, but can I be you for a while?
The dog won't bite if you sit real still
I've got the antichrist in the kitchen
yelling at me again
Yeah, I can hear that
Been saved again by the garbage truck
Got something to say, you know, but...

    This is a song about abuse. It is for anyone who has endured abuse. Not just domestic abuse but child abuse. Anyone who was abused as a child understands that our voice is inside but it is silenced by the cowardly adult abusers. I relate to this song because i was abused by two adult sibling sand both parents but i never lost my voice and it is powerful!
