i try to talk
no sound comes out
am i on "mute"?
or have you tuned out?

in my world

nobody listens
nobody speaks
no one converses
isn't it bleak?

i'm one of those friends
that don't need to bond
i'm just there to help you
in return you act fond

nobody listens
nobody cares
i try to tell you
yet I don't dare

because if I say
how i feel left out
you'll be offended
you'll scream and shout

and then i'll shout back
and you'll hear me then
i'll yell out the things i've hidden
and only dared write in pen

then i won't be muted
you may listen then
but i'll loose the closest
thing i have to a friend
