Lyrics[]

Here comes a wave meant to wash me away
A tide that is taking me under
Swallowing sand left with nothing to say
My voice drowned out in the thunder

But I can't cry
And I can't start to crumble
Whenever they try to shut me or cut me down

I can't stay silent
Though they wanna keep me quiet
And I tremble
When I try it

All I know...
Is I won't...
Go speechless

Written in stone
Every rule, every word
Centuries old and unbending
"Stay in your place"
"Better seen and not heard"
Well, now that story is ending

Cause I,
I cannot start to crumble!
So come on and try
Try to shut me and cut me down!

I won't be silenced!
You can't keep me quiet!
Won't tremble when you try it!
All I know is I won't go speechless!
Speechless!!

Let the storm in!
I cannot be broken!
No, I won't live unspoken!
Cause I know that I won't go speechless!

Try to lock me in this cage!
I won't just lay me down and die!
I will take these broken wings
And watch me burn across the sky!
Hear the echo saying I...

Won't be silenced!!
Though you wanna see me tremble when you try it,
And I know is I won't go speechless!
Speechless!!

Cause I'll breathe when they try to suffocate me!
Don't you underestimate me!
Cause I know that I won't go speechless!
All I know is I won't go speechless!
Speechless!!!

Here comes a wave meant to wash me away
A tide that is taking me under
Swallowing sand, left with nothing to say
My voice drowned out in the thunder

But I won't cry
And I won't start to crumble
Whenever they try to shut me or cut me down

I won't be silenced!
You can't keep me quiet!
Won't tremble when you try it!
All I know is I won't go speechless!

Cause I'll breathe when they try to suffocate me!
Don't you underestimate me!
Cause I know that I won't go speechless!

Written is stone
Every rule, every word
Centuries old and unbending
Stay in your place
Better seen and not heard
But now that story is ending

Cause I,
I cannot start to crumble
So come on and try
Try to shut me and cut me down

I won't be silenced!
You can't keep me quiet!
Won't tremble when you try it
All I know is I won't go speechless!

Let the storm in
I cannot be broken
No, I won't live unspoken
Cause I know that I won't go speechless!
