see i cut out my tongue for you,
offer up my silence and hope you will be gentle,
hope to coax out the good in there
see, i believe there’s good in there
and sometimes it needs a little coaxing
i’m no magician, see, just an open book
giving out parts of myself, hoping you
will read them;
see, i cut out my tongue for you.
i was hoping you would do the same.
