Heard of the rule for children, "Be seen not heard"? I'm simply exploring the distortion.

No Air Will Pass in Between My Lips

Be seen
I'll do my best
Stay unheard
Is this a test?

Silence is your friend
My voice is my enemy?
To our will you must bend
Why, why should I?

Your desires will be provided
If I remain unheard but seen?
Yes, so be still, behave
My heart remains divided...

You are not given choice
I refuse! I will not bend!
Lost will be the sound of your voice
I have my own mind, my will!

To speak is a forfeited right
You can't take freedom from me...
Silence, get out of my sight!
I'll never let this be...

Hello, is there anyone there?
Mama, papa, I'm over here.
Please. Where is everyone?
Mama, papa, can't you hear?

Be seen
I'll do my very best
Stay unheard
Will pass, my lips, no air, in between
