lyrics

Have you ever heard the sound of nothing?
If you listen, ignore the din
You’ll find if you clear the crap from your mind
That nothing is the sound of nothing

He could feel it in his heart
He knew his time had come at last
The truth of it was there was nowhere to hide
He drew his last breath and he died!

He awoke on a cold grey slab
The audience a sea of masks
He choked and he gasped for some air
While the audience could only stare

They’d given him up for dead and yet
Here, he was alive once again
He looked at the crowd and the scar on his chest
He threw his head back he had survived!

Have you ever heard the sound of nothing?
The weeks would drag and wear him thin
He slowly came to realise
That nothing is the sound of nothing!

All the world is a stage and each man
And woman has a part they must bear
But at the end of the show, when in the mirror you stare
Will you pull your mask off and see there’s nothing there!
