Queensryche – Breaking The Silence lyrics

They told me to run, but just how far?
Can I go wearing the black mask of fear?
The hate in my eyes always gives me away
The tension building slowly
Now I lost everything I had in you
Nothing we shared means a thing
Without you close to me
I can't live without you

Breaking the silence of the night
can't you hear me screaming?
I look for your face in the neon light
You never answer me

Theres no direction to my stare
No more flame burning in my heart anymore
Quiet, I keep it to myself
Until the sun sets slowly
I hear your voice in the evening rain calling
Nothing will keep us apart
No more lies and fear
Theres no end to our story

Breaking the silence of the night
can't you hear me screaming?
I look for your face in the neon light
You never answer
I could make all the wrong seem right
If you were by my side
Id gather all the tears you cried
And hide them deep underground

Can't look back, its just a waste of time
can't erase this hate from my eyes

Breaking the silence of the night
Through the streets I'm screaming
Looking for you in the neon light
Why don't you answer me?
Breaking the silence with my cries
can't you hear me screaming?
We could make all this wrong seem right
But you never answer me

    @childofdarkness no, if you listen to the rest of the album, you would have known that it's about a man who gets brainwashed and sent to kill the woman that he loves (and who also loves him). He knows that she is dead but can't remember if he was the one who killed her. He is still traumatized that she is dead and keeps forgetting that she is. He is now trying (and failing) to forget about her.
