They heard her voice, more like a noise

From the other side of the brick wall

Screams: muffled echoes

Scratches: broken nails

Cries: thousand tears

There in her throat lives a spider

That climbs up with every nightly scream

And weaves its sticky web in her mouth

Trapping her voice

To silence her, to erode her

And all she lives for is

The choir sung by the bricks

Screams: muffled echoes

Scratches: broken nails

Cries: thousand tears
