about

After his passing, Neil's spirit visited me to reach out to others to prevent more unnecessary deaths.
It invites us to feel deeply about those that have left us whilst reminding us about the waves in life & to communicate our feelings...

This is dedicated to all who have survived the black dog.

lyrics

Silence (Waves of Life)
© Nathan Kaye 2002

Spoken word intro:
We go through the waves of life.
We go through the up waves. The good times.
We go through the bad times. The down waves.
Nothing lasts.
The good times don’t last. The bad times don’t last.
It’s the cycles of nature.
Sometimes, when some of us are in those low waves, those low times, they can forget that the good times are coming back, like my friend Neil, my friend Pat.
So I find it really important to say that we must communicate how we’re feeling inside.
A problem shared is a problem halved….


Verse 1:
Neil, my friend,
What made you feel so bad that you had to make it end?
Neil, my friend,
What made you feel so sad that you couldn’t bend?

Pre-chorus:
Did you have to break?
Did you have to break?

Chorus:
Silence is not the way,
Silence is not the way,
Silence is not the way,
Lean on me,
Lean on someone today.

Verse 2:
Neil, my friend,
What message were you trying to send?
Neil, my friend,
What made you feel so bad? So sad.

Pre-chorus:
Did you have to break?
Did you have to break?

Chorus:
Silence is not the way,
Silence is not the way,
Silence is not the way,
Lean on me,
Lean on someone today

Pre-chorus:
Did you have to break?
Did you have to break?

Chorus:
Silence is not the way,
Silence is not the way,
Silence is not the way,
Lean on me,
Lean on someone today.
Today. Today.

Neil, my friend, we miss you.
Kneel, my friend, before the altar of your mind.
