26 letters and I got nothing to say 
The whole English alphabet just gone to waste 

I won’t pick up the phone 
And waste your time tying up your line 

All you’re gonna hear from me is silence 
On the other side 

32 teeth and one strong little tongue 
Learned to bite it so I won’t do no wrong 
A sheath for a sword, a holster for a gun 
But one little spark, and your whole forest is gone 

I won’t pick up the phone 
And waste your time tying up your line 

All you’re gonna hear from me is silence 

When the time comes, I’ll call 
There’s a time to speak 
A time for war 
But right now I think I’ll hold my peace 

I won’t pick up the phone 
And waste your time tying up your line 

All you’re gonna hear from me is silence 
On the other side
