Lyrics to Quiet:





Quiet, I am sleeping,


In here, we need a little hope


For years, I've been sleeping


Helpless, couldn't tell a soul





Be ashamed


Mess you've made


My eyes never forget, you see


Behind me





Silent metal mercies


Castrate boys to the bone


Jesus, are you listening


Up there, to anyone at all





We are the fossils, the relics of our time


Mutilate the meanings so they're easy to deny





Be ashamed


Of the mess you've made


My eyes never forget, you see


Behind me





Quiet, quiet


I am sleeping


Quiet, quiet


I am sleeping


Quiet, shut up


I don't trust you


Shut up, shut up


I can't hear you





Be ashamed


Of the mess you've made


My eyes never forget, you see


Behind me





Behind me, the grace of falling snow


Cover up everything you know


Come save me from the awful sound


Of nothing

From: Christine Balogh 








  QUIET- written by Billy Corgan       From: David


Balogh(dmb181@pop3.sierra.net)        performed by the Smashing Pumpkins





       This song is all power chords, so it's really easy to play.  I'm not


sure that this is 100% right, but it sounds right to me.





The riff after the weird intro goes like this:

 play this riff 12 times (8X under singing)
