The Lyrics

You expect
A normal teen
You assumed
And the rage is boilin'
I've been beggin'
For some s'rene si-lence in this household (for some inner peace)
Fam-i-ly (for some inner peace) in this household
(for some inner peace) sister (for some inner peace)
I'll try not to lose my cool, while you're here
Try not to lose my cool, 'cause it's not pretty
I've been beggin'
For some s'rene si-lence in this household (for some inner peace)
Hey people, in this household (for some inner peace)
Yeah (for some inner peace)
The honor will come, fam'ly glory
But for these wishes, strong focus, is key
You must give me my own time
In my bedroom (for some inner peace) (for some inner peace) (for
some inner
peace) (for some inner peace)
Please listen (for some inner peace) (for some inner peace) (for
some inner peace)
(for some inner peace)
In my bedroom (for some inner peace)
Yeah (for some inner peace)
Ooh your kind hearts
Gave me a bright day
But guess what?
I've made my own way
See, all I want in my life
Is give it to me when you are home (si, si, si, si)
Hey people (si, si, si, si)
Give it to me ( silence, for some inner peace )
When you are home, now ( for some inner peace )
S-I-L-E-N-C-E
Look how cheerful I can be
S-I-L-E-N-C-E
Almost, near happy
Oh (chuck it to me) (chuck it to me)((chuck it to me)(chuck it to me)
Some s'rene si-lence(chuck it to me)(chuck it to me)(chuck it to
me)(chuck it to
me)
Fam-i-ly (for some inner peace)
Some s'rene si-lence (for some inner peace)
Finally (for some inner peace)
It is comin' (for some inner peace)
I'm dyin' from mouths runnin'
Cause' I've been tryin'
(si,si,si,si)'lence
When you get here
Or you might come in(silence, for some inner peace)
Discover I'm gone (for some inner peace)
I need to have (for some inner peace)
Some s'rene si-lence (for some inner peace)
