The Lyrics

There is something you should know
About the monks of Apropos
They live their whole life without speaking
There's no crying and there's no weeping
And there's something that they've given up in life
Their right to fight
They took a vow of silence

For three years now no one has spoke
No one's told a single joke
And to think I did this willingly
There was no one ever forcing me
And now, I think that I will go insane
And who's to blame?
I took a vow of silence

Can't stop the voices in my brain
What is this silence s'posed to gain?
I'd say something but I would have to speak
They'd give me penance for at least a week
And now I, I've forgotten my own name
Well just the same
I took a vow of silence

And when I find myself alone
I wish I had myself a clone
Someone to do some talking to
Someone who shares my point of view
Someone who could bang my head against the wall
Cause after all
I took a vow of silence

What a fool I was to go
And join the monks of Apropos
I guess I'll have to play charades again
Who'd have thought that talking was a sin?
And how can I renege on this contract?
I have to act
Undo this vow of silence

I just can't take this silence!

Old joke: A man joins a monastery. The head monk tells him, "We do not speak. But once a year, on the anniversary of the day you joined, you will be allowed to say two words." First anniversary: "You may now say two words." "ROOMMATE GAY!" Second anniversary: "You may now say two words." "TOILET CLOGGED!" Third anniversary: "You may now say two words." "FOOD SUCKS!" Fourth anniversary: "You may now say two words." "BED HARD!" Fifth anniversary: "You may now say two words." "SCREW YOU!" Sixth anniversary: "You may now say two words." "I QUIT!" And the head monk says, "Good riddance! You've done nothing but complain since you got here!"

Hmm...reminds me of an AOL ad with the Carpehian monks surfing the Net...
