In the darkness, in the vastness
the quiet - it is a canvas
so be still; stillness speaks.

I'm not waiting on any god there
I'm not sending up any prayer
I am still because stillness speaks.


When the fury blows fast around you
there is one word to always ground you
It is joy; joy will speak.

And the hateful, they may shout louder
but to their judgments they are bound
So be joy; joy will speak.


In the darkness, in the blackness
your kindness, it is a candle
so be kind; kindness speaks

And the hateful, they may shout louder
but to their judgment, they are bound
so be kind, kindness speaks.


So be kind; kindness speaks.
Be joy because joy will speak.
Be still; stillness speaks.
