about

I May Hear You Too is the second single from an ongoing concept album. It is also a continuation of the first single If You Hear My Voice. The song is a realisation that because of the tools we have all been given, everyone expects to be listened to and hence no one feels they need to listen to anybody else.

"We live in a silent film-like world. We contribute to so much noise that we cancel each other out and nothing is heard, nothing is truly felt anymore; we all talk but there is no voice coming out unless the intertitles (algorithms) will let you get through with your message and it's like an instant gratification that makes us feel valid for a while but it's all an illusion. " 

lyrics

Can you hear the echo in the woods again 
Throwing round reflections of the day 
Cross out the I's 
That's how sanity starts 
Touch my hand I'll show thee 
Look at me the other says 
Constant debris in the air 
We hope, we strive, we build it up inside 
Castles built on sand 
But tell me who's left listening 
Now 
Noise going out, nothing ever comes in 
Hitting branches of uprooted trees 
Who thought that we all must speak 
All coming out but... 
Anybody out there who knows 
(How to feel it in my bones) 
Who listens now 
Who cares the sky has twisted 
And lost its stars 
Echo wisdom of echo souls 
Thoughts are lost looking for a home 
Anybody out there who knows 
(how to feel it in my bones) 
Anybody out there who knows 
(I feel it in my throes) 
Anybody out there who knows 
(how to feel it at all) 
Who listens now 
All be quiet for a while 
I will pick a thought to grind 
And may it stay and halt the fight 
Who says more, enough, you tried 
We hope it will strive, we build it up inside 
Castles built on sand 
But tell me who's left listening 
Now 
Noise going out, nothing ever comes in  
Hitting branches of uprooted trees  
Who thought that we all must speak  
All coming out but...
