What tongueless ghost of sin crept through my curtains?.My family don't seem so familiar / And my enemies all know my name.You better get on your knees and pray / Panic is on the wayMy eyes are dead / My throat's like a black hole / And if there's a God / Would he give another chancer / An hour to sing for his soul?"
As though a tongueless nightingale should swell Her throat in vain, and die, heart-stifled, in her dell.john keats
One good deed dying tongueless Slaughters a thousand waiting upon that. Our praises are our wages.william shakespeare
When the hounds of spring are on winter's traces, The mother of months in meadow or plain Fills the shadows and windy places With lisp of leaves and ripple of rain; And the brown bright nightingale amorous Is half assured for Itylus, For theThracian ships and the foreign faces, The tongueless vigil and all the pain.algernon charles swinburne
