"cause this was not the kinda girl that he was gonna take home, or be with in public, you see what I mean?"
Put a bunch of humans on the planet together and they’ll find a way to screw it all up. Here we are, all living together, breathing the same air, sharing space, and as time goes by we get closer and closer to one another. Physically, at least. Sometimes it seems we get farther and farther from one another as the world gets smaller. Fear kicks in because most people just can’t deal with the differences, or I prefer to say the “uniqueness” of people. We come in all shapes and sizes, shades and colors, and depending upon where we spend most of our time, we tend to also come in a variety of different “points of view”. Culture comes into the equation and so we see things differently, as well, even if we are literally looking at the same thing. Especially when it comes to each other. The thing is, most of what we feel, from what we observe, is taught to us from a very early age, and most people never get past that. You’ve already been conditioned to feel certain ways about certain people and certain situations, and that’s it, you’re formed. You never had a chance. You want an example? OK, you’re out here in the world, living on your own, got a good job and you meet this girl. This beautiful girl, just as nice as she could be, and you start hangin’ out. You start seeing each other every night after work, always at home in your apartment, so I guess I should say you start “hangin’ IN”. So this becomes an everyday thing, goes on for over a year and it’s just real Gooooooood! But something starts to change, because now this girl starts to want to go to the movies, or maybe go out to eat in a restaurant instead of ordering in all the time. She even would love to meet your family sometime. Uh oh, she’s falling in love with you and YOUR feelings change immediately. Interesting how you’ve never been seen in public together, none of your friends or family know anything about this girl you’ve been with EVERY NIGHT for the past year, seems kinda “hush hush”. What’s up with that? Doesn’t matter because you end it as fast as it started. As if the relationship never happened. Oh yea, the woman, the other PERSON involved with you over this past year, is left dazed, devastated and completely confused. She’s left with no real explanation, just lingering questions, and a ton of hurt.
I guess I’ll leave it at that. This trailer is called “Be Quiet”, and I guess it’s about how we torture ourselves in this life. How we can’t get past a lot of bullshit, even when it comes to love. And how we find it hard to deal with these demons. How we would prefer to keep it “quiet”. Keep it “deep down”. “The baby’s sleeping”
Be Quiet [the baby's sleeping]
[music and lyrics by WILK]

[verse1]
My friend found a girl, looking for a long time
Soft brown skin, she was fine as she could be
Big green eyes, a body that could kill you
Beautiful brown curly hair, the kind that makes you stupid

You get the picture, you see what I mean?
Can you envision her bumpin’ down the street?
You understand, could I be more clear?
To top it off the girl was real I’m talkin’ pure love

[refrain]
Let’s get to the point of the story
something that my friend just doesn’t like to talk about
she finally put it out there that we could make a family
sometimes lookin’ in the mirror’s kinda ugly

[verse 2]
Every night together, always his apartment
Blinds down, ringer on the phone is off, it’s lockdown
Secret rendezvous, all about me and you
She would fall deeper, he told her he loved her
He kept it to himself, like Romeo and Juliet
The way he talked about her I just knew that he would keep her around him
He said that at night, she’d astound him
She was everything that he could ever, ever ask for

You get the picture, you see what I mean?
Can you envision her bumpin’ down the street?
You understand, could I be more clear?
And did I mention the girl was real I’m talkin’ pure love

[refrain]
Let’s get back to the part of the story
The part that my friend just doesn’t like to talk about
she finally put it out there that we could be together
he told her to whisper, his secret’s getting’ louder
he’s getting’ kinda nervous
walls are getting’ closer

[chorus]
Be Quiet, Be Quiet, Be Quiet
The baby’s sleeping

[verse 3]
He tried to keep it cool, add a little distance
Except that he was feeling like he wanted to be closer
He’s stopping, he’s blocking ‘cause deep down he knew
That this was not the kind of girl that he was gonna take home
or be with in public, you see what I mean?
he can’t be seen with her out on the street
you understand, could I be more clear?
And did I mention the girl was real, I’m talkin’ pure love

[refrain]
Let’s get back to the point of the story
The part that my friend just doesn’t like to talk about
When she put it out there that this could be forever
Demons in my friends closet jumped outside
Got nowhere to hide
He had to break it off but he’ll never tell her why

[chorus]

[bridge]
She never had lunch with his father
She never went shopping with his mother
He said this is our little secret
He prayed everyday she would keep it
Demons in my friends closet jumped outside
Got nowhere to hide
I need to find the white girl
I meant to say the right girl
He told her to whisper, somebody’s gonna hear you
I wish I never met you
Ceiling’s gettin’ lower

[chorus]
