The meaning of "SilentSong":
As a musician, I have often found music to be a means of expressing the otherwise inexpressible. As the great Stevie Wonder put it, "music is a language we all understand." Through it, one can express a thought, feeling, concept, or conviction in a "language" that reaches all kinds of people on non-linguistic or even non-intellectual levels.
