M: I am trying to learn your language

A: speaking is always hard

M: that has been my experience

A: for others, listening is hard

M: it hasn’t been a matter of volume except when i dream

A: the grim reamer again?

M: when i dream i can’t scream

A: how loud should you be now?

M: not very loud

A: everyone else is very quiet right now

M: do you think it is because they have nothing to say?

A: no, they’ve come to listen to us

M: i have something to say

A: qu’est-ce que c’est?

M: i want to say all that i have never said
