I haven’t tried any of these methods, so I can’t say exactly how well they work. If you’re feeling adventurous, go ahead and test them out, and feel free to share your experience with the rest of us here.

Can’t even shout, can’t even cry.

The Gentlemen are coming by.

Looking in windows, knocking on doors.

They need to take seven and they might take yours.

Can’t call to Mom, can’t say a word.

You’re gonna die screaming but you won’t be heard.
