The same as last time, except this time try to use five (5) of the pairs in your lines. Remember, they do not have to be great, the idea is to just broaden your use of language.

Nature believes it is psychic
The beach predicts its own erosion
Mountains teleport us to the moon
Away from the balcony energizing the commotion
The oaken whiskey endows our courage
On trails phasing through the wispy forest
The sunburn resurrects our longing
Cooling as the evening sores above scourge
While music embiggens the primal songing

Really cool pairings. One interesting thing is that you transformed β€œpunch” into a noun and replaced the verb with β€œhit”. I think that punch would have worked well there with fewer words needed: β€œSilence powerfully punches you”. I love the birds protecting your ears with song. That is a great image. I kind of want to steal it! ha. Beer tearing down insecurity is also very interesting because beer is a depressant, so we usually would look for things more low key than tear. You did really well here!

All interesting ideas which could be expanded upon and moulded into lyrics. The punch of silence has a particular impact, that feeling when you are hurt by someone not being there for you or not saying what you want them to say perhaps. Great work!
