Silent screams

from Gil Scott-Heron – Home Is Where The Hatred Is Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Gil eerily conveying the inner-demons of drug addiction.

Also, in the song, if you listen at a only-hear-it-if-you’re-high-and-using-headphones level (I apologise, its a jacked saying, props to whoever coined it because it’s awesome) you can hear a slight echo in the background (so not so silent screams but you can see what he was trying to do).
