Wink Tragic Kingdom

"Don't Speak" is a song by the American rock band No Doubt. It was released in 1996 as the 3rd single from the band's third studio album, Tragic Kingdom (1995).. Vocalist Gwen Stefani wrote the song about her bandmate and ex-boyfriend Tony Kanal shortly after he ended their 7-year relationship together..Before the music starts, at the beginning of the music video, there is a scene of Kanal picking a rotten fruit from a tree (these scenes are usually cut out when VH1 airs this video)..Tensions in the band had been running high, and they reportedly were on the verge of breaking up the day before they were scheduled to film the video. They decided to go ahead and film it as a form of "therapy"... is a fragile thing. Once earned, it affords us tremendous freedom. But once trust is lost, it can be impossible to recover. Of course the truth is, we never know who we can trust. Those we're closest to can betray us, and total strangers can come to our rescue. In the end, most people decide to trust only themselves...
