Hear the Child Scream

July 19, 2013

Where do you go when you’ve lost everything?

Do you find a way to try and make it again?

I don’t know, probably.

Why do I feel naked again?

Because everything that I believe

has been stripped away from me.

Strip me down and beat me again.

Spin me around and meet me again.

With those devilish cold eyes,

See me again.

I’m whittled down to my wit’s end.

Why can’t you hear me — when I’m screaming out for you.

Why can’t you love me — I might’ve loved you too.

Why do you beat me — Is it not enough for you

that I’ve lost everything — including sight of truth.

You make me lie, so you’ll believe.

You make me realize that I’m in need.

You bleed my heart, you scarred my mind,

You beat my soul till I go blind.

I’m just a child and I’m asking why.

You tell me it’s a crime to cry,

So I try but it hurts so much inside

When you’re taking everything away.

Robbed of my innocence. Robbed of my youth.

Robbed of my love and robbed of the truth.

You can kill a future — I’m living proof.

Why can’t you hear me — when I’m screaming out for you.

Why can’t you love me — I might’ve loved you too.

Why do you beat me — Is it not enough for you

that I’ve lost everything — including sight of truth.

These scars on my body, they can’t compare

to what’s going on inside of me.

I hear you scream I hear you say

I mean nothing, that’s ok.

Let me tell you something: I feel the same!

The weight is crushing, can you feel my pain?

Oh, fuck it! Well, I won’t cry anymore.

My heart is hard and my body’s sore.

I start to like when you’re using me.

I start to like when you’re abusing me.

You hate me — I hate you too!

You wanna kill me — I wanna kill you too!

Why can’t you hear me — when I’m screaming out for you.

Why can’t you love me — I might’ve loved you too.

Why do you beat me — Is it not enough for you

that I’ve lost everything — including sight of truth.

(Softer voice)

Where do you go when you’ve lost everything? Do you

find a way to try and make it again? I don’t know, what,

probably, why do I feel naked again.

***********************************

This song I wrote for that bitch who used to beat me, who made me tell lies so she’d stop, took everything from me, made me feel like less than shit. Once I started believing all the things she said, I couldn’t unbelieve. I’m stupid, I’m ugly, I’m worthless,

I AM NOTHNG.

She was right.
