She was confused and abused in this life
Emotional and violent moments
Seemed to take the longest time
Every single knockout dragout
Fight they ever had. Apologies and
Dignity denied he starts to
Laugh he starts to lie with
Suddenly psychotic eyes.
Every night she cried herself
to sleep she didn't recognize
Her own face in the mirror
Black & blue, so afraid
Intimidation like a child she
Hides away he would always
Try to justify what wasn't true
Justified black eye
Taken for granted she sleeps by
The phone waiting for a call
From him but it seems he's never
Coming home, 14 beers later
He is there without an answer
Once again she questions his
Lies he goes to bed with
No reply
Tomorrow morning different
Story and he'll be a different
Guy, he'll justify her black eye
With another lie. She packs her
bags in great temptation he's on
His knees again he cries a hug
& a kiss and a don't know why as
a tear drops from her swollen eye
Apologies until tonight and another
Justified black eye

    General CommentThis song goes out to all the cocksuckers who are so good, beating a poor girl, who's too involved in love to quit these bastards.

    General CommentI dedicate this to my best friend's mother. Her boyfriend is a maniuplative, psychotic asshole with severe rage tendencies, and we know that he WILL begin beating her, and she won't do a damn thing about it.

    It makes me sad, someone whom I always saw as so strong, trapped in this relationship because she can't cope being alone anymore.

    I swear, if we are right, I am going to kill him.

    General Commenti think ahier316 sums it up...
    but um...ok yeah cock suckers. they suck big fat cock.
    no seriously....beating a chick, no matter what (and me being a chick i have all the more reason to say this) is wrong. don't do it. no matter how much they piss you off. just my 2 cents.

    General Commentyea i agree with all of u it is absolutely wrong to beat anyone. i mean yea it mostly happens in a relationship and the girl is usually the one gettin beaten. but it is the womens fault. bcuz she's staying like a dumbass hoping he would change. so i mean yea it's only the man's fault until somethin has happened to the woman. but then its the women's fault for staying with him...im a girl myself. but i think it's the women's fault for staying cuz she got what was coming to her...and yea sure if this happend to anyone i know id beat the shit outta the person that did this to him/her. but yea umm i'll stop rambling.

    General Commentsad song.

    but i don't think the woman that's getting beaten is getting what's coming to her. No one ever deserves that. Yes she should leave him but unless you were ever in that situation I think it's hard to understand their reasoning for staying.

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me because I've had friends get hit by their boyfriends and be too scared to leave them in fear that they'd find them and do something worse.

    I'm not much of a tough guy and I'd probably be easy to beat in a fight but if I came across one of these fucking cowards I'd hurt them so bad.

    General CommentI guess it's not just about beating. It's about a girl who has a relationship with this stupid guy that doesn't care about her. I really do think about what's happening to the girl I like for the moment, she likes one of my friends and he treats her like shit sometimes, even if he does like her. And she's so naive so the guy can do whatever he wants, and then there is just a simple "I'm sorry", and she'll accept it and go on to the next problem. It sucks cuz I really know how I would treat her. Great song!

There were other ppl around at the time (in another room) they came rushing in,and HE fricken said they were "play" fighting..and pretended he was realli sorry..none of the family were suspicious...she got a black eye!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
