Every day she fears her life will end
Every time the call rings they are late
They never come quite in time to see his fist
Leave its mark on the side of her disgrace
They'll never charge him anyway and you know it
Say we can't get involved today
So where's the choice and who protects her now
Bruised and battered the blood has stained her gown
Useless screams for help can't save her now
Choices rendered the house is burning down
No one will ever understand cause they don't have to feel his crushing hands
And the ears that ignored her screams before are now wondering what she did it for
But with a bottle of kerosene she found her freedom
And then burned the bastard to the ground and ran
The fire will now wash away the blood on her white wedding dress

    General Commentthis song is pretty much straight forward. its about how a woman is getting beaten and no one will get involved.and then one day in an act of desperation she either hospitilizes the guy or kills him and now society has turned their backs on her again calling her this evil person for killing him. when the fact of the matter is if she didnt kill him he was going to kill her.

    General Commenthas anyone heard Funeral for a Friends song "Rookie of the Year"?
    its the bastardized title of two othe BSF songs and a lyrical continuation of this song. Good stuff.
