"Silent Rain" as written by Sascha Gerstner and Andreas Deris....
He is God and he is light
He means everything in life
To her awaking mind
He's the one of two she loves
He's the one of two she snogs and hugs
In blind faith

But in the recent dead of nights
There was wonder, there was fright
Daddy's coming for a secret playing
Secret playing

Silent giants
Silent rain
Silence covers shame
Lying colours
Lurking bane
Under the silent rain

Daddy told her not to speak
Not to wail and not to weep
A promise she won't keep
Saw her mother at the door
Staring craven to the core
She won't care no more

So in the endless coming years
There was sorrow, there was fears
Daddy's coming for a secret playing
Secret playing

Silent giants
Silent pain
Silence covers shame
Lying colours
Lurking Bane
Under the silent rain

    General CommentA young girl looks up to her father more than anyone else.
    One day, however, the father molests the daughter, he tells her not to wail, weep, etc. but the girl does anyway because she's terrified. Her mother sees this, and is jealous of the attention, but does nothing to help the daughter.
    The father used to mean everything to the daughter and was her hero, so she never tells anyone, despite the fact that she doesn't like it, but also because she feels ashamed of herself and confused. Eventually she stops crying and simply takes it "Silence covers shame". This goes on for some time (years).

    At least, I'm pretty sure that's what it's about.
