Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me there (2x)
I am bare and he is staring, we are trapped and caged like animals
I am small it isn’t fitting. I am screaming but no one’s listening
Don’t touch me, Don’t touch me there

I forgot what it feels like to feel safe, I forgot what it feels like to feel brave
A shattered soul never heals, this heart of flesh has turned to steal
I’ve forgotten how to feel

He liked her, he liked her that way
He broke her she has never been the same
Can you imagine? Can you fathom such a place where evil spreads it’s seed?
It’s upon us, It’s beneath us, It’s up to us to do something
He liked her, he liked her that way…

Listen little children to the story of a girl who found her knight and shining armor
When he saved her from the dragon he was strong and not afraid that there was
Smoke and there was fire and they lived happily ever after in his castle far away
Listen little children to the story of a girl

    General CommentReally? No one has posted on this song yet? Such a moving song and no one has posted?
    Well, I guess it's very self-explanatory as to what it means but still. I was wondering if anyone knew if she wrote this from experience or if she wrote it because of someone else who she knew.

    In regards to a meaning: it's about sexual abuse. This songs is so specific yet so vague that it can be used to relate to anything from incest to child abuse to sex trafficking. It's so blunt and so straightforward that's it's almost offensive but it's honestly one of my favorite songs in the whole world.
