Motivate to forget so I can endure your words
Tell myself it's ok cos you say you're finding me pretty enough

Stripped away
Something I'll never get back someday
I'm stuck in doubt, looking for the door that leads me out

I'm just a little child, stripped away
I'm just a little child, you stripped away.
Something I'll never get back someday.

Who're you, enrage, as I bleed and still you know I'm late
To feel obscene,
Love to find but from a past,
You've heard but never seen,
You're so scared that I...

Refuse to lay down tonight,
And tolerate your words...

Stand up for myself if I'm on your knees
You're finding me pretty enough..
I finally see the light tonight
Have I been pathetic enough?

You will feel its hurting tight tonight
And all from this little child

All from a little child, who's finally turned away
All from a little child, who's finally turned away

Drift away..
Come back some day...

    General Commentok, at first i thought this song is about a girl losing her virginity because she was seduced by a older guy and then the guy fades out of her life like nothing happened but the second part of the song confused me, any opinions guys ?

    Song MeaningTo me it seems to be about turning away from abuse (though not necessarily physical or sexual, as the lyrics may be used symbolically here). He tolerates the abuse because the abuser appears to show some sort of favor ("find me pretty enough") towards him, but at some point, he has to start pushing back ("refuse to lay down tonight and tolerate your words"), and finally walks away.

    General CommentThis song has weaker lyrics than others on the album, but I still like it a lot. Billy's vocals are powerful. I think it's fairly straightforward, in that it's about being used by someone else and then refusing to be a victim any longer.
