"The Cleansing" as written by Steven Edward Robinson, Mark Kenneth Williamson and Colin Jeffrey Robinson....
I can see it clearly now you have the boy
Another one, a different toy
And if i could i'd wear you down, i'd whisper my command
The little one, the beating heart
The one you had right from the start
Another little heartache for you

I won´t let you whisper words of selfish doubt
I´m the the one that let you

So say something the little pill that makes you hold onto
What we have left

I question how you close your eyes and sleep at night
You hold him close, feel warm inside
You make me sick, dont speak to god, no one can help you now
You did endue (?) him didnt you
Imagine what he suffered through
I wish that i could hold my temper

I wont let you whisper words of selfish doubt
I´m the one that let you

So say something
The little pill that makes you hold onto
What we have left
We pray to god
To bring him home
Soft words and hope

    General CommentI can´t help the feeling it might have to do with an abortion as the video actually backs up that idea showing shots of random items linked to children being in use, but the child is always missing from the picture...It could be written from a guy´s point of view on this issue and the whole thing suggests he didn´t approve it to his girlfriend who had it taken resulting in consequent break-up and obviously much ugliness aswell...my five cents...

    General CommentI can´t help the feeling it might have to do with an abortion as both the lyrics and the video actually back up that idea showing shots of random items linked to children being in use, but the child is always missing from the picture...It could be written from a guy´s point of view on this issue and the whole thing suggests he didn´t approve it to his girlfriend who had it taken resulting in consequent break-up and obviously much ugliness aswell...my five cents...
