"I Saw It" as written by and Jim/robertson Creeggan....
I saw, I saw it
We all did
It hurt, I heard it
We all hid

You took what we all hide
We all hide from
The hooks went right inside
That's where they hung

In the park by the playground
I won't let you down
In the park by the playground
I won't let you

You weighed and waited
You kept steady
You'd count and recount it
Now you're ready

You took what we all hide
We all hide from
The hooks went right inside
Then the feeling numbs

(I won't let you down
In the park by the playground)
From this point on
I won't let you down
(In the park by the playground)

You think you deserve it
I won't stand and observe it
From this point on
We won't allow
This, brother
If we don't end this now
There'll be others

(I won't let you down
In the park by the playground)
From this point on
(I won't let you down
In the park by the playground)
From this point on
(I won't let you down
In the park by the playground)
From this point on
I won't let you down
(In the park by the playground)
From this point on
I won't let you down
(In the park by the playground)
(I won't let you down
In the park by the playground)
(I won't let you down
In the park by the playground)

    General CommentI read this song in two ways, either:

    -Child-on-child ullying ("I won't let you down" a reference to hanging someone from, eg, a basketball hoop or fence from their underwear)

    -An abuse of a child, by an adult ("I won't let you down" being a quote from that adult, in the sense of "you can trust me - I'll never let you down")

    General CommentI think this is about a child who has experienced the effects of sexual abuse by an authority figure (teacher, parent, clergy, principal, etc).

    The narrator sees another child getting abused, and approaches and tells the kid about the same thing happening to him. They then decide, together, to turn the perpetrator in. Instead they are rebuffed, probably because of the person's power. At that point, they decide to take matters into their own hands, so that no other children are molested.
