"The Vendetta (Still Helpless)" as written by Ian Stevenson Crichton, James Dickson Crichton, James Gilmour and Michael Anthony Sadler....
I'm up each day
At the crack of dawn
Primed for the first inspection
He's runnin' the home and the family
Like a military installation
This can't be right
I feel so helpless
I can't do this and I can't do that
I dare not make a move
Without his orders
No matter how well I do what I do
It's never good enough, (not for him)

Helpless,
I feel so helpless
Helpless,
(I) don't like to be so helpless

I don't wish to feel in my own home
Some kind of prisoner
There must be a way to put a stop
To his violent behavior

Helpless,
I feel so helpless
Helpless,
(I) don't like to be so helpless

Somehow somethings' changed around the house
It suddenly seems so calm
Now what are we supposed to do
With all of this new found freedom

Helpless,
I feel so helpless
Helpless,
(I) don't like to be so helpless

    My InterpretationThe lyrics in this song convey a message from the point of view of a repressed/abused woman. She lives with a husband or partner who is controlling and expects perfection from her and the kids. "Primed for the first inspection" is a reference to the fact that her husband looks her over to make sure she is presentable before she leaves the house. "I dare not make a move without his orders" again goes back to the theme of the girl not doing anything unless her partner gives her permission. The message of control and emotional abuse is very clear. At the end of the song, the lady has the courage to leave her tormentor and "Somehow something has changed around the house, It suddenly seems so calm".
