"Unspoken Request" as written by and D. Hyde N. Gray....
Failed coercion
Leads to intrusion
And the blood forever runs
In her head
Into her hands
Between her legs
Where his mind lies

Power drives him in
To murder innocence
On the rack of his devices
Vices and designs
She will never scrub the stains
From her arms
From her neck
From her legs
Dirt will remain
As a reminder
Of his hateful face
Reach in
Rip apart the inner fibers
Of her soul
Boy you'll never know how it feels
To fear the shame
Feel free to walk down
Any dark street without fear
Without shame no one is
Going to touch you
And you don't need protection
She shouldn't need protection!

And you can sit there
With that stupid smile on your face
And try to convince me that you care
Defined by your power
Defined by her body
The innocence she feels
Everybody else contains
It's lost it's gone
But I guess it doesn't matter anyway
Reach in
Rip apart the inner fibers
Of her soul
And you can sit there
With that stupid smile on your face
And try to convince me that you care
Defined by your power

Defined redefined fucked tortured and discarded

And if he ever cares
Maybe he will feel ashamed
For everything he's stolen
For all the trust she gave
Possessed and broken
She cries but it's not our problem
Pull down your goddamn blinds

He will never think he's wrong
She will never feel quite right

You will never think he's wrong
You will never think you're wrong
She will never feel quite right

    General Commenti don't get the end "you will never think he's wrong"... the overall opinion here is that "rape is wrong" so why wouldn't we think he was wrong... :\!

    General Commentit's good that there are men who actually care enough to write about such a sensitive subject as rape. especially since i know personally that you really never do "feel quite right" again.

    General Commenti think what he means by "you will never thinks he's wrong" is that the victim will never think it is his fault because she blames herself for what happened

    General Commentthis is obviously about rape. its such a cowardly act that a guy who cant get laid carries out. stories like this sicken me especially since a friend of mine was raped and is now taking care of a baby.

    General CommentAgreed. One of the most moving songs on the CD. Sickens me as well since a close friend is a rape survivor, and she "will never feel quite right" again.

    General Commentthis song is really sad, its about rape. it makes u think of all the innocent people that are raped. in the one part when he says " pull down ur goddamn blinds" as if hes the rapist really makes you think and feel like a victim. great song tho BSF ARE AWSOME!!
