She was nothing but a cherub
Born into a world of devils
Wings that tore from her form
When fooled into loving one of them
With his two fists she would listen
When fear is his tool for submission
Ge's empowered, he's devoured
And left her another CASUALTY!

Hear the words, feel her shame
It happened on that day....
Hear the words, feel the shame
The bruise that brought the change

Mother, sorry mother
I wish there was more that i could do.
Father, listen father
Did someone way back hurt you too?"
These are the words that bear witness
When young are the eyes that cant distance
The father and the monster
When they both seem to be the same!

Hear the words, feel her shame
It happened on that day....
Hear the words, feel the shame
The bruise that brought the change

His love speaks in tongues of apathy
So hear the words, feel the shame
It happened on that day...

Love, honor, cherish all thrown away
For the age old tradition to make her obey
These are the traditions that men have created
To fill them with power now overinflated
Will his son become a monster the more he watches you?
Will his daughter become dependant on men that beat her too?
This awaits the children!

    General CommentThis song is so AWESOME! i cant belive that barely anyone knows who these guys are.. omg They have so much talent... to me this song is about the beating of wives. It is so deftly written.. great lyrics strike a chord in my brain. Get these guys some exposure that they deserve so much!
