memories shattered to the ground
like cheap Christmas ornaments
as she lay there screaming, "What have I done?"
to the one she knew so well

thief of virginity
robber of purity
end of serenity
all for sake of masculinity

a wound so deep no time can reach
or remedy
my Lord, my panacea
set her free

take this anger from my heart
God, forgive me
i know his sins are no greater than mine
but i can’t forget what he did

thief of virginity
robber of purity
end of serenity
all for sake of masculinity

add another heart to your collection
add another scar to her reflection
add another heart to your collection
add another scar to her reflection

her every tear brings judgement down
upon your head to form a crown
you broke much more than human flesh
you pierced the heart of a child of God

...you will repent

    General CommentI looked these guys up and God, this song is great. I figured I'd stop by and see what the lyrics were, and man... this is practically the perfect way to describe the effects of rape. Not that I'd know what it feels like... but it gives you insight on what it must feel like. Great song.

    General Commentit almost hurts to listen to. the imagery he creates when he sings "like cheap christmas ornaments" is well what it is. i duno this song just makes you feel like it's ok to get angry when bad stuff happens and that you shouldn't keep it bottled up inside.

    General CommentThis song is not about rape. the lyrics imply that the girl had an active role in the situation,

    as she lay there screaming, "What have I done?"

    I believe this song is about her sleeping with a previous boyfriend .....

    the one she knew so well....

    And now shes married to this guy who hates the old boyfriend for what he did and he knows the girl is sorry and hates it just as much if not more thatn he does. and hes praying for God to show him how to love this man and to heal the girls wounded heart.

    Just my take on it......
