So, what have they done to you
You were a child
You used to see it through
What have they done to you.

You used to smile
But you couldn't find the crowd
It took a while
But you couldn't see it through
What have they done with you.

So you look at your life
You look at the world
The you look to the oceans
You're looking for that world
A world above the rest
Something to set you free
Then you realize
You need to get out.

So you're swimming around
Well, you're swimming deeper still
They've got you wearing a crown
A crown of steel that's just weighing you down
You need to get away


Well your father was mad
But he still is your dad
Well you know he was wrong
But you can't carry on
You need to break that cycle now
And rise above the rest
The you can be free

    i absolutely LOVE this song. I can totally relate - well not with the abuse part. Well actually, in part. I've been suffering from a lot of UNINTENTIONAL verbal and mental abuse from my parents lately, and this song helps me to realize that I'll eventually "Break that cycle" and "get out" one of these days. I love my parents, but I just feel like they are blatantly wrong in some situations. But anyway - Maren sings with such power and raw emotion. She really is one of the most talented undiscovered artists, and deserves popularity in the United States.

    First of all I love Maren Ord, she has an amazing voice and very talented. This song relates to me in my own way, and songs usually relate to everyone in some way. I can't describle how good this song is along with other songs of hers.
