There is a story that I want to tell,
A little story from the inside of hell.
There wasn't anything that she could do.
She was trapped to the shit like glue.
Infuriated by the problems at his work.
That jerk went berserk
And let his anger run the way up her back,
A disgusting attack and then everything went black.

Shut your mouth and feel the pain.
You're a prisoner at your domain.
Where no one can hear you complain
You're locked away in chains and emotions doesn't help you (now).

When he promise it won't be the same.
It takes a couple of days then you feel ashamed again,
But the worst part of the game is to be afraid all the time, in good or bad.
And I feel so sad when he treats you like a punching bag
And your so called friends pretends like they can't see it,
They defend the bastard until the end and when it hurts me
I can only imagine how it hurts you.


And you can't feel free, like me, and you can't run.
And people act like they don't see this
And then they run away from what they can't handle,
But no one thinks about how you handle this.

    General CommentWell, on the obvious note, it's about physical abuse in intimate relationships and how the victim usually blames themselves. And even the part "and your so called friends pretends like they can't see it,
    they defend the bastard until the end and when it hurts me " is true, alot of people will defend an abuser if they think it's not possible for them to be abusive, usually saying "oh they'd never do that."

    It could be metaphorical as well, I've noticed that most of Raised Fist's songs are politically/socially motivated...not to be captain obvious of course.

    General CommentNice 1 with the interpretations, i agree. I work for the police and they have a lil saying about domestics - "He's changed, he love's me, he only kicks me in the ribs now". Kinda a half hearted joke at the amount of women who return to men who control and beat them and we are effortless to stop it! Pisses me off. Bunch of bully, controlling arseholes who are so cowardly they have to hit women.
    Fav song off the album
