I'm scrubbing and scrubbing
My fingers away
I'm scrubbing and scrubbing
All night and and all
No matter how hard I scrub
These stains will not dim
They seem to get louder
So I try again
I'm screaming and crying
For these stains to leave
Stains from my blood
From scars I achieved
I close my eyes
And with a sob I pray
"Please, dear Lord
Make these stains go away!"
Unanswered, still tainted
I open my eyes
The stains stare back at me
So to cover them, I lie
So no one else finds
These stains that I see
Though I'd rather you saw
And somehow help me.
