She's always in black
Covered from head to toe
It hurts her to walk
While her new bruises sting
The old ones are still sore

Every night
She drinks her own blood
Her skin, once beautifully pale
Is now black and blue
Another night of torture
Another swollen eye

She puts a knife through her heart
Whenever she goes home
He shoots a bullet through her head
Whenever he sees her
Two blinds don't make a right

See the marks
Where the fists came crashing down
Hear the silence of her breathing
Her bruises no longer sting
Never again will she swallow her blood
