Bended knees result
In something strong and breaking through
The pieces fall, the something snaps
That was the will to leave the wall.
Your little arms can't hold him off forever.
Solace only comes for you
When you are crying, rocking, sleeping,
In your corner of the wall.
And hands clasped in prayer
Overhead shield the blows
Of a madness too blind to see pain in her head.
You haven't got strength, child, you haven't got strength.
Your heart will not save her and fortune not favor
The efforts of angel to fend off the beast.
But when the room is silent,
And the darkness swallows all again,
You'll crawl into her lifeless arms and think of school;
It starts today.
And like first goodbyes hurt mommy,
Last goodbyes hurt you.
