Canyon Country, CA
Once upon a time, in a land so far away
a little girl once lived, but her happiness did not stay.
For only a month after her eigth birthday
she was raped, oh the clouds turned grey.
Not a word about this did this young girl speak
she kept it all inside, but something started to leak.
Like the twinkle in her eyes, that soon became weak.
Some form of happiness, was what she tried to seek.
She turned to the smoking, she turned to the beer
she wanted to scream, but knew no one would hear.
She wanted to cry, but nothing, not one tear...
No one could help her, no one was near.
A few years had past, she was nine months past ten
she went out for a walk and it happened again.
She thought she was over the last time and then
it happene once more, so she vowed to hate men.
She started to cut, she started to burn
her self respect is all she wanted to earn.
She tried to forget, her life she wanted to turn.
Was this the life lesson she was supposed to learn?
She blamed herself for thier actions, she blamed herself for her pain
she blamed herself for the destruction, she says made her insane.
And once again at age fourteen, she was waiting for a train
someone grabbed, raped and stabbed her, no more could she sustain.
She tried to run, she tried to hide, she tried to end her life.
She tried to find and easy way to help her end the strife.
Not caring who could love her, or even ask to be their wife.
She took the cowards way out and hid behind the knife.
Now it's been a year last weekend, nineteen-ninety-eight.
Four times now to evaluate.
She's still alive for that we can jubilate
but now for the rest of her life she'll wait...
'Cause she will always live in fear it will happen once more
and everything she's been through is locked behind her door.
I've given you all a key and you're probably wondering what for
it's to unlock all the secrets to see what she might pour!
