Title: Silent Rage
Post by Matanah on Jul 30th, 2003 at 2:31am
Lonely girl in her shattered dreams
Treading Lightly in a poisoned stream
Tries to speak what she
should not say,
But no one listens anyway.
Screams for help in a silent rage
No escape from a mental cage

Even though she'd rather die
She locks it inside and there it lies.
Sitting on the old man's knees
Daddy wants to be appeased
"You know what I want
So don't be a tease,
Be nice to daddy
Pretty baby please".

Living life in a Silent Rage
No escape from a mental cage.

Running fast
To her mother's side,
Trying desperately to hide.
Telling mommy what she
Locked inside,
But mommy says that these are lies.
"Take your coat
And sit outside,
No one wants to hear your cries!

Living life in a silent rage
No escape from a mental cage.
