this is a little dark to invest in, still it is powerful

Safer in a hospital bed than she ever was at home, We can never know the fear she felt every night
Every squeaky hinge every creak in the floor reminded her again once more of shattered trust
Coming from someone she’s supposed to love, supposed to love
Love and fear and shame a dark angel at the foot of her bed,
They always came entwined like the serpent on the cross.
Doctor Jeckl or Mr. Hyde who was going to kiss her good night tonight
It was shattered trust, coming from someone she’s supposed to love, supposed to love
She turns 13 she begins to understand, no one was going to rescue her from this man.
Town doctor treated with respect, the only thing she can ever expect is shattered trust
Coming from friends she’s supposed to love, supposed to love
Nothing about living was ever chiseled in stone, she read somewhere you got to make you gotta life your own
So she took matters in to her own hands when she found that gun in her daddies night stand
TV news was at her house by half past ten
We all wanted to see it again and again.
Swaying on the front porch with that gun, quietly singing, we shall ever come
It was shattered trust coming from friends she’s supposed to love supposed to love
So she’s safer in a hospital bed than she ever was at home.
