Their shrieking laughter scares me to hide
This burning and blazing flame eats my heart away
I cry in the place where I'm cornered in the dark
Just a child, but they don't care... in fact it pleases them
To see my terror and despair throwing me down at their mercies
And my tears streaming down my face, and burning eyes
Encourages more enthusiastic torment at their hands
When blood spills from their efforts they cheer their victory
I cower with arms protecting my head, when they leave
I barely receive time to finish cleaning my wounds
For when I lay down for my time of sweet slumber
They come back then with a renewal of horrific nightmares
That makes me awaken, dreading the day...
When will this battle ever end? When will I be able to recover?
Will I even survive the next wave? Or will I wither before it's my time?
I'm too injured to stand and fight back... I'm too weakened to be strong
I will do anything to rise again, but what if that anything kills me in the end?
Someone please, help knock me back in the fight
Someone please, help me be courageous
Someone please, help before it's too late!
