She wakes the holes in her soul gaping

She can’t take this waking

Driven mad by what he’s done

But by day’s end he won’t do it anymore

She wakes the holes in her soul are gaping

She couldn’t do it yesterday

She couldn’t leave

Couldn’t even put an end to it all

She wakes and it’s every inch of her that he’s taking

No remorse

No pity

He just takes

And those holes in her soul

Their gaping

Wider and wider

There’s one thing left

But she can’t bring herself to do it

She can’t take the shot

Years go by

And those holes in her soul

Are filled with a little boy

A beautiful baby

But that man he comes

And takes her

She wakes the holes in her soul are gaping

It’s her that lies there at night

Ever waking

She can’t take the shot

Till the day he does

That little boy he’s 3 now

And that man he beats him

She wakes

Those holes in her soul

Have sealed

She lies covered in blood

Gun in hand

That man beside her

A bullet in his head

And her boy sleeping soundly in the next room
