Stop domestic violence!
As I close and lock the door
The tears of temper blind me
Deep in the red mist, bind me
Inside these four confining walls
Where there’s only ever you and me
Barely do all those bruises show
We both know you can never leave
Too caught up in the undertow
And when dawn breaks, another day
You know precisely what I’ll say
“So sorry, but you make me mad!”
“You’re the best thing that I ever had!”
Again, a sweet good girl you’ll be
Exactly like you know you should
But my broken, empty promises
Are always paid for in fresh blood
