Rape Thy Child
Written by Brian Roberts

On the wings of a child
I lost my soul to the devil
The devil in you
Raped me of the child inside
Why I have to ask you
After all these years do you
Still hide behind your shame
Yes I blame you and you alone
You see I was a child
Born of innocence into this world
Your world of shame
Courage from a bottle is your sin
So brave is the one
Who robs a child of his soul
You don't understand do you ?
The fear,Anger,Sadness
I feel inside of this child
That hate you for the coward
you were then and still are today
Yes father of mine
The burden of truth finally
has come crashing down
I thought I could forgive you
But you took something from me
I can never get back
The child in me,leaving me empty inside
Except for the hate I can't hide
On the wings of this child
Soaring to new heights
I refuse to hide in your shame
