NO WHERE TO TURN

NOW, THIS PLACE YOU ARE,
IS ON YOU: SO HARD.
WORDS THAT YOU SPEAK SOFT,
HE STILL IS GOING TO BE SET OFF.
HE TELLS PEOPLE WHERE YOU BOTH LIVE,
THEN AFTER THEY GO, TO YOU HELL HE WILL GIVE.
NO MATTER, WHAT HE DECIDES TO USE,
YOU KNOW, YOU WILL END UP BLACK AND BLUE.

WHEN WILL OTHER PEOPLE LEARN,
YOU HAVE NOWHERE TO TURN.
THE THINGS TO THEM YOU TELL,
WITH THEM YOU KNOW, SHOULDN'T SET WELL.
BUT AS YOU SAID THE WORDS,
IT IS LIKE THEY ARE NEVER HEARD.
PEOPLE TELL YOU NOT TO BE THE FOOL,
NO, THERE IS, NO ONE THAT CRUEL.

IT SEEMS HARD FOR THEM TO BELIEVE,
THAT IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT, YOU DON'T LEAVE,
THEY DON'T THINK HE CAN CONTROL YOUR EVERY BREATH,
OR KNOW WITHOUT KILLING YOU, HOW TO TAKE YOU TO THE BRINK OF DEATH.
PEOPLE WILL LISTEN AND NOT WORRY,
AS EACH WORD, EACH THING SAYS HE IS SORRY.
THEY SEE OF HIM HIS GOOD SIDE,
THE EVIL SIDE FROM THEM HE DOES HIDE.

NOW, THEY SAY WHEN YOU GET FED UP,
AND FOR YOU ENOUGH SHOULD BE ENOUGH.
THAT THEY REALLY KNOW,
FOR YOU THERE IS A WAY TO GO.
BUT IT IS NOT THEM WHO CRY,
OR WITH THINGS HAVE THEIR HANDS TIED.
OR BE DRUGGED ACROSS THE FLOOR,
KNOWING THERE WILL ALWAYS BE MORE.

NOW, BECAUSE HIM YOU WANTED TO BE HAPPY,
YOU STAY AS HE GOT MORE SNAPPER.
YOU THOUGHT IN A WHILE,
YOU BOTH WOULD WEAR A SMILE.
LITTLE DID YOU KNOW,
WHAT TO YOU, HE WOULD SHOW.
NOW, YOU KNOW, HE IS NOT THAT GREAT,
BUT NOW YOU FIND, TO LEAVE IT IS TO LATE.
