Dark Zone

Broken and bleeding

Left on the floor

My Daddy doesn't care about me anymore.

He screams and he yells

And he calls me bad names,

The first time it happened

I thought we were just playing a game.

You see,

My Daddy hits me

He doesn't feel bad.

He says Mommy left me

'cause she was always sad.

I cry and I scream

To try to get away.

It just makes him madder,

he gets better aim.

But one day,

You'll see!

I'll get out of this place.

Say goodbye Daddy,

'cause one day

Just wait,

I'll escape this dark zone.
