One wrong word

Don’t be afraid

You’re not in trouble

But one wrong word

And your father's lost forever

 

Not that we’ll tell you

It’s all behind your back

You’re too young to understand all the facts

 

Your words ring true

Though I’m sure they’re false

We’ll use you

Treat you like an animal in the slaughterhouse

 

Tie you up

Drain you of blood

Before cutting you open and watching you die

 

While the outside is lost

The inside will rot

Leaving your mind lost on the chopping block

 

Not that we care

But this is for you

You’ll be safer this way

Away from the world

 

Leave your mind

Let us take you to the Lord

This life is dangerous for people like you

 

Safer to end it then to let you continue

You will leave this place

Forever to solitude.
