She once felt so alive and so free
Then one turbulent night at the age of thirteen
Her innocence was taken, along with her soul
That night a strange man consumed her whole
It didn't matter how hard she cried or what she said
Almost as if he was pleasured by watching her beg
Not once, not twice but three times he broke her
Now to survive she must make life a blur
She's sips on lean to try to prevent the dreams
Night after night her parents wake to her screams
Trying to tell her everything’s going to be alright
But how would they know, they weren't there that night
The night all was lost and broken
And so now these words must be spoken
It's up to us to stop monsters and pedophiles
How long will it take before he hurts another child
