This is about a person who lives in a hell where they are unable to speak up about how they feel inside about the clearly messed up situations goin on around them. It's about how it affects that person to have to sit back and watch all this happen.

Sitting alone on a bench in the park

Cigarette burning in the dark

Sounds and whispers all around

Shadows moving on the ground


My heart beats but doesn't speak

Even if it did it's voice is too weak

People always talk but never listen 

At least until my eyes begin to glisten 


This empty park echos my pain

The silent intensity driving me insane 

My emotions burning like this cigarette 

Building up smoke of regret


My head has been over run 

By the organ holding its tongue

Leaving me filled with pain unspoken...

And a rage slowly being awoken


How can I smile when I only hate?

I wonder if pain is simply my fate 

I feel the need to scream and fight

Now I've lost my sight


All I see is red

The daughter in me is dead

My family is too far gone

And my pain has lasted too long
