Some times, you can only take so much before you rid yourself of what is causing you pain....


She stares at you with burning eyes

you wipe away the tears you cry

she steps a little closer now

your beggin' for mercy as you bow


she see's the frightened look on your face

she smiles, and your heart starts to race

a knife in her hand, hate in her eyes

baby, you better say one sweet goodbye


she shows no love, no kindness at all

your life is over, your hope starts to fall

she gives no way to escape, no way to get out

you glance at the knife, but then have to much doubt


thens its at your throat and you squirm away

a sharp cry rang out, weakly you start to sway

but you straighten back up, stand right up tall

you can fight back, no matter how small


she glares at you, hates that you've got strength

to kill you now, she must go at great length

she's at you again, this time, it's her who screams

she never was a monster, never was this mean


before it can touch you, you grab it out of the air

turn it around, and with a great flair

it sinks into her chest, the blood starts to flow

you sigh, it's over, you can let everyone know.
