Description
This is a song about child abuse.
This is a song about the emotional aftermath of a child after being abused (for years to come).
Learn more about Blue Ribbon for children!

I originally wrote these lyrics after I got invited to a collab.
The requestor of the collab back then said to me "Great lyrics".
We did a great job with this song.

The requestor confessed the crime of molesting children at a shelter for AIDS orphans in Africa just two months ago.

I am in shock.
This song is for you.

Lyrics
Her movie stopped long time ago
Her frame was cropped from her childhood's glow
All the things you do every step you take
You are the bomber crew that leads her astray

And she's running away from home
And she's running away from home

I need you now (you say)
I want you now (you say)
I will kiss you (her own betrayal)
I will touch you now (she can't turn away)
This giant leaves her powerless
The dream she still and always has
Wrong kind of careess

And she's running away from home
And she's running away from home

The night is too quiet
The soul is too loud
The night is so quiet
Don't let this b.astard hunt you down

And she's running away from home
And she's running away from home

Away!
The person who committed this crime, will most likely never hear this as he will be serving a maximum 30 years in jail for his atrocities!

I used to work with that person too and it has hit me just as hard as you. I too am dumbfounded and how on earth it ended up like that?

Asides from the issues at hand. Chris this is brilliant work mate

I had not been active here for about a year. I saw that you had commented on my rendition of "E Lucevan Le Stelle". This is a powerful song that conveys so much emotion and puts a perspective on the victims suffering. I found out also that someone I worked with in South Africa, who was running a home for AIDS orphans, let her adult son live there and he abused the girls. At least the abuse was found out and corrected. I have kids I went to school with where they held it in till they were adults and then tried to deal. See my rendition of the song "Jerusalema" for the story on these amazing girls in RSA. Great work here man.

Power ballad
This is a true power ballad. You convey angst in your vocal and the harshness of the situation through the guitar wall of sound. Excellent and sensitive lyric on a horrible topic.

I didn't do any music for the past 15 years before but switching to Mac changed my life as I get back into creativity. I met some wonderful talent here and the feedback I received here really helped me to improve my songwriting and also my production... [see more]
