lyrics

FALLING DOWN
The stains are fading from her face
Ashen lines from blank and black eyes tonight
The pain still shows it’s hard to hide
If only there was somewhere to go
Woods so dark road so far
Run so hard follow the stars
Follow the stars

CHORUS:
Falling down face down in a field
Clawing up the steep rocky mountainside
Out of her bondage and into the dark
Out of her prison gotta make a new start
Falling down face down in a field
Clawing up the steep rocky mountainside
Out of her nightmare and into the dark
Out of her prison gotta make a new start

Line was drawn it was crossed
Beaten by a callous man
Crimes were done in plain sight
Ain’t nobody gonna choose that plan
Losers and abusers do what they do only ‘cause they can
Silence equals violence it’s like blood on everybody’s hands

½ CHORUS

Morning light melts away the frost
Curving road leads the stricken and the lost for now
The pain still shows it’s hard to hide
If only there was somewhere to go
Road so long road so far
Follow the signs follow the stars
Follow the stars


SHE'LL PAY
Robin thinks she can get away
But when I find her
She’s gonna pay
She won’t get far she’s got nothing but her feet
No brain in her head no money she’s stupid and weak
She thinks she can get away

CHORUS:
She’s mine for all time
She’ll pay someday
My gun is her fate
My rules my way

She took my key and unlocked the door
She took everything I got nothing more
She’s got my gun and my cash
That bitch has got guts and my only stash
She thinks she can get away

CHORUS


FIST TO THE WALL
My head feels like lead
My hand bloody and broken
My fist to the wall
She’s gonna suffer she’s gonna crawl
My safe violated
She snagged the key while I was blacked out
She’s armed but with my rage
I’m gonna throw her back in her cage

Where’s she’s gone I can’t imagine
She’s got no family nowhere to run to
She’s lost her mind but she will see
She can’t live her life without me
‘Cause I’m the man and she’s the girl
She’ll come back ‘cause I’m her world
By the time I get sober her little vacation will be over


HEADLIGHTS IN THE DISTANCE
I’ll put my thumb out and I will see
If someone can finally help me
See some headlights in the distance
Coming toward me as the day
A car is slowing and I’m growing anxious will I catch a break
Out of state plates and two women driving for two more long days

Oh my god girl get in the car what happened to you
How long you been out here
My name is Rachel this is June
Where do you need to go
Do you need something to eat
We’re going a pretty long way all the way to the California beach


BREATHE AGAIN
Now that I’m away from him
I feel I can breathe again
So long a prisoner of his cruelty
Sisters have taken me where I can break away
Where I’ll sing like a bird at the break of day

Here I’m alone alive
Feeling like a fallen leaf
Out on a windy day
But not a fool of anyone

Not a fool of anyone
