A Nightmare Revealed

Innocence, innocence
Destruction, destruction
Betrayal, betrayal
Love, unloved
Confusion, confusion
To trust people, to love someone
To be harmed, black, feathers,
Little child, torture, pain
Outside humiliation, inside destruction
One become two, two become three
Survival-oh the pain
Must I do this, yes I must, there's no choice
Three, four, push it back, push it back.
Mother, father, trust, no trust,
Oh those visits, family tradition,
What is truth? What is truth?
Many, many, more and more -questions.
Future question, future trials,
Help me, help me,
What is love, where is love,
Help my confusion, earn my respect, help me love,
Tell it, tell it, oh for you, oh for you.

It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;

Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
