Brainwashed


I pledge allegiance to my abuser, with incredible terror he reigns.
Holding me captive by hearts emotions, not responsible for my pain.

Beat me, cheat me, utterly defeat me, I will worship at your feet.
Singing your praises, with utter devotion, with you my life complete.

Battered and Broken, used as a token for your guilty use.
Me the quiet, timid mime, your perect distorted muse.

I pledge allegiance to my abuser, will I forever sing your praise?
Or one day be set completely free, only I can make that change.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
