The album "The Day The Sun Went Out" by Boy Sets Fire seems to have a lot of abuse-related lyrics. "Swingset" is clearly about abuse, "In Hope" is probably about trying to break the cycle of abuse, and a few others may or may not be about the same thing. It's a very good band if you like that sort of music. Here's a link to the lyrics:

The album is the first one listed. You may get a pop-up or two; sorry.

BOY SETS FIRE LYRICS

"Swingset"

I am here, take this I can't feel anyway I can't hurt I can't bleed But I can kneel as well as you once did Deep inside I can feel the screams Growing louder every day Crying out for a new rain Manipulate my submission To push this pain onto myself Mama said that she would save me The angels said that they would save me I can fly I can away So why does the pavement Look so damn close.

BOY SETS FIRE LYRICS

"Pure"

My mouth is full of your inspiration Cut me, size me down for your regulation Nothing stands so close to driving Nothing gets tense or biting Nothing stands in the way It's all right Your walls are still white Location is everything, or so it seems Writing down all your "wrongs" or "rights" In a book you call your own Stand down Silence kills the revolution All that remains stagnant Dies submission is your resolve They've given you all the calls Sucker punched again Blind... blind... blind.

I PARTICULARLY LIKE THIS ONE.....(chek my signature?)

BOY SETS FIRE LYRICS

"Another Badge Of Courage"

They say that what does not kill you Only makes you stronger Well maybe some of us are just too sick And tired of being so damn strong And I can't reach for a reason to look in your eyes Like it doesn't matter at all. Falling down, crying out And I'll remember spinning around in circles Just anticipating what the next stranger is going to do to me And I'll remember what you did to me Lying on your kitchen floor Burning with hate I want to rip your hands off I want to rip your tongue out For every time I have cried Every time you have lied Pushed down Laughing in my face Pain I've never felt Hate I've never screamed And I can't still remember that fucking look in your eyes Screaming at me like it doesn't matter at all And now eyes will always lie.

BOY SETS FIRE LYRICS

"In Hope"

In hope this little angel will be free from all of their poisons And in hope I grind my knees into the floor Praying that he'll never have to feel the pain I have felt Walking through glass ignorant pain in my feet His little sweet hands, innocent face so unaware of what lies in waiting In hope, there will be forever waiting for you In hope you'll never look back and hate these days I've held your hands Falling away Changing each day to his own fate until I am needed no more for his comfort or his joy In hope there's an answer And in hope I cry But I am beaten still the same by this subtle game As he breaks away I turn my face to the sky for a way to decline These fairy tales that will mold into nightmares This fate laid out in my hands unatoned I descend into my Own decision In hope I can turn this page Falling away Changing each day to this own fate When I feel him I go running on his own Wait for something that more there is not.

BOY SETS FIRE LYRICS

"65 Factory Outlets"

I wont lay my dreams on your alter of sacrifice Take it The lies that you hold dear No longer affect me As your life is bought and sold I'll sit back and laugh at your... Burning... Draining... Dying... world. Dried out killed overused Drained of all that you give Don't expect another contender to be the object of this abuse I've given up on the dying It never gave me your peace Smile big sit straight now Let go of all your dreams (bleed yourself dry boy) You've made your decision, I've made mine So you can save your breath Selling me on your death Choose your own death You're already dead.

BOY SETS FIRE LYRICS

"Hometown Report Card"

I used to love you I can't stand the sight of your fucking face You have helped to build The walls that keep me in my place The trust I gave no longer comforts The trust I gave in you've broken under And all that lies you've etched in your stone Will not affect me on my attention You hands nailed bleeding in true martyr form Your neutral standpoint has left me standing alone I'm sick of excuses; I'm tired of lies I'm tired of fools like you wasting my time Hands of my soul, you can't control (hands off my fucking soul) And I hope your new friends will treat you just as well For all the hard work you've done to gain their acceptance Fuck you.


These are incredible lyrics. I am gonna get me some of this tunage. Thanks.

Peace

Orodo
