She pretends she never heard the screaming
Son and daughter hope they're just dreaming
A sickening crash fills the midnight air
She's on the floor as he just doesn't care

Off to work, she knows not of what's transpiring
Darkness grows at home, sanity retiring
The kids never dare to say a word
If they ever want their voices to be heard

Once again.

She comes home, eight hours of pain gone
Daughter does the dishes, son mowing the lawn
As daddy sits drunk in his reclining chair
Hoping not to be noticed, she climbs the stairs

Sitting in recluse in her own placidity
Praying for her life to return to lucidity
The prayer is answered with a slamming door
He has his way and leaves her on the floor

Once again.

Report is here, son is failing classes
Knowing nothing happens if he passes
In drunken stupor, he's sent on his way
And all of the new scars are there to stay

Daughter watches in horror, picks up a phone
Beep is heard, into a wall she's thrown
As mother listens, cries in pillow deep
The sound of agony lulls her to sleep

Once again.

Wake up, husband demands sustinence
Late for work, hugs her kids in recompense
The scars upon their backs sets her in fear
Again she wonders what they're doing here

She finally feels a rage building deep inside
Leaves her work, sits in car and starts to cry
She knows she'd fail if she left her kids with this
And knows prolonging will be met with remiss

Once again.

She puts away her ID, has background checked
Wipes away the tears as they inspect
She buys the cure to all of her misery
With this, her pain and agony will free

She sets him up with an amorous encounter
Keeping close in reach, her tranquiliser
He crawls on top and starts to fornicate
As she reaches for the gun he reciproicates

Once again, he has total control
She feels the end is near, she's pale and cold
Son charges in with daddy's .45
And seemingly ends the suffering in their lives

She sits with his lifeless body in her hands
Daughter crawls in, too young to understand
Mother shakes and trembles for the dead
She grabs the gun and puts it to her young's head

With heart heavy, she says a final goodbye
Shaking hand as her daughter begins to cry
The whimpers sileced with quick sound of pain
Son suffers the same fate, tears fall like rain

She stares at the destruction left in her wake
The police pound the door with the force of an earthquake
She sighs as the last round rests inside her brain
No more will they ever feel the pain

Ever again.
