Previous Song - Tracks Across the Snow Rocking Horse Next Song - Safety


Johnny rocks on his rocking horse
Dreaming of the day of the big divorce
Hoping somehow that everything will get better
Johnny turns up the music loud
Sings himself hoarse just to drown them out
She wants to leave, but they both know he won't let her

She's not gonna be brave
She's not gonna be to slow
To make her attack
when he starts showing his back like a fool Yeah

Been made to take all that she could
Mother and child, oh make their escape
Yeah, they left him lying there in a dark pool of his own hate
There was no time to contemplate

In a house by the door, there's a rifle with a rusted sight
Taking aim, making sure, going to end it all tonight
He's the lamb with a loaded gun
Quietly beggin' her to get it done
She looks like a ghost but at least she's not weeping

She's not gonna be brave
But she's not gonna be to slow
To make her attack
when he starts showing his back like a fool

Been made to take all that she could
Mother and child oh make their escape

They left him lying there in a dark pool of his own hate
There was no time to contemplate

Red
Black
Faces that come undone
Beg
Plead
And then drop like setting suns

Compassion please

Not until she's
Been broken
Been broken

Oh now day after day learn to swallow down
Bite after bite of all the pride you can
She said, keep your head when he comes
Bleed and suffering
Find freedom

Compassion please not until she's been broken

It's ok
It's ok
It's ok
Everything is okay
Everything is okay
