Dedicated to the victims of abuse.

Crying In The Silence

Loneliness within her heart just seems to get her down
Does not want to live a life ex-pressed with only frown
But that’s how she feels.
Tortured by the past she left behind so long ago
Why she had to go through that she just does not know
Only pain she feels.            So she’s


CHORUS   
    Crying in the silence: a pain within her heart
    Crying in the silence: why did the feelings start.
    Crying in the silence: the pain hurts deep inside
    Crying in the silence: the shame she feels to hide.


No-one would believe her when she tried to tell her tale
They would turn and tell her it was just a fairytale
They just said she lied
Battered, bruised and shattered she just had to go alone
No one wants to hear the sound of pain that makes her groan
She just left and cried.        left her       
CHORUS

Doesn’t want to go on: she just feels that none could care
None to sit and talk about the pain she needs to share
No-one hears her call
Fate has dealt a blow to her she feels none understand
Wasn’t life supposed to be something that was grand
Wants to end it all.            Now she’s

CHORUS   
    Crying in the silence: a pain within her heart
    Crying in the silence: why did the feelings start.
    Crying in the silence: the pain hurts deep inside
    Crying in the silence: the shame she feels to hide.

CHORUS 2   
    Crying in the silence: where no-one feels her pain
    Crying in the silence: her heart is filled with pain
    Crying in the silence: she feels she can’t go on
    Crying in the silence.


TEARS OF A CHILD

Dedicated to abused children

Tears Of A Child

Innocence is gone for good,
Yet she’s only five;
Taken by the one who should
Make her feel alive.
Took advantage of her trust,
Did that with his lies.
Now she suffers with her shame:
All alone she cries.

CHORUS (sung by a child)
Daddy please don’t hurt again
Like you’ve done before
I don’t like the things you do
Behind this tight shut door
Daddy won’t you go away
Please don’t make me wild
All I have when you’ve been here
Are tears of a child.

What he did can’t be undone
She is scarred for life.
Wonder what her future brings
Through the storms of strife.
Shattered by the sickest lust
Forced upon her mind.
By the one she trusted most
That is so unkind

CHORUS

As she grows so does her pain
Deep inside is shame.
Wonders why she has to feel
Guilt from his sick game.
All the things he does to her
Messes up her mind.
When she tries to tell someone
They pretend they're blind.

CHORUS

A SLAVE OF ABUSE

R. J. Burling 21st April, 2009

Dedicated to those women who are slaves of abuse.

A Slave Of Abuse


VERSE 1
The lines upon your face are all etched with fear
Look into your soft eyes and there is seen a tear
And mis'ry is all you feel but you can't get free
He has you within his grip as tight as can be
He has his way with you when he feels he has need
Doesn't care about your life, only just his greed
He has control of you: though you hate the sad life
Could not care what you feel; you are only his wife.

CHORUS
          The sun don't shine from your face any more
          Shadows appear to be all ‘round your door.
          Like one has gone and just turned out your light.
          Once more you feel like you'll give up your fight.


VERSE 2
The child that lies within you should bring you great joy
But to him it is only just a pleasure toy
One he will be hoping to use for his pleasure
That is all he feels about your little treasure
She is destined to cry out all because of pain
Brought about into her life by his own sick gain
All this she cannot fight; her life we may yet mourn
A wasteful sentence laid on one who's not yet born.

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE (CHORUS)


VERSE 3
Just walk away and seek for those you know will care
Those who know just what you feel, ‘cause they have been there
In faith they took a stand and just walked right away
And felt that they no longer wanted there to stay.
There are people who will help and take up your fight
So that you can have life where you can feel just right
And so the child who lies there, deep within your womb
Will not be forced to find her peace down in a tomb

CHORUS 2
          The sun can now shine on your face once more
          The shadows be banished from ‘round your door.
          Someone has come and just turned on your light.
          And now you can stand up and win this fight.


CLAIM BACK
3:24

R. J. Burling 13th June, 2009

Dedicated to those that have had their rights stolen by abuse.

Claim Back


REFRAIN
          Claim back what is yours
          Don't let the devil have his way
          Take it back in God's name
          Have it back today

The devil tries to take it all
Does not want you free
Plunders, robs and tries to steal
Things from you and me
All good things that God gives
He will try and break
Does not want us rich in God
But our spirit take

REFRAIN

And evil comes in  many ways
Disguised as friend not  foe
Hoping that we will not see
And give it a go
Thinking that we do good
Tricked us with his lies
Forces us to go against God
Cares not for our cries

REFRAIN

We must forever be alert
For his evil ways
Does not care just who he hurts
Leaves us in a daze
We must fight: strive to win
Wield a victor's sword
Take all things back from his hands
Only with God's Word

REFRAIN

THE BALLAD OF BOBBIE LEE
2:37
as performed by
Semanon Link
R. J. Burling 16th July, 2009

To those who are weighed down by abuse

*** WARNING *** This song may offend you, as the issues are rather shocking. For victims of abuse, this may bring back horrific memories for you. For those who are not victims, you should be shocked at what victims too often have to go through. ***

The Ballad Of Bobbie Lee

When Bobbie Lee came to this world
She brought so much joy.
But right from that very day
She was Daddy's toy.
Then at just the age of six
Her Dad thought it was time:
Undressed himself and took the girl
And on to her he climbed.

CHORUS
          Bobbie Lee had little chance
          To escape this fate.
          All life ever did for her
          Was just give more hate.

The years went by and she just grew
Prettier each day.
As a teen she'd catch the eye
Of men along her way.
Soon she found herself entwined
Within their putrid lust.
Only wanted her in bed:
Having her: a must.

CHORUS

At twenty one she found herself
Carrying a child.
Had no idea whose it was
And that made her wild
Bitterness inside of her
It filled her mind with strife.
Her little girl she would not share,
So Bobbie took her life.

CHORUS



FOOTSTEPS IN THE NIGHT
3:09
as performed by
White Arrow
R. J. Burling 22nd July, 2009

Dedicated to children who are abused

NOTES: The title suggestion came from Carlynn, US Author and writer of articles for Crying In The Silence. She said that this sound was the greatest fear an abused child could ever hear.


The Ballad Of Bobbie Lee

Once again I hear the sound coming to my room
Only hear it in the night, sounds like thunder boom.
Someone please tell Daddy that this is not right.
I just hate the awful sound of footsteps in the night.


Can't recall when it began, was so long ago
Maybe when I was just five, only God could know.
Live this horror every night: can't tell me it's right
I just hate the awful sound of footsteps in the night.


INSTRUMENTAL VERSE


My Mum says it is not so. All I do is lie.
Does not want to know the truth, how it makes me cry.
Please, God, take this pain away, please just make it right
I just hate the awful sound of footsteps in the night.
PARASITES OF SOCIETY
3:16
as performed by
White Arrow Link
R. J. Burling 30th December, 2009

For those who are victims of abusive parasites

*** WARNING *** This song may offend you, as the issues are rather shocking. For victims of abuse, this may bring back horrific memories for you. For those who are not victims, you should be shocked at what victims too often have to go through. ***

Parasites Of Society

Spreading their evil on innocent souls.
Looking for people whose hearts flow with care.
Searching for souls who share and just help:
To prey on their goodness and then strip them bare.

They haven't a care for how others pay.
Their only intent is to ravish and steal.
They don't really care about what it may cost,
For them, the joy is just making them squeal.

It isn't just money they rob from these ones
But anything else they can take, as they please.
Stealing their pride, their bodies, their soul:
Destroying their victims to satisfy sleaze.

Parasites of society, there's no other name.
We can give to abusers who cause so much pain.
Their only intention is to satisfy self:
And take from the victims all that they can gain.

When they are finished they just move along
Leaving behind them so much despair:
Moving along to the next one they'll take,
Leaving each victim naked and bare.

DRUNKEN ABUSER
3:29
as performed by
White Arrow
R. J. Burling 10th January, 2010

Alcohol is a major cause of abuse.

*** WARNING *** This song may offend you, as the issues are rather shocking. For victims of abuse, this may bring back horrific memories for you. For those who are not victims, you should be shocked at what victims too often have to go through. ***


Wielding words; his fists; his club:
Watch out it's not a knife.
For  in his drunken, angered rage
He'll try and take your life.
He rants; he raves; he screams at you;
He wants to bring you down.
He has no cares for what you feel
And cares not if you drown.

Evening comes: the fights begin;
You no longer have peace.
Because the night puts you at war
With pain that cannot cease.
He's preyed on you for far too long:
And you welcomed him in.
That's when all those around you saw
Your painful life begin.

The bruises on your body grow
You cover them in shame.
He doesn't mind your pain at all,
He treats it like a game.
Your misery grows more each day
As he controls your mind.
But you just cannot see this part
Because your love is blind.

Your children live in fear and pain
Awaiting their next fright.
The  harm is done within their lives:
They fear the coming night.
The  fear they have becomes too much;
It drives them to despair.
What will result if this goes on
Is death, I do declare.


GIVE ME A REASON TO LIVE
3:41
as performed by
White Arrow
R. J. Burling 17th January, 2010

To the victims of abuse, there sometimes appears to be no reason to go on living

*** WARNING *** This song may offend you, as the issues are rather shocking. For victims of abuse, this may bring back horrific memories for you. For those who are not victims, you should be shocked at what victims too often have to go through. ***

Pain in body grows stronger each time
He comes and takes me down.
I never know when the next time will be+
He'll come and take off my gown.
He is too strong to fight.
What he does causes me pain.
Always he comes in the night.
"Oh no! I hear him again."

CHORUS
          Give me a reason to live:
          This pain in my life goes on.
          Give me a reason to live:
          If only I could be strong.
          Give me a reason to live:
          Why am I treated this way.
          Give me a reason to live:
          Can't face another day.

He took me in when I needed a friend
Said that he'd be my mate
But all the things that he uses me for
Just only cause me to hate
What he does is so wrong:
Should not be done to a boy.
Tells me, to him I belong;
Uses me just like a toy.

CHORUS

FINALE (same melody as chorus)
          There is a reason to live:
          Why had I never heard?
          There is a reason to live:
          Found only in God's Word
          There is a reason to live:
          Now I have been set free.
          There is a reason to live:
          Please let all people see.
