If they lived in our four walls

Some take it just through envy
As green is all they see
Without a thought of fear and pain
They'll cause for you and me

She must be right
She's a woman
Is the method how they think
Despite the fact she wakes

Each morning just to drink

What could have been their reasons
To change your life this way
When they knew all of her problems
And watched her every day

Did they do it for their ego's
To say they have big hearts
Not thinking bout your future
As they tore your life apart

If they lived in our four walls
Witnessed all that we did see
Or see you reaching out your arms
Screaming loud for your Daddy

Then they could never raise their heads
Not for one single day
As they've destroyed a child's life
With games they shouldn't play
