The Brackens

Do you remember the Brackens We went there when we were young That was our secret place Me and you had so much fun That's where the woods are winding Tall tall trees The earth went on forever At least that's how it seemed I could smell the earth around me Hear the owls within the trees Tiny animals scurrying around beneath the fallen leaves Do you remember the Brackens Sky so clear it gleamed Running together through the woods You used to make me scream On our backs counting stars I was so full of hope Playing beneath the moonlit sky The moonbeams did elope Do you remember the Brackens I do every day My face pushed down into the mud The mice and deer decay The thorns that cut into my back My sore and bloodied knees The rotting leaves within my mouth Under the dying tree The horrible way you took The way you made it hurt Ripping through my insides Cutting through my thoughts I remember the Brackens I think of those woods each day I'm still trying to build a life To keep the mind at bay I remember that you loved me once There on top the hill I remember that you raped me once And your friends did too Do you remember the Brackens I really hope you do The way you gave me to your friends To do with me their will Them shouting and cheering in my face Pouring vodka down my throat Pulling at my underwear After ripping off my clothes I felt their hands all over me Shoving in my hair As they pulled my head back And had their way right there The insides of me did curl up I closed my eyes real tight As they entered my inner parts And bashed away all night Now I have your attention Your eyes are right on me I'm going to make you see You didn't completely shatter me Just winded me a while As you can see I got back up Hunted you down have I Although it haunts me everyday I'm better than I was I got up out of bed To kill all of you off I was not your puppet Never yours alone What you did to me was evil So your never make it home Please don't look at me like that I'm not the first to lie I can see your doing what your friends did I see your gonna cry Now be a good boy Open up your mouth This is how dead leaves taste As I blow you through the mouth
