Name of Song: Giving in to the pressures of others’ cruel sin

I’m at the beginning
of where I begin,
Giving in to the pressures
of others’ cruel sin,

I wasn’t prepared
for seeing my friends cower,
The evil had already
taken jobs with too much power.

I’m talking about the adults
who abused our very own young,
Who used the job protections
to simply have some fun.

Chorus
Innocent children,
Being told what to do,
Negating their rights,
All those sadists, they knew.
Caught in a system
for those who use pain,
Strange way to teach
and never be blamed.

The scarring from violence
goes deep into cells,
Those cells have a mind
that’s just itching to tell.

Your body is yours,
Until death do you part,
Make it your own,
It’s too soon to depart.

You have to start somewhere,
Help your body feel good,
Make it more healthy,
These are things that you should.

Then there’s your mind,
It’s always been there,
You are in charge,
Embrace what it dares.
