Album
Name of Song: If someone just cared

If someone just cared,
It would’ve been nice,
The violence from teachers
was worse than a fight.

They were in charge,
Were supposed to respect,
But their violent betrayal
left such lasting effects.

How do you justify
caning a child,
Too young to fathom
betrayal in the mind.

Still to this day,
I can’t lose the hate,
Was easily infused
by their psychotic state.

But we were small
and just trying to know,
Not worrying about pain
from some psychotic’s show.

Psychotics love power,
Sadists love pain,
But now I have looked
and they’re both just the same.

Allowed to harm children,
Using violence and sex,
They bring about scars
that direct what comes next.

I was a child
when violence was king,
What’s there to learn
when it’s in everything.

Make it all vanish,
My hope for a child,
Who felt all that pain
but can still turn a smile.

Sexual abuse
and violent betray,
Talk to a friend
even though hard to say.

Where children have rights,
And abusing a crime,
Such teachers are jailed
for quite a long time.

Where children have rights,
And abusing a crime,
Such teachers are jailed
for quite a long time.
