Innocent Surrender

You can peel the skin off my face
And take away all that for which I’ve stood
You can bend and break the heart in my chest
But just please don’t end my childhood

You can sink your nails inside my flesh
And make me scream as loud as you could
You can wipe the joy from my mind
But just please don’t end my childhood

You can sneer at how lonely I’ve become
As you nail my cage with shafts if wood
You can make me scrub my blood from floors
But just please don’t end my childhood

You can shove my face under the running tap
And hold my breath before it stopped for good
You can feed me all the poison you breed
But just please don’t end my childhood

You can perfume my wrists in metal chains
And shatter my skull as slowly as you would
You can make me do things with knives in my hand
But just please don’t end my childhood
