Nowhere to Stand  - k.d. Lang

    as things start to surface
    tears come on down
    scars of childhood
    in a small town

    hurt she pushed inward
    starting to show
    now she'll do some talking
    but he'll never know

    tables have turned now
    with a child of her own
    but she's blind to the difference
    what's taught is that's known

    numbed by reaction
    stripped of the trust
    a young hheart is broken
    not aware that it's just

    a family tradition
    the strength of this land
    where what's right and wrong
    is the back of a hand
    turns girls into women
    a boy to a man
    but the rights of the children
    have nowhere to stand

    memories of children
    are written in stone
    some they get buried
    not to be shown
    still they do linger
    deep down inside
    like a seed that's been planted
    and won't be denied
