Song for the Destroyed

Song for the Destroyed

Chorus
This is for the girls who hang on
The girls that dare to brave on
The girls who offer a silent plea
By destroying themselves slowly
You're more courageous than you think
But you don't need to put on a show
You don't have to be strong anymore
Despite the pain, there is relief

Verse 1
This is for the girls who starve themselves
As a way to attain perfection
This is the girls who hide behind makeup
So they can accept the mirror's reflection
This is for the girls whose scars
Release the pain inside
This is for the girls who use any means
So perhaps they can survive

Chorus
This is for the girls who hang on
The girls that dare to brave on
The girls who offer a silent plea
By destroying themselves slowly
You're more courageous than you think
But you don't need to put on a show
You don't have to be strong anymore
Despite the pain, there is relief

Verse 2
This is for the girls who think
That boy or girl will be enough
This is for the girls who escape the pain
And find themselves using drugs
This is for the girls who drown the hurt
In bouts of tearful drinking
This is for the girls who use any means
To keep themselves from sinking

Chorus
This is for the girls who hang on
The girls that dare to brave on
The girls who offer a silent plea
By destroying themselves slowly
You're more courageous than you think
But you don't need to put on a show
You don't have to be strong anymore
Despite the pain, there is relief 
There is a God through all your grief
Despite the pain, there is relief
He'll be all that you can't be
Despite the pain, there is relief
This is for the girls who hang on...
This is for the girls who brave on... 

The End
