When every hour is uglier than the one that passed before
A twisted world in a child's mind,
To her it's just the way things are
The horrible sights are lost in her eyes
The pain that was life is over
Nobody knows what Lisa knew, nobody heard her when she cried
Say the wrong word and get punished
Look the wrong way and get slapped
Don't listen at night, just pretend you're asleep
While you're wishing the nightmare would end.
Nobody cares when you're crying, they only tell you to smile
The acting is easy, reality's hard, even for the happiest child
They say you're learning a lesson,
They're teaching you how to be strong
They get older and older and they never learn--
Be happy, you're life's almost gone.
The horrible sights are lost in her eyes
The pain that was life is over
Nobody knows what Lisa knew, nobody heard her when she cried
