Promise Land – Her Name lyrics

[Verse 1]
There, the children playing in the rain.
The predators gaze as they stake their claim.
Like a sheep she was led to the slaughter house.
She had no choice but to follow them or else.

Secret lust – Shaken trust – Destroys a soul.
When this child of 12 was forced from her home.
For their greed, they will kill. they will cause her pain.
The truth is no one even knows her name.
Oh God Please!

Do we see her? Do we hear her or do we close our eyes?
Oh God do we care to know her name?
Will we listen? Will we help her or will we all deny?
Guide us to this child!

[Verse 2]
To the cities of profusion they lie.
Now employed and her soul begins to die.
On the streets she performs putting on her show.
If she does well, promises of returning home

Get in line! They take a ticket; the sick run high.
Anticipation in the clients as they stand by.
Times Up! Close the door to hide her shame.
The truth is no one even knows her name.
Oh God Please!
