    THE GATHERING: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiBDjCFUBxg
    Saturnine

    The day you went away
    You had to screw me over
    I guess you didn't know
    all the stuff you left me with
    is way too much to handle
    But I guess you don't care

    You don't need to preach
    you don't have to love me, all the time

    Whatever on earth possessed you
    to make this bold decision
    I guess you don't need me
    While whispering those words
    I cried like a baby
    hoping you would care

    You don't need to preach
    you don't have to love me, all the time

    You don't have to preach
    all the time


    Concrete Angel: (triggering) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2lZsmrFT4g

    She walks to school with the lunch she packed
    Nobody knows what she's holdin' back
    Wearin' the same dress she wore yesterday
    She hides the bruises with linen and lace

    The teacher wonders but she doesn't ask
    It's hard to see the pain behind the mask
    Bearing the burden of a secret storm
    Sometimes she wishes she was never born

    Through the wind and the rain
    She stands hard as a stone
    In a world that she can't rise above
    But her dreams give her wings
    And she flies to a place where she's loved
    Concrete angel

    Somebody cries in the middle of the night
    The neighbors hear, but they turn out the lights
    A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate
    When morning comes it'll be too late

    [Repeat Chorus]

    A statue stands in a shaded place
    An angel girl with an upturned face
    A name is written on a polished rock
    A broken heart that the world forgot

    The following 2 songs are played at abuse rally's within in the UK.

    Something inside so strong:~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcbpsYj1LXw

    The higher you build your barriers
    The taller I become
    The farther you take my rights away
    The faster I will run
    You can deny me
    You can decide to turn your face away
    No matter, cos there's....

    Something inside so strong
    I know that I can make it
    Tho' you're doing me wrong, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone
    Oh no, something inside so strong
    Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong

    The more you refuse to hear my voice
    The louder I will sing
    You hide behind walls of Jericho
    Your lies will come tumbling
    Deny my place in time
    You squander wealth that's mine
    My light will shine so brightly
    It will blind you
    Cos there's......

    Something inside so strong
    I know that I can make it
    Tho' you're doing me wrong, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone
    Oh no, something inside so strong
    Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong

    Brothers and sisters
    When they insist we're just not good enough
    When we know better
    Just look 'em in the eyes and say
    I'm gonna do it anyway
    I'm gonna do it anyway

    Something inside so strong
    And I know that I can make it
    Tho' you're doing me wrong, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone
    Oh no, something inside so strong
    Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong

    Brothers and sisters
    When they insist we're just good not enough
    When we know better
    Just look 'em in the eyes and say
    I'm gonna do it anyway
    I'm gonna do it anyway
    I'm gonna do it anyway
    I'm gonna do it anyway

    Because there's something inside so strong
    And I know that I can make it
    Tho' you're doing me, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone
    Oh no, something inside so strong
    Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong

    Because there's something inside so strong
    And I know that I can make it
    Tho' you're doing me, so wrong
    You thought that my pride was gone
    Oh no, something inside so strong
    Oh oh oh oh oh something inside so strong


    I will survive:~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv6lHwWwO3w

    First I was afraid
    I was petrified
    Kept thinking I could never live
    without you by my side
    But I spent so many nights
    thinking how you did me wrong
    I grew strong
    I learned how to carry on
    and so you're back
    from outer space
    I just walked in to find you here
    with that sad look upon your face
    I should have changed my stupid lock
    I should have made you leave your key
    If I had known for just one second
    you'd be back to bother me

    Go on now go walk out the door
    just turn around now
    'cause you're not welcome anymore
    weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
    you think I'd crumble
    you think I'd lay down and die
    Oh no, not I
    I will survive
    as long as i know how to love
    I know I will stay alive
    I've got all my life to live
    I've got all my love to give
    and I'll survive
    I will survive

    It took all the strength I had
    not to fall apart
    kept trying hard to mend
    the pieces of my broken heart
    and I spent oh so many nights
    just feeling sorry for myself
    I used to cry
    Now I hold my head up high
    and you see me
    somebody new
    I'm not that chained up little person
    still in love with you
    and so you felt like dropping in
    and just expect me to be free
    now I'm saving all my loving
    for someone who's loving me
