The Eleventh Commandment




She hears his heavy breathing in the dark
His footsteps coming closer down the hall
She's so ashamed, she's daddy's secret love
She wants to cry, she wants to die, but he can't get enough
The bruises on his face will go away
Mom keeps him home from school till they fade
She's sorry he was born and tells him so
He takes it in, he hangs his chin, he ducks another blow

Did God overlook it
What ought have been written
The eleventh commandment
Honor thy children

He cries for hours, cries and never stops
He shakes so hard his little cradle rocks
He'll never have the chance to be brand new
He'll never walk, he'll never talk, he's addicted too

Did God overlook it
What ought have been written
The eleventh commandment
Honor thy children

Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not steal
Thou shalt not take the Lord's name in vain
Thou shalt not cause thy children pain

God does not overlook it
What ought have been written
The eleventh commandment
Honor thy children
Honor thy children

Hey, Thanks. I ran across your site completely by accident, and yet it couldn't be completely by accident. I really was looking for something related to sailing, its a real passion of mine, and yet I too was sexually abused by my brother when I was yound. Thank GOD it didn't last long and I've grown to the old age of 51, and I've learned many a lesson, many of them relating to why, what's important and why, and what's really good in this world. Thank you for being couragous ! I thought I was and still do think I'm well adjusted to everything, facing reality head on, and I'm cool. Not sure if I'll show up again or not, but you really hit home tonite, THANKS for the info on the things I hadn't thought of.

Thank you so much for sharing this disturbing and heartbreaking song and video with us. But we need to be disturbed! Adults are breaking children's hearts, destroying their trust, killing their spirits. Yes, we need the 11th commandment!

I will be posting this to my Facebook community page at OUT FROM UNDER and also on the video page of my information site at VIGALAND Thanks for letting us know about this video and we welcome your articles at Vigaland too.

I was raised a Catholic in the 50's when they preached it was a sin to be homosexual. I lost my religion when I hit my 20's but because I was a boy scout leader in Texas a few years back, I became aware pedophelia was an epidemic and wondered how and why!!

I noticed in the Holy bible is lists homosexual as a sin specifically in many versions BUT NO VERSION LISTS PEDOPHILE. I have phoned the the College of Catholic Bishops to point this out but they ignore me.

I think there is a hole in the Bible.

Good point... Jesus never mentioned homosexuality in the Gospel accounts but he said if anyone mislead a child he would be better to tie a large boulder round his legs and jump in a deep ocean!
