Lock the door to your room
Pray they don't find us
Pray they don't kick it down
Oh you've been keeping secrets
And these kind of lies
Have consequences

So many possibilities
For this to all end badly
It's almost guaranteed
Nothing but shame and paranoia
A slightly desperate feeling
To calm you to sleep

What could we have done
To deserve a violence like this
What could we have done
To deserve a violence like this

Watch a lot coming under the door
Listen for footsteps coming down the hall
No you don't know why ?
Just know how it feels
And there's nothing they can do or say
To change anything

And if you don't understand it
I am not sorry at all
Ain't no heaven or hell that
Could tell us we are wrong

What could we have done
To deserve a violence like this
What could we have done
To deserve a violence like this

What could we have done
To deserve a violence like this
What could we have done
To deserve a violence like this
