She had excuses and she chose to use them
She was the victim of unspeakable abuses
Her husband was violent, malicious and distant
Her kids now belong to the state of Massachusetts!

They've been taken away!!
They've been taken away!!

[Chorus:]
Billy was the bright one, Tommy's off his head
Mother loved them both the same
At least thats what she said
I don't predict the future
I don't care about the past
Send them both to D.S.S
Now you had your chance
The posion stole your babies
The judges took your rights
You can have your children or the night!!!

I supposed you've been a victim
Though I suspect you may have lied
Have you lost all ambition
Won't you give this thing a try
If you can't and you fail won't be the only loser
These kid don't stand a chance with you in their future!!

They've been taken away!!
They've been taken away!!

[Chorus]

The posion stole your babies
The judges took your rights
You can have your children or the night!!!

[Chorus]
