Eleventh Commandment
by Collin Raye



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

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
