Eleventh Commandment
by Collin Raye



She hears his heavy breathing in the dark
His footsteps commin' closer down the hall
She's so ashamed she's daddy's secret love
She wants to die, she wants to cry
But he can't get enough

The bruses on his face will go away
Mom keeps him home from school 'til 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 craddle 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 shall not kill
Thou shall not steal
Thou shall not take the Lords name in vain
Thou shall not cause thy children pain

God Does not overlook it
What ought have been written
The Eleventh Commandment
Honor thy children
Honor thy children
