Story behind the song
sometimes kids in the foster system end up on the street and they get sucked into a lifestyle they never wanted to be in
Lyrics
Victim of the system She looks like The back side of thirty Yet shes only twenty one She lives life the hard way Like a felon on the run She hangs near the light pole Beneath its spotlight Watching for the drive bys To find her Mr. Right Chorus: Shes a victim of the system Runaway from home Prisoner of some foster care Where lots of kids are thrown She ran out and cant let go Of a life thats sucked her dry So she hides behind her makeup She puts on to disguise She never sees their faces For each one looks the same Another John feeds her habit And the system all to blame She parties with the fellas Tangles with the chicks Makes a living sinning Selling dope and turning tricks Chorus: Shes a victim of the system Runaway from home Prisoner of some foster care Where lots of kids are thrown She ran out and cant let go Of a life thats sucked her dry So she hides behind her makeup She puts on to disguise Bridge: Shes killing time and herself Each day shes on her feet Waiting for a chance to Escape the angry street And then one night a light comes on Shes reaches out to him He has tried to help her in the past But she never would give in The preacher takes her hand and walks her to The mission down the street She prays that he can ease her pain And resurrect her from these streets Chorus: Shes a victim of the system Runaway from home Prisoner of some foster care Where lots of kids are thrown She ran out long ago And chose the broken road But tonight she sees a future As he carries her heavy load (repeat) She ran out long ago And chose the broken road But tonight she sees a future As he carries her heavy load As he carries her heavy load (Fade out) Victim of the system Victim of the system Victim of the system Written by Mike McCorison 2011
