Buck 65

Buck 65 - Cries A Girl

I was raised on a dirt road, ghost town

Stray dogs hold down, the gold mine closed down

I knew the woods like the back of my hand

And I would shoot the breeze with the roots of trees

Go down by the river and watch the way the devil dances

But never took his hand even though I did have several chances

Everybody slipped when the morning dew turned to frost

Darkness moved in, somebody burned the cross

A girl named Stellar Kewan was prettier than you'd imagine

The town should've given her the crown for the beauty pageant

But instead some local pinheads started spreading rumours

About the Kewan's being in-breds, and what's worse

People believed it cause the family was dirt poor

Down on the luck so that made it hurt more

Pickin' up garbage and mowin' the grass

At this point Stellar stopped going to class

You know how they ridiculed the kid in school and this shit's

Enough to make anybody feel like a misfit

She made herself invisible and hid inside a house of mirrors

Whenever the fear stops so did the tear drops

But fear is forever and lies become legend

Growing eventually, slowing exponentially

She should have been a cover girl treated like a princess

But she's an enigma haunted by the stigma of incest

She tried to hide the scars, her name reminds me of the stars

I saw diamonds divide, corners of her eyes

She tried to hide the scars, her name reminds me of the stars

I saw diamonds divide, corners of her eyes

One horse town known for the most softest

Little old school house, burned down post office

Blueberries and bullrushes, a tree with a tire swing

Volunteer firemen's fared the whole entire thing

Stellar was heartbroken, decided to start smokin'

Bad taste in her mouth, she drew to a sad face

Her few friends were worried and her parents were always proud of her

But she never escaped from under the cloud cover

A woman reduced, she was eaten by a monster

And after all these years, her past still haunts her

And whispers her name when she's trying instead

To just listen to music while she's lying in bed

Now the story of Stellar is one that every child knows

But the witch in the woods is more like a wild rose

She tried to hide the scars, her name reminds me of the stars

I saw diamonds divide, corners of her eyes

She tried to hide the scars, her name reminds me of the stars

I saw diamonds divide, corners of her eyes
