The Lyrics

This was a request from my L. Arts Teacher Ms. Unger.
Who doesn't know how to get around
Who's never been mugged or knocked out
To get away from their home
And go safely to a building made of stone

Many precede and many will follow
A young girl's screams so mellow
It takes the shape of a place out left
But what it holds for her, doesn't let her rest

She needs variety of maces
Gouge out eyes with big rakes
She needs safe places
She knows the high stakes

She travelled this road as a child
Wide eyed and grinning, she's never mild
But now she won't be coming back with the rest
If someone comes out, they will take a knee below the chest

[Repeat Chorus]
She knows the high stakes

As her folks drive away, her dad yells, "Never be Loyal"
Mom stares out the window and says, "I'm leaving my pearl"
She says, It didn't seem like that long ago
When she was stalked and left on the go

[Repeat Chorus]
She knows the high stakes
She knows the high stakes
She knows the high stakes
She knows the high stakes
