Domestic violence is a harsh reality that many face behind closed doors, often in silence, and often with children in tow. This piece sheds a light on the terror and fear that victims experience, as well as the unintended and devastating consequences that may follow.

Lyrics

I Can’t Get Into It
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Gone are those crazy nights
Gone the lies an’ the daily dread
His footsteps on the stairs
As I lay in bed
Won’drin’ how I’d ever make it
Through the next fight
His next sadistic manic delight

911 – Help! Yeah, it’s me again
This time I don’t got nowhere ta’ run
An’ this time I gonna use this gun
Don’t be tellin’ me ta’ cool it
I ain’t foolin’
This time it’s the last time
No more apologies
No more cold sweats
No more second chances
No more fake regrets

Cuz I can’t get into it
I jus’ want out of it
This time I’m done with it
So whadya gonna do

He won’t get over it
He’ll make a thing of it
But I can’t get into it
I’m done with it through an’ through

He comes
Staggerin’ down the hall
Bloodshot
Fire is in his eyes
Door locked
We have been here before
Half cocked
Juiced up an’ wantin’ more
An’ now he comes for me
He wants me

But I can’t get into it
I jus’ want out of it
This time I’m done with it
So what am I gonna do

He’ll never get over it
I’ve tried ta’ handle it
But now I can’t get into it
No, I’m done with it through an’ through

Gone are the black an’ blues
Gone the days of my hidden bruises
No more empty promises What’s the use?
Don’t be tellin’ me ta’ cool it
This time it’s the last time
No more apologies
No more lost hope
No more second chances
Just the straight dope

Baby, I can’t get into it
I jus’ want out of it
This time I’m done with it
So whadya gonna do

You won’t get over it
You’ll make a thing of it
But I can’t get into it
It’s over now through an’ through

Children hide
They know their Daddy’s home
Wide eyed
An’ terrified down to the bone

Daddy cries
But it never worked before
He lies, he lies
Then he starts breakin down the door
I knew then
It was just all wrong
I tried
But he wouldn’t go along
Same old song
Same old song

An’ I can’t get into it
I can’t get into it

No, I can’t get into it
I jus’ want out of it
This time I’m done with it
So what am I gonna do

He’ll never get over it
I’ve tried ta’ handle it
But now I can’t get into it
No, I’m done with it through an’ through

I can’t get into it
I can’t get into it
I can’t get into it
I can’t get into it

I can’t
I can’t
I can’t get into it

I can’t
I can’t
I can’t get into it

I can’t
I can’t
I can’t get into it

I can’t

[Breath]
