"Domestic abuse: It can take on numerous forms, including physical, verbal, emotional, economic and sexual abuse. Violence, threats, intimidation, blackmail... common with this. I've written a few songs on this subject since 2001 ('Battered', 'Rage Absolute', 'All For You', 'Snap', 'One To Kill'). The new song 'Psycho Ward' is the next to cover this issue.
Let's call it 'fictional'; about a total narcissistic, insecure, evil person who sees all others as beneath him. Wife, kids, family are simply property and money is the only way to be 'someone' or 'something' in life. Family is only a 'status' thing and, when it starts to question or want to escape from the intimidation / abuse, it is either physically beat down to prevent escape or it's 'conditioned' to shut up, take it and do what it's told. In the end, this asshole got what he deserved, yet only after severely damaging his family.
In real life, assholes like this cause unbelievable psychological damage to their children and (former or current) partners, yet they are so psychopathic or evil or narcissistic to even care: it's all about them ('Poor me!') and they are never wrong; always someone else's fault. I've heard some horrible stories about women / men being put out for the night with the family dog, punched in the face, kicked, pushed down stairs, raped, terrorized, threatened with horrible violence, etc. Young children told they were fat, no good, losers, an embarrassment and the abuser's sick beliefs forced on them... to be just like him / her or they were failures.
While tough to get out of, those who do have a chance at life. Victims of these abusers can get through life but often the damage is permanent. Scarred.
Love to all you survivors out there. There's hope and help and good people out there that can help. More on that later."
