Cause someone beat her ass for years, someone calmly watched
Na, stepdaddy beat her ass, mommy watched
At first Joe tell’s you that his girl was beaten by “someone” for year and “someone” who could of helped her just calmly watched then he quickly intensifies the verse by telling us that it was her step dad that constantly beat her and it was her own mother that just idly watched and did nothing about it. The effect of this verse revolves around the whole concept of the song, Joe is giving us all the details, he’s not holding anything back.
