Song Description

Screaming Walls is a song centered around Domestic violence and Child Abuse. The song is taken from the perspective of a little girl that is constantly confronted with disturbing levels of disharmony in the home. The little girl feels helpless and scared and being so young does not have anyone to turn to but hopes that someone up above or even next door is listening.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written from the viewpoint of a little girl that was living next to me in a block of units. Nightly I would hear her parents having violent screaming matches till the early hours of the morning. I often would hear the little girl crying upstairs through the walls. Unfortunately the little girl did not escape the abuse as often after the parents had finished fighting the mother especially would take her frustration out on the little girl. It was horrible and to think how many little children are in a similar situation, very sad!!

Playlists this song is on:


Did you here the front door slam
Daddy's home and Mummy's mad
I've tried to drown out the sound with the rustling round of my sheets
But there's a war going down with the china she wanted to keep

And I don't wanna stay here
I don't wanna be here
I don't wanna know whats wrong down there
I know that there angry
I can here the walls scream
Not that they would know or even care
I just wanna stay in these four walls
Waiting for the dark to take it all

Lights down, dark sounds
Better be quiet
Cant let them know I listened to their fight
Crayon drawings paint the most perfect families
Wish I could draw a new one just for me


Not one bruise to show, no blow or no black eye
No one sees the scars hidden deep inside


Did you here the front door slam
Daddy's home and Mummy's mad
