Larkin Grimm releases new song, “written for all the survivors of abuse” (listen)

Larkin Grimm

Following Larkin Grimm posting her story that describes an incident where she was raped by Swans frontman Michael Gira in 2008, she’s released a new song “I Don’t Believe.” She says, “This song was written for all the survivors of abuse. You are not alone.” Listen below. Here are the lyrics:

I don’t believe you ever could be
So like those men around you.
So hungry.
I don’t believe you ever think about it
But you remember words like they were more than music.

I don’t believe you could ever be that way
Addicted to the pleasure, the things that people say.
I wrote this poem for you on your birthday,
Your mother read the poem
And said it couldn’t be you
Nothing so beautiful
Could come from something I made.
I don’t believe you.

I don’t believe you
You hear your mother cry
I wish that I could die
I wish that you would die too
So I could play outside
I could be free with you.
I don’t believe you.

I don’t believe you need to think about it
But you remember words like they were more than music.
You hear the words I’m speaking as more than poetry.
