Concrete Angel
"Concrete Angel" is a power ballad, centering around a main theme of child abuse. The narrator tells a story about a little girl (named Angela Carter in the music video) who's trying to deal with abuse from her alcoholic mother. Some people, including the girl's teacher, seem to notice signs of abuse, but just try to ignore it. The little girl keeps mostly to herself, showing she doesn't have the life a kid should have, but she has one best friend. He is the only other one who really knows what's going on.
