Beneath The Destruction is a Christian band that takes pride in promoting positivity. BTD is an extremely passionate band with a sound that crosses between contemporary metalcore and mainstream nu-metal. They wrote their song about remaining strong through times of tribulation. They compare a victim of sexual abuse having their innocence taken from them to a flower having it’s pedals ripped away.

The line “there’s victory in forgiveness” reminds me of a crucial point we have learned along our journey – forgiveness is not saying that everything that happened was okay or right, but the acceptance that we can’t change anything that happened. The track ends with the line “and let the thieves of innocence know that we are not weak” – a strong reminder for both assailants and victims alike.

To Smash A Predator lyrics by Beneath The Destruction

The face in the mirror wants to break you down
Wondering how it all went so wrong
How did we get here and what gave them the right
To sacrifice your youth on the alter of abuse?
Your past does not define you
Their crimes can not confine you
Through the darkness the light will find you to remind you
There’s freedom in forgiveness
There’s triumph in overcoming
There’s victory in the cross
For the lost and forsaken

I once saw a flower in bloom
Then someone came and snatched the flower from fertile ground
And one by one began to pluck the petals
Til there was nothing left but a bud
Pain is not a distant memory for this flower
But a constant state of being

Pain is not a distant memory
But a constant state of being
A puddle forms at the feet
Of the bravest of souls that this world has ever seen
Fighting through the tears

So dry your eyes, my child
And leave your tattered past behind
The crimes against you will not define you
Or who you will be
They took your innocence
You had no control
You paid the price and have nothing to show
What if I could tell you the fill to your void
Be redeemed because Christ is love

And let the thieves of innocence know
That we are not weak
And let the thieves of innocence know
We are not weak
We are not weak
Let them know that we are not
Let them know that we are not weak

The crimes against you will not define you
So lay your burdens at the foot of his throne
The crimes against you will not define you
So lay your burdens at his feet
The crimes against you will not define you
So lay your burdens at his feet
