I've got a problem
A problem with hate
I can't go on dragging this weight
A cold steel hand that won't let go
Acid-filled thoughts out of control

I built myself a nice little cage
With bars of anger and a lock of rage
I can't help asking Who's got the key?
When I know damned well it's me

No I ain't hinting for sympathy
I'm used to dealing with apathy
The scars on my wrists may seem like a crime
Just wish me better luck next time

So what if I died a thousand deaths
You think I'm insane but I have no regrets
One more time won't matter no question
Suicide is self expression

    General CommentThere are so many other ways to express ones self... Why suicide?
    I do not agree with anyone being allowed to sing lyrics like these (Suicide is self expression) because you can not know if some kid will misinterpret and actually kill him self just to relate to his role model.

    Anyway, I love tOn and really dig Pete's lyrics, it's just that, I think - in this song the last line should have been omitted for the sake of light headed teenagers (and there are many of them in the world).
