to you my favorite mistake
it looks like a second too late
use these words to slit your throat
i meant the words i just wrote

your sick of trying, so am i
you tried another suicide
next time... cut harder

promote your flaws
show your mistakes
6 feet underground
you dig your own grave (2x)

this lead to a loss of sleep
forget you can't forget me
another cut, a loss of blood
why aren't you happy when done

your sick of trying, so am i
you tried another suicide
next time... cut harder

promote your flaws
show your mistakes
6 feet underground
you dig your own grave (2x)

we'll cut harder

promote your flaws
show your mistakes
6 feet underground
you dig your own grave (2x)

    General CommentWanting someone to die is like the worst feeling you can have for them, even more so if you want them to be so miserable they woudl kill themselves. I think only a love so deep can make a hate that deep.

    General CommentSimple...there was a tough break-up, no one's really happy with it...i get the feeling that the song is sung by a guy (and i mean, you can clearly see just how he feels about her), but the line

    'you tried another suicide
    next time... cut harder'

    ...shows that she isnt happy with the breakup either?

    Overall great song by a great band-these guys dont get near enough attention

    General CommentI disagree with whats said above.
    I believe this is about 2 friends. One is deep in depression and leaning on the other. The first friend isn't able to help the other anymore.

    General Commenti think that its going through a hateful break up, where one person did something to the other, whether it be cheating, or anything that just really pissed the other off... and i think that it shows a hateful break up with

    "promote your flaws
    show your mistakes
    6 feet underground
    you dig your own grave"

    whywould u promote ur freinds flaws who is in a depression like said above, i think He hates her for something what ever it is

    General CommentI agree with OooLaLa.
    That's what it sounds like exactly.
    The first friend can't handle trying to keep the other friend alive and happy, too much pressure on them, and they snap.
