"The sweetness of death by the obsidian knife" as written by and Tim Wheeler....
I've got a flight
And its leaving tonight
Lord Help me, I'm feeling blue
I'm leaving my life behind me
When I go I'm leaving you

I've got a flight
And its leaving tonight
In the slipstream, I will find my space
Make my way to Tijuana
Beneath the stars, I will escape

The vast ocean, of emotions are dead to me
My mind is cold, and my heart is numb
Lack of sleep and no melatonin
There's no shelter on the run

You opened my arms to a million stars
Took my heart and you tore it apart
But there's no regrets, no pain remains
I've turned away, and I cannot stay

The London rain will remain a memory
Locked away in a blood red box
Your voice only an echo inside of me
I don't look back in my thoughts

You opened my arms to a million stars
Took my heart and you tore it apart
But there's no regrets, no pain remains
I've turned away, and I cannot stay

The sun rise, the tides will ebb and flow
The days will come and the days will go
I live only for what's ahead of me
Life is short is all that I know

The sun will rise tomorrow
Of all things that is certain
Though nothing in my life is certain anymore

    General CommentI think it's about self harm over somebody who has left him?
