"Self Inflicted" as written by and Derek Gledhill Ryan Martin....
You see these cuts and bruises
Isn't this all so amusing
I feel the emptiness of just a another day in hell (day in hell)
My life is so confusing
Do this to myself I'm losing
Guess I'm only proving
What everyone can see but me

And I won't let her hang myself behind me
I cut myself just to feel the pain
And I won't give up anything for you
I'm going down and no one can save me
Were going down and no one can save me

I am cold my legs are shaking
There's no hope right now I'm begging
For just one sight to show me some one out there really cares (really cares)
My clothes are soaked I'm crying
There's no doubt I know I'm dying
I did this to myself and that's the part I can't believe

And I won't let her hang myself behind me
I cut myself just to feel the pain
And I won't give up anything for you
I'm going down and no one can save me
Were going down and no one can save me
Going down and no one can save me

These cuts and bruises are all self inflicted
These cuts and bruises are all self inflicted
These cuts and bruises are all self inflicted
These cuts and bruises are all self inflicted

I won't let her hang myself behind me
I cut myself just to feel the pain
And I won't give up anything for you
Were going down and no one can save me
I'm going down and no one can save me
I'm going down and no one can save me
Wer're going down and no one can save me
Going down and no one can save me

    General CommentThis is a great song and one I can really relate to. Its about self harm and how nobody understands what it feels like to empty and alone. You can't be happy and the pain of the cuts and bruises are the only release from the depression.

    General CommentBasicly it's about harming yourself because if you bleed that means you're alive. And how he just wants someone to care yet he won't let himself be happy.

    General CommentI think the musical aspects could have portrayed a lot more than they did, but the lyrics are pretty damn clear.

    General CommentGood song. I cant say i can completely relate to it but i have self-harmed before and i do know how it feels to be so down that the only way you can feel anything and know your alive is to self harm. I think the meaning is pretty obvious. Its actualyl quite a sad song.

    General CommentI agree with LaDiablo, but its still a kick ass song (music wise)..the lyrics..just like alot of you, i too can relate as well..i still cut..i find it very addicting =/..the song always kinda gets me down..but its good to listen too when your really down and feel like noone else is there to care..SES rules.

    General Commentcutting just dosent hurt, it also realases a chemical into your brain which gives you this small 'rush' or 'buzz'
    its the same chemical that is realesed into your brain when your high.
