I open my eyes, but I still manage to dream.
This cold bathroom floor, now just feels like home to me.
I stumble to the mirror, and I naturally start to clean.
My body's scorned with marks that say "These aren't the last lines that I'll see."
So, please cut this string attached to my wrist.
Buried in my shaking palm, I hold this evil in my fist.
I relive my pain with every scar.
It's a battle field of memories that just won't go away for me.
This world has tied me down, and the knot keeps tightening.
'Cause I'm just a puppet, dangling from this breaking string.
And, maybe I'll turn this blade the other way.
And, roll up my sleeves to let the scars show my mistakes.
So, please cut this string attached to my wrist.
Buried in my shaking palm, I hold this evil in my fist.
I relive my pain with every scar.
It's a battlefield of memories that just won't go away for me.
You couldn't make the cut, so now, you'll make this cut.
You couldn't make the cut, so now, you'll make this cut.
You couldn't make the cut, so now, you'll make this cut.
You couldn't make the cut, so now, you'll make this cut.
I can't breath, I'm in need, where's my crimson savior?
No, I won't crawl back just to bleed.
Forgive me, I promise I'll stay clean.

    General Commenti sit through this.. and cry everytime.

    i try not to.. but the waterworks come anyway.

    it's just.. i've lived this.. i've felt it.
    and it's so powerful, and honest.
    it's just a beautiful song in general.

    *wipes tear*

    General CommentThis song is obviously about a person who cuts themself..."I hold this evil in my fist"..that would be the razor.."I relive my pain, WIth every scar"..scars made from cutting themself..but they also want to stop and they want everyone to forgive them for doing it.."But maybe ill turn this blade the other way....Forgive me, i promise ill stay clean."...this song hits me hard becuase i have a friend that this song describes perfectly

    General CommentI open my eyes,
    But I still manage to dream.
    And this cold bathroom floor,
    Now just feels like home to me.
    Well I stumble to the mirror,
    And I naturally start to clean.
    But my bodys scorned with marks,
    I say "These arn't the last lines that I'll see"

    - "These arn't the last lines that I'll see" knowing that you'll cut again.



    But this rope has tied me down,
    And the knot keeps tightening.
    'Cause I'm just a puppet,
    Dangeling from this breaking string.
    And maybe I'll turn this blade the other way,
    And roll up my sleaves to let the scars show my mistakes.

    - Shows a person who self-injures who feels they have no control over their life, often this is why people cut, to feel the pain and see the blood, to prove they are real.



    I can't breathe,
    I'm in need.
    Where's my crimson saviour?
    No I won't crawl back just to bleed,
    Forgive me, I promise I'll stay clean.

    - Crimson saviour being the blood, often the whole point of cutting is to see the blood, its such a relief and it becomes addictive, each time you do it, you want to see more and more blood.

    General CommentAmazing song. My friend showed me this song, and said - I know you will like this. I can understand why. It used to describe me, but I stopped that because I thought - " Where will this get me?"
