"Razorblade Salvation" is track 12 on the Jedi Mind Tricks album "Servants in Heaven, Kings in Hell" which was the group's 5th studio album, released in 2006. At that time the group was only composed...
I know that times were hard
I know that you've been feelin' down
If you only knew how I'm feelin' for you
If I could take your pain
I wish that I could wash it all away
If you only knew how I'm feelin'

Mommy I'm sorry if my first letter made you cry
To be honest with you I don't think that I wanna die
Sometimes I feel like that I'm cancerous in others lives
That's prolley why I drink at night and sleep till 4 or 5
It's kinda hard walking through life with my distorted eyes
When I was younger I was stupid and I thought I thrived
I thought a lot about everything I said in the letter
And questioned whether or not if I was dead you'd be better
You think my shorty would be happy if I never met her
It's too late now mommy I could never forget her
Could never forget how she told me to love
'cause my father and my grandmother is always above
It's glory above you know that daddy taught me to thug
And everytime we was with nanny she'd bombard me with hugs[damn]
I MISS 'EM mommy and it's hard to believe
That I've grown and I don't understand that why did they leave

(Better to die and sleep then never wake and sleep
Then linger on and dare to live when your souls life is gone)

You've been runnin' around for so long
You've been hurting yourself too much
You keep messin' around with darkness
You're the one whose losin x2

Mommy I think I'm'a that try to stick around a while
I got a niece and my nephews they need me around a while
I think they need me 'cause they hittin that age
And they ain't tryin to speak to Lenny 'cause they spittin' they rage
And mommy speakin of Lenny I think my brother need me
And we Italian so you know my mother loved to feed me
And it's the little things you do for me that make it worth it
Like when I play a joint that we did and you say it's perfect
And when Jay got knocked you knew that I was hurt
You told me to my heart in a song and it worked
I promised him I'd be there when he got out the bing
You ain't raised me to be a liar ma' that's not my thing
I told him that I'd hold him down the whole time that he gone
They kept him locked in a cage but that's cool 'cause he's strong
So mommy keep that first letter I wrote you on the low
I think I wanna stay alive and see if I can grow

You've been runnin' around for so long
You've been hurting yourself too much
You keep messin' around with darkness
You're the one whose losing x2



I know that times were hard
I know that you've been feelin' down
If you only knew how I'm feelin' for you
If I could take your pain
I wish that I could wash it all away
If you only knew how I'm feelin'

    General CommentCrazy record. Stoupe on that beat, and Worden on that hook, along with Vinnie on the verses, this song is sick-wit-it. Very powerful too, with the way he evolves from the beginning to the end with

    "So mommy keep that first letter I wrote you on the low//
    I think I wanna stay alive to see if I can grow//"

    puts the song on a whole 'nother level...

    General CommentBefore The Great Collapse is more hard hitting than this i think, because it seems as though he's actualy gonna commit suicide, rather than changing his mind at the end. Both classics though.

    General CommentThis song is amazing.
    Before the great collapse is the Negative , Looking at the glass half empty Letter.
    It seems as if he's actually gonna commit suicide.
    In this Song its like the other side , The Positives, The reasons why he shouldn't kill himself opposed to being negative in the other letter

    General CommentYeah forreal, such a deep song, really speaks to me. just commin outta being real depressed an shit this really helps.
    To me its just a guy going through a state of revelations, deceiding against taking his life cause like its just the only life you got, an theres so much to enjoy..like no matter whats in your past, thats allo it is, the past, i mean the ocean will always have waves, but you just gotta look through them, not let anything get you down..just a real nice song, gives me a push to push myself foward

    General CommentPaz writes from experience. People don't understand how close to suicide Vinnie Paz was. This song would've never been written. Crazy huh.
