Cutting yourself to relieve the pain,
Try to believe that you're sane,
Self mutilation for self redemption,
Now you're on your own.
Cutting yourself your despondency,
Mental distress overwhelming now,
Cold blunt steel now is critical,
Now you're on your own.

Severe emotional distress

Seperate the anguish,
seperate this fear,
Seperate from sadness,
Now I see things much too clear.

Cutting yourself a dependency,
Anxiety mixed with agony,
Bleed out the grief with a knife,
Now you're on your own.
Cutting yourself end this wretchedness,
Tribulation will not finish this,
Lacerations cannot help you,
Now you're on your own.

    General CommentWell, if you've ever seen the video, it's actually pretty sad - about some girl (who's obviously emo as fuck) resorting to cutting herself for some reason while the band seems to be shouting at her from a small, locked up room (her mind?)

    IE's basically saying "don't cut yourself emo kid!"

    General Commentit basically says that cutting yourself does not help at all, which pretty much makes sense to all us non-emo normal people
