Sometimes my walls just crumble at your feet
My kind of tears you refuse to see
I know my pain is the last thing that you need
But you gave me life but you got to watch me bleed

I think it's time I carved your name into my arm
Just a little reminder that you're there and I'm alone

You knew for years I've been hemorrhaging my tears
You've seen my heartache just leaking through my sleeve
My scars will tell you all the thoughts inside my head
Maybe the next time you won't wake me from my bed

I think it's time I carved your name into my arm
Just a little reminder that you're there and I'm alone

Razorblade, jagged tin, anything to break my skin
Who wants a little sin, I'll share the bed my body's in
This body's in

Sometimes my walls just crumble at your feet
My kind of tears you refuse to see
I know my pain is the last thing that you need
But you gave me life but you got to watch me bleed

I think it's time I carved your name into my arm
Just a little reminder that you're there and I'm alone

    General CommentSelf-explanatory lyrics, but they're so spot on for certain situations that they verge on perfection.
