"Sharp Edges" as written by and Chester Bennington Bradford Delson....
Mama always told me "Don't you run",
"Don't you run with scissors, son.
You're gonna hurt someone."
Mama told me "Look before you leap",
"Always think before you speak, and watch the friends you keep."

Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said...

Sharp edges have consequences, I,
Guess that I had to find out for myself.
Sharp edges have consequences, now,
Every scar is a story I can tell.

Should've played it safer from the start.
Loved you like a house of cards.
I let it fall apart.
But all the things I couldn't understand,
And never could've planned,
They made me who I am.
Put your nose in paperbacks,
Instead of smoking cigarettes.
These are years you're never getting back.

Stay along the beaten path, I never listened when she said...

Sharp edges have consequences, I,
Guess that I had to find out for myself.
Sharp edges have consequences, now,
Every scar is a story I can tell.

We all fall down.
We live somehow.
We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
We all fall down.
We live somehow.
We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh.

So stay along the beaten path, I never listened when she said...

Sharp edges have consequences, I,
Guess that I had to find out for myself.
Sharp edges have consequences, now,
Every scar is a story I can tell.

We all fall down.
We live somehow.
We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
We all fall down.
We live somehow.
We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger.
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh.

    My InterpretationI think it explains how some NEED to learn from their own mistakes and experiences rather than observing others.
