You're taking care of your instincts
No matter what you do
Your life could be so much better
When everything is through
The demons that refused to let you go
They left with empty hands
You got to give it a try
Don't put an end to your life
'Cause that's where you choke your last sigh

You gotta rise with me!
Cause you're so vulnerable.
No need for sympathy now
Yet so admirable

Your passion for art is your well hidden cure
'Cause that's where you have a plan
Escaping could be such a movement now
In your fragile heart all so true

You'll never ever hurt yourself again!

    General CommentShould be about a person whose friend plans to make suicide. He wants to help him to forget his suicidal hurts, stop hurting himself and build a normal life again.

    General CommentI'll have to agree with XCrusherX, that's exactly what I thought. "Don't put an end to your life 'cause that's where you showed your last sign". In this situation the singer's friend is planning to commit suicide, and he's telling him not to do it. Suicide also explains the name, Departure Plan. Someone who's planning to commit suicide is planning a departure from this world.

    this band is a huge in flames fan, its cool how these guys are from gothenburg too, and sort of in league with in flames, sound that same, awesome musical talents like in flames, and now i find out the lyrics are all emo and awesome like in flames..
