Oh, that I could scream
And the world would stop and listen
And these scars could speak in volumes
But who has ears to hear
Or eyes to see
Again I scream
But my voice is buried in an unearthly silence
Like in nightmares when ghosts steal your breath.
I pray that power be not in my words
But in truth that supercedes the mind of man
And our dead hope, and our blind faith in means that look to justify the ends.
I feel a presence in the room
I feel cold fingers close around my neck.
With out you I am lost.
Let mine eyes not fail with looking upward

    General CommentSeems like some pathetic emo lyrics to me. People that are really suicidal do it right the first time. I'm sick of hearing about people that try to kill themselves by slitting their wrists. Slit it by length, not by width. If you are "crying for help" Just go to a psychiatrist instead of doing it for scars to scare sane people.
