I sit and pick my brain each night
With an axe in my hand held tight
Bite my nose to spite my face
Killing myself, I can't escape the rat race
Wallowing in neck-deep misery
Quicksand dissent, pressure free
Deepest wounds are self inflicted
Should I hope to be vindicated

Always alone, society's abortion
Self mutilation, the daily partion
Resentful past breeds hopeful future
With tears of blood, I remove the sutures

Dying inside, emotions they hide
Irreparable damage from the tears that I've cried
I climb from the sewer, the years that I have
Self mutilation or my environment

[Chorus: Repeat x2]
Tears of blood, tears of blood
I cry, I cry
Tears of blood, tears of blood
I die

Deny myself for fear of being
Is it over now, has my heart stopped beating
Lying here just self defeating
My mind is empty, it won't stop bleeding
Twisted anger screams my brain
Over the edge, I hang in pain
Mouth locked shut my mind won't swallow
With tears of blood alone I wallow

No one to blame except myself
What you call masochism I call wealth
Maybe its just a matter of pride
Too sweet to end with suicide

Peel the scab, pour salt in the wound
Torturing myself, I'm forever doomed
Looking east and west each and every moon
A peaceful rest comes somebody soon

No one to blame expect myself
What you call masochism I call wealth
Is death life and do we live in hell?

[Chorus: Repeat x3]

    General Commenttears of blood are tears from past. tears of blood are tears from guilt, tears to get out. we live in life. we go to heaven/hell. wichever one, we still must go through life. u must resolve ur own problems to get by life. u must love urself to love life. life can be everything u ever wanted, but so can heaven. God is always there, hand on ur shoulder even if u do not believe in him. he is the only one who is always there. to feel guilt forever is to waste ur own life. forget u are forgiven.
