Razor Cuts

My pain engulfs me drowning my soul
Only one way for relief so i'm told
I could jump from a cliff or dance in front of a train
These are ways to get rid of my pain
But as peaceful as death seems, its not my choice
So I bleed from cuts, a razor's my voice
Screaming my pain for all to hear, even the deaf will feel
Cutting my body for all to see, even the blind will sqeal
As the blood flows from the razor's cuts, pain now escapes me
So i'll keep cutting, careful not to die, and live by the razor, pain free
For life
