The white hot searing torment is burning out in pain;
hold the knife above my face…. Prepare to stab again.
Your tortured face is stained with red and drips into my eye
grimace of pain, but just for a moment as I lie
(I’ll get through this, I’m okay, everything will be alright?)
Oh the things I’ve told myself to keep from cutting in the night

The blood it seeps and gurgles and dribbles down my chin
Feel the skull bone splinter, it’s fragile now and thin
My mouth is filled with redness, a thousand shaken cries 
But my mouth is gasping for salvation from the skies
Mind tingling numb…slowly it’s sinking in
Now has come the red reward for all my hidden sin
Slowly you exhale and let out a brief sign …
This is what you did to me each time you said goodbye.
