Sometimes words can't paint my tears as well as a razor can...

My pain cries out, but no one hears,

Or maybe they don't understand.
Sometimes words can't paint my tears
As well as a razor can...

I often try to make it pretty
As if that could tone the pain down,
Like a crying clown that tries to be witty
While under his smile lies a frown...

But even when no part of it shows
Istill can feel the sting
Of the story told through blood that flows;
Of the song that I can't sing...

If someday I should go too far
Please know I meant no harm;
I only hoped to heal life's scars
By wearing them on my arm.
