The few colors most people would think nothing of that have a deeper meaning to some.

Black, Silver, and Red

Black, silver, and red

These are the colors I need

These shades to my pain feed

They all must be

Just for a second of free

 

Black in the mix of night

Help me to hide my deepest fight

Surround me in ebony

Feeling abused by everything life gives to me

 

Silver in the sleek of the blade

No matter what I try the cuts never fade

Bring me peace while the shine break my skin

Help me bring the pain to an end

 

Red stains cloth hidden from view

People think they know me but the don't have a clue

The blood that drips down my arm

Let the red water show me the harm

 

Black, silver, and red

These are the colors I once held dear

But the danger all came to near

My grave surrounded by night

Stars shine on me in silver light

Red roses lay on the grass

Peace and comfort forever at last
