      • Let's go!

        I kissed the scars on her skin
        I still think you're beautiful
        And I don't ever wanna lose my best friend.
        I screamed out, "God, you vulture (you vulture),
        Bring her back or take me with her."

        Tear it down, break the barricade
        I want to see what sound it makes
        I hate this flavor with a passion and I fucking hate the aftertaste

        How does it feel? (How does it feel?)
        How does it feel? Well it feels like I'm on fire!
        Wake up, I know you can hear me.

        Make me a promise here tonight, love like a tidal wave
        Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way
        The chemicals will bring you home again
        This is it, when it's done, we can say that,
        When it's sudden death we fight back
        (Oh, yeah)

        Pretend like I don't entice you
        I've seen you circling the sky above my head
        You traitor

        I will never be taken for granted again
        Keep digging holes in the desert
        Say a prayer for you

        I know that you're in pain
        But if we die at the same time does it still scare you?

        Make me a promise here tonight. Let's go!
        Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way
        The chemicals will bring you home again
        This is it, when it's done, we can say that,
        Oh my God we're not gonna make it

        We will bring the tidal wave
        We will bring the tidal wave
        We will bring the tidal wave
        We will bring the tidal wave!

        We will bring the tidal wave
        We will bring the tidal wave
        We will bring the tidal wave
        And nothing will remain

        She's mine
        You stay away from her
        It's not her time.
        'Cause, baby, I'm the one
        Who haunts her dreams at night,
        Until she's satisfied.

        Make me a promise here tonight, love like a tidal wave
        Dreamless in early graves, I never want it to be this way
        The chemicals will bring you home again
        This is it, when it's done, we can say that,
        When it's sudden death we fight back!

        Go!

        Fuck it!

      • Been torn apart, 
        Got so many scratches and scars, 
        Maybe they wont all go away, 
        But they'll fade, 
        Maybe time can mend us together.. again. 
        Its not what we've done but, how far we've come. 

        We will recover 
        The worst is over, now. 
        All those fires we've been walking through, 
        And still we survive, somehow. 
        We will recover 
        The worst is behind 
        And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover. 
        (Yeah yeah) 

        Got so much to lose, 
        Seems I've lost my power to choose, oh 
        What to love and when to let go, 
        That all changed, 
        Get bitten once and then your afraid 
        What a waste, 
        Look what we've done, 
        How far we've come.. 

        We will recover, 
        The worst is over, now. 
        All those fires we've been walking through, 
        And still we survive, somehow. 
        We will recover, 
        The worst is behind, 
        And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover. 
        Everybody's gotta, a reason to cry, 
        And everybody fights but, not everyone survives 
        And everybody's searching, not everybody finds 
        And I'm still in recovery, and I'll make it alive? 

        We will recover, 
        The worst is over, now. 
        All those fires we've been walking through 
        And still we survive, somehow. 

        We will recover 
        The worst is behind, and it hurts but in time, 
        I know that we will recover, 
        The worst is over, now. 
        And all those fires we've been walking through, 
        And still we survive, somehow. 
        We will recover, 
        The worst is behind 
        And it hurts, but in time, I know that we will recover

      • Hey you
        What do you hold in your hand
        I hope you understand
        What I was
        Who I am
        And always been
        What do you know about me
        You see
        All superficial things
        All the colors
        All the flavors
        But you forget why you're here
        I wanna make this clear
        That you exist
        Because of what I resist
        And it's all
        About me
        It's all about me
        It'll always be me
        And it'll always be me

        Hey you
        Can you hear me
        Through static and noise
        In your head
        Hopefully

      • Scars on scars
        Restless blades
        Beating on our world in the end of days
        Scars on scars
        Crippling praise
        Reflecting suicide for a new day

        Scars on scars [3x]
        Yeah...
        Yeah...

        Scars on scars [3x]

        Do you know what I'm fucking feeling?
        Do you know what I'm fucking feeling?
        Do you know what I'm fucking feeling?
        Do you fucking feel this?

        Scars on scars
        Imagery born in stains
        Plagued inside a heart in the end of days
        Scars on scars
        These pills are killing me
        No return from Hell
        In the darkest days

        Scars on scars [3x]
        Yeah...
        Yeah...

        Scars on scars [3x]

      • Looking for something the lord would make,
        Meters of sleep--buried under the neck
        Bereave animal dreams, instinct to keep you
        Instance to bleed you
        Instinct
        Saturday folds, by the time I put my wishing words away
        The sound of an old door laughing
        Creaks to signal
        Your wishing words were saved

        The heart grows old
        The heart grows old with you
        No one in this world could hope to take your place
        The heart grows old
        The heart grows old and rues
        The end of our days
        The heart grows old with you

        And it breaks my mind in two
        Because I know--and you know
        That it was never meant to be
        Baby I was just too young
        To appreciate all of your seams
        Now I'm cutting myself
        Watching you cutting yourself
        Bleeding myself

        The heart grows old
        The heard grows old and rues
        The end of our days, the heart grows old with you
        The heart grows old
        The heart grows old and croons
        Into the blue--the heart grows old with you

        Save me, save me from loving you always
        Save me, save me from loving you always
        Save me, save me from loving you always
        Save me, save me from loving you always

      • I know I am because I said am
        I know I am because I said am
        I know I am because I said am
        My body is home
        My body is home
        I know I am because I said am
        I know I am because I said am
        I know I am because I said am

        So try this
        Take your hands over your bumpy lovebody naked
        And remember the first time you touched someone
        With the sole purpose of learning all of them
        Touched them because the light was pretty on them
        And the dust in the sunlight danced the way your heart did
        Touch yourself with a purpose
        Your body is the most beautiful royal
        Fathers and uncles are not claiming your knife anymore
        Are not your razor, no
        Put the sharpness back
        Lay your hands flat and feel the surface of scarred skin

        I once touched a tree with charred limbs
        The stump was still breathing
        But the tops were just ashy remains
        I wonder what it's like to come back from that
        Sometimes I feel a forest fire erupting from my wrists
        And the smoke signals sent out are the most beautiful things
        I've ever seen
        Love your body the way your mother loved your baby feet
        And brother, arm wrapping shoulders, and remember
        This is important
        You are worth more than who you fuck
        You are worth more than a waistline
        You are worth more than any naked body could proclaim
        In the shadows, more than a man's whim
        Or your father's mistake
        You are no less valuable as a size 16, than a size 4
        You are no less valuable as a 32a than a 36c
        Your sexiness is defined by concentric circles within your wood
        Wisdom
        You are a goddamn tree stump with leaves sprouting out
        Reborn

      • Know girls who are trying to fit into the social norm
        Like squeezing into last year's prom dress
        I know girls who are low rise, mac eyeshadow, and binge drinking
        I know girls that wonder if they're disaster and sexy enough to fit in
        I know girls who are fleeing bombs from the mosques of their skin
        Playing russian roulette with death; it's never easy to accept
        That our bodies are fallible and flawed
        But when do we draw the line?
        When the knife hits the skin?

        Isn't it the same thing as purging
        Because we're so obsessed with death
        Some women just have more guts than others
        The funny thing is women like us don't shoot
        We swallow pills, still wanting to be beautiful at the morgue
        Still proceeding to put on make-up
        Still hoping that the mortician finds us fuckable and attractive
        We might as well be buried with our shoes
        And handbags and scarves, girls
        We flirt with death everytime we etch a new tally mark
        Into our skin
        I know how to split my wrists like a battlefield too

        But the time has come for us to
        Reclaim our bodies
        Our bodies deserve more than to be war-torn and collateral
        Offering this fuckdom as a pathetic means to say
        "I only know how to exist when I'm wanted"
        Girls like us are hardly ever wanted you know
        We're used up and sad and drunk and
        Perpetually waiting by the phone for someone to pick up
        And tell us that we did good
        You did good

        I know I am because I said am
        I know I am because I said am
        I know I am because I said am
        My body is home
        My body is home
        I know I am because I said am
        I know I am because I said am
        I know I am because I said am

      • Waking up your neighbors downstairs,
        I've been inside your bedroom a thousand years.
        And as you tie me to the bed for good I say
        that I want you in the most unromantic way.

        Louisiana, you're torturing me with a beautiful face.
        Ana come on, I thought we had a damn good thing.
        A penny in the couch and a diamond ring.

        So baby stay away from my friends,
        'cause I need them to carry me.
        When it's over I'll count back from ten,
        and you can listen to glass hearts shattering.

        I don't know how you got into me,
        down my throat and made a home in my veins.
        They used to be the rivers that would take us away,
        but now you only call me every Christmas and my birthday.
        I still can't believe how you look next to me,
        just like a strip club bedroom scene.

        Baby stay away from my friends,
        'cause I need them to carry me.
        When it's over I'll count back from ten,
        and you can listen to something that you've never heard before.

        But you don't know what it's like
        to wake up in the middle of the night,
        scaring the thought of kissing razors.

        This blood evacuation is telling me to cave in.
        Stay away.
        Oh no.
        Just stay away from my friends.

      • These scars aren’t pretty
        But they’re a part of me
        And will not ever fade away
        These marks tell a story
        Of me down in the valley
        And how You reached in with Your grace
        And healed me

        They remind me of Your faithfulness
        And all You brought me through
        They teach me that my brokenness
        Is something You can use
        They show me where I’ve been and
        That I’m not there any more
        That’s what scars, that’s what scars are for
        what scars are for

        Erase, rewind
        Wish I could every time
        The hurt, the pain cuts so deep
        But when I’m weak You’re strong
        And in Your power I can carry on
        And my scars say that You won’t ever leave

        They remind me of Your faithfulness
        And all You brought me through
        They teach me that my brokenness
        Is something You can use
        They show me where I’ve been and
        That I’m not there any more
        That’s what scars, that’s what scars are for

        I see it on the cross
        The nails You took for me
        Scars can change the world
        Scars can set me free

        They remind me of Your faithfulness
        And all You brought me through
        They teach me that my brokenness
        Is something You can use
        They show me where I’ve been and
        That I’m not there any more
        That’s what scars, that’s what scars are for
        They show me that’s what scars are for
        What scars are for
        What scars are for

      • Just an average girl,
        She always wore a smile
        She was cheerful and happy for a short while.

        Now she's older, things are getting colder
        Life's not what she thought,
        she wished someone had told her.

        She told you she was down
        And you let it slip by
        So from then on she kept it on the inside

        She told herself she was alright
        But she was telling white lies
        Can't you tell, look at her dull eyes

        Tried to stop herself from crying almost every night
        But she knew there was no chance of feeling alright

        Summer came by, all she wore was long sleeves
        'Cause those cuts on her wrist were bleeding through you see

        She knew she was depressed, didn't want to admit it
        Didn't think she fit in, everyone seemed to miss it

        She carried on like a soldier with a battle wound,
        Bleeding out from every cut her body consumed

        She had no friends at school, all alone she sat
        And if someone were to notice she would blame the cat

        But those cuts on her wrist they were no mistake,
        But no one cared enough to save her from this self hate

        Things were going down never really up,
        And here she is now stuck in this stupid rut

        She knew exactly what she had to do next,
        Just stand on the chair and tie the rope around her neck

        She wrote a letter with her hands shaking wild,
        "Look at me now are you proud of your precious child?"

        But she knew that her parents weren't the ones to blame,
        It was the world that should bow down it's head in shame

        She stood up on the chair and looked out at the moon,
        Just don't think it'll all be over soon

        The chair fell down as she took her final breath,
        It's all over all gone, now she's greeting death

        Her mum walks in, she falls down to the floor,
        And now nothing can take back what she just saw

        The little girl that she raised is just hanging there,
        Her body's pale and her face is violently bare,
        She sees the note and unfolds it with care,
        All she does is stare, "How can this be fair?"

        She starts reading as the tears roll down her face,

        "I'm sorry Mum, but this world is just not my place,
        I've tried for so long to fix this and fit in,
        I've come to realise this world's full of sin,
        There's nothing for me here, I'm just a waste of space,
        I've got no reason to stay here with this awful race,
        It's a disgrace, I was misplaced,
        Born in the wrong time and in the wrong place,
        It's ok though, 'cause you'll see me soon,
        You'll know when your time has come, just look at the moon,
        As it shines bright, throughout the night,
        And remember everyone's facing their own fights,
        But i can't deal with this pain, I'm not a fighter,
        You'll make it through the night, just hug your pillow tighter
        So let the world know that I died in vain,
        Because the world around me is the one to blame,
        And I know in a year you'll forget I'm gone,
        'Cause I'm not really something to be dwelled on,
        That's what they used to tell me, all those kids at school,
        So I'm going by the law majority rules,
        My presence on this earth is not needed any longer,
        And if anything I hope this makes you stronger,
        You're the best friend that I ever had,
        Such a shame I had to make you so very sad,
        Just remember that you meant everything to me,
        And to my heart, you're the only one that held the key,
        Now it's time to go I'm running out of space to write,
        And yes I lost my fight, but please just hold on tight
        I'm watching over you from the clouds above,
        And sending down the purest and whitest dove,
        To watch over you and be my helpful eye,
        So this is it world...

        Goodbye!"

      • Those scars on your wrists are the mark of the world
        An ocean that's left you so torn
        But remember the heart you brought into this world
        The same one as when you were born

        How confused you must be
        Finding love in the blood that you bleed
        But the truth is that I see
        Why you say that 'it's hard to be me'
        And we all make mistakes
        Its not you, but this world you should hate
        You're as beautiful as you were yesterday

        And those tears in your eyes are the product of lies
        You've been lead to believe that they're true
        But remember the light you brought into this world
        I promise it will get you through

        How confused you must be
        Finding love in the blood that you bleed
        But the truth is that I see
        Why you say that 'it's hard to be me'
        And we all make mistakes
        Its not you, but this world you should hate
        You're as beautiful as you were yesterday

      • There's a girl next door
        she's got holes in both sides of her heart.
        She's been crying while lying in the dark
        But I think I can save her.
        Oh, I think I can save her.

        There's a girl next door
        She's got cuts up both sides of her arms
        she likes the pain cause the pain don't break her heart

        but I think I can save her
        oh I think I can save her.

        If I leave, will you follow
        me; out of the hallows,
        if our empty hearts collide, 
        we can fill them up tonight.
        Oh, hollow hearts unite.

        There's a girl next door
        her daddy lost his job and now he drinks too much.
        her momma left a year ago when daddy got too tough
        but I think I can save her
        oh I think I can save her.

        If I leave, will you follow me; 
        out of the hallows
        If our empty hearts collide, 
        we can fill them up tonight.
        Oh, hollow hearts unite.

      • I heard that you've been
        Self-medicating in the quiet of your room,
        Your sweet, suburban tomb.
        And if you need a friend,
        I'll help you stitch up your wounds.

        I heard that you've been
        Having some trouble finding your place in the world.
        I know how much that hurts,
        But if you need a friend
        Then please just say the word...

        You've come this far,
        You're all cleaned up,
        You've made a mess again,
        There's no more trying,
        Time to sort yourself out...

        Hold on tight,
        This ride is a wild one,
        Make no mistake,
        The day will come when you can't cover up what you've done,
        Now don't lose your fight, kid,
        It only takes a little push to pull on through,
        With so much left to do;
        You'll be missing out, and we'll be missing you.

        With so much left to do;
        You'll be missing out, and we'll be missing you.

        Grit your teeth, pull your hair,
        Paint the walls black and scream, "Fuck the world
        'Cause it's my life, I'm gonna take it back,"
        And never for a second blame yourself.

        Hold on tight,
        This ride is a wild one,
        Make no mistake,
        The day will come when you can't cover up what you've done,
        (no, you can't cover up)
        (one, two, three, four!)

        Hold on tight,
        This ride is a wild one (this ride is a wild one),
        Make no mistake,
        The day will come when you can't cover up what you've done,
        Now don't lose your fight, kid (don't lose your fight, kid),
        It only takes a little push to pull on through (push to pull on through),
        With so much left to do;
        You'll be missing out, and we'll be missing you

      • Talking to myself
        Causing great concern for my health
        Where is your head Kathryn
        Where is your head
        I'm trying to escape
        This constant pull towards ache
        Why do you fight Kathryn
        Why do you fight
        Surely hope will arrive soon
        And cure these self induced wounds
        Why hurt yourself Kathryn
        Why hurt yourself
        Why hurt yourself

        Can your heart conceal
        What the mind of love reveals
        I'm talking to myself agin
        It's causing great concern for my health
        Where is your head Kathryn
        Where is your head
        Where is your head Kathryn
        Where is your head
        Can your heart conceal
        What the mind of love reveals
        Can your heart conceal
        What the mind of love reveals
        (Can your heart conceal)
        What the mind of love reveals

      • The only thing that keeps me from driving this car
        Half-light, jack knife into the canyon at night
        Signs and wonders: Perseus aligned with the skull
        Slain Medusa, Pegasus alight from us all

        Do I care if I survive this? Bury the dead where they’re found
        In a veil of great surprises: I wonder did you love me at all?

        The only thing that keeps me from cutting my arm
        Cross hatch, warm bath, Holiday Inn after dark
        Signs and wonders: water stain writing the wall
        Daniel’s message, blood of the moon on us all

        Do I care if I despise this? Nothing else matters, I know
        In a veil of great disguises: How do I live with your ghost?

        Should I tear my eyes out now?
        Everything I see returns to you somehow
        Should I tear my heart out now?
        Everything I feel returns to you somehow
        I want to save you from your sorrow

        The only reason why I continue at all
        Faith in reason, I wasted my life playing dumb
        Signs and wonders: sea lion caves in the dark
        Blind faith, God’s grace, nothing else left to impart

        Do I care if I survive this? Bury the dead where they’re found
        In a veil of great surprises, hold to my head till I drown
        Should I tear my eyes out now, before I see too much?
        Should I tear my arms out now? I want to feel your touch

        Should I tear my eyes out now?
        Everything I see returns to you somehow
        Should I tear my heart out now?
        Everything I feel returns to you somehow
