    • 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.

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

      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.

      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

    • “Bleeding” by Basix
      http://backtothebasix.com/Bleeding-Feat-Lola-Mendoza/[/embed]

      Lyrics:
      From the top of a world to a bottomless pit
      From the fire where my live’s well lit
      To the coldest place where souls go to rest
      N no I ain’t just gettin shit off my chest
      Flexin as I be stressin, be readily investin in a question
      Lettin off aggression in this rap session is a blessin
      Cuz honestly it’s keepin me sane, well in line
      Bit like me stayin in my own lane, in my mind
      With all these emotions I’m exposin
      Runnin deeper than oceans

      Not hopin for a magic potion, so now I’m thought provokin
      Shit talkin n invokin malicious rhymes
      Not laughin n jokin, suspicious times
      On my hands n knees cryin just hopin you’re fine
      Just thinkin bout you dyin, baby girl you’re mine

      Here for you one hundred precent of the time
      So know that’s written in cement n not lime
      That’s yesterday, today, and tomorrow too
      So I pray that today you start to get a clue

      When you bleed, I bleed, I bleed, I bleed
      When you bleed, I bleed, I bleed
      Don’t go towards the light
      Because you already shine, bright
       oh

      Now I see, the destruction of these chain of events
      Now to me, the corruption you see, pain of prevents
      I’m forever family, I saw you grow up
      Do whatever it takes, but now you blow up
      At the ones who love you most, no waste of breath
      Like guns above the coast, angel of death
      This is reality, to see a hospital bed
      With no vitality, fills me with volatile dread

      So I’m tryna’ wrap my head ‘round this but in my head
      It keeps killin till I’m dead, n I might have to behead
      This pretty boy but I wrote this instead
      If I annoy, know it’s to lesson embed
      Give yourself a few years, open your eyes
      Learn from the new tears, fuck the lies
      And you’ll do just fine, that’s a promise I can keep
      Eyes are blue not blind, in time, benefits you’ll reap
      Will surpass any of this trash, real talk
      Burn to ash all that’s in the past, then walk
      On with a new you, it’s the thing to do
      Know that my love’s true, now you’ve got a clue

      That’s all I really got to fucking say,
      I love you to death Sara…

      When you bleed, I bleed, I bleed, I bleed
      When you bleed, I bleed, I bleed
      Don’t go towards the light,
      Because you already shine, bright
       oh…

      Outro:
      When you bleed, I bleed, I bleed, I bleed

    • And it’s 4am and we will stalk again
      The princess and her bitter queen.
      On the 4th day of July
      Deep in summers eye,
      Naked like the truth should always be.

      So speak your knives.
      (Don’t follow, with your foot)
      All this pain here,
      (All comes from your dry lung)
      I won’t listen
      (Your rhetoric is fleeting)
      My lies are fixed with glue.

      Coming straight from off the water
      Sunburned face and drunken father
      Crying as she’s carving in her flesh.

      And it’s 4am and we will stalk again
      The princess and her bitter queen.
      On the 4th day of July
      Deep in summers eye,
      Naked like the truth should always be.

      This false art
      (Of palm trees and trash heaps)
      This burning bed
      (Where my ghost will now sleep)

      Watching romance from a far seat
      Bleeding from the glass on my feet
      Learning that I love the smell of flesh.

      And it’s 4am and we will stalk again
      The princess and her bitter queen.
      On the 4th day of July
      Deep in summers eye,
      Naked like the truth should always be.

      An angel on his two knees
      Arms stretched towards the red sea
      Of violence and a sultry tongue
      The scenic view of carnage
      ‘Caused by the sword in his hands
      The beauty resonates in birth.

      It’s plain to see the wind beneath the trees.
      Flowing free, the summer breeze is sweet.
      I lay in space choked by my own air.
      I love the taste of your blackened lips.

      And it’s 4am and we will stalk again
      The princess and her bitter queen.
      On the 4th day of July
      Deep in summers eye,
      Naked like the truth should always be.

    • And then I found out how hard it is to really change,
      Even hell can get comfy once you’ve settled in.
      I just wanted the numb inside me to leave.
      No matter how fucked you get,
      The sun will return and you come back down!
      The funny thing is all I ever wanted I already had
      There’s glimpses of heaven in every day
      In the friends that I have, the music I made,
      The love that I feel, I just had to start again

      The days are a death wish
      A witch hunt for an exit
      I am powerless

      The fragile, the broken
      Sit in circles and stay unspoken
      We are powerless

      Because we all walk alone on an empty staircase
      Idle in the halls and nameless faces
      I am powerless

      Everybody wants to go to heaven
      But nobody wants to die
      I can fear death no longer
      I’ve died a thousand times

      A wasteful universe
      And we don’t know our soul was
      Emptiness inside our heads
      But no one dares to dwell

      Throw me to the flames
      Watch me burn
      Set my world ablaze
      Watch me burn

      How are we on a scale of one to ten?
      You can tell me, what do you say?
      Do you wanna talk about it?
      How does that make you feel?

      Have you ever took a blade to your wrists
      Have you’ve been skipping meals
      We’re gonna try something new today
      How does that make you feel?

      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me
      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me
      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me
      In this hospital for souls

      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me
      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me
      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me
      In this hospital for souls

      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me
      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me
      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me
      In this hospital for souls

      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me burn
      Hold me close, tell me go, watch me burn
      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me burn
      In this hospital for souls

      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me burn
      Hold me close, tell me go, watch me burn
      Hold me close, don’t let go, watch me burn
      In this hospital for souls
