    What Scars Are For (Mandisa)

    Rate this media item:


    • 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

      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

      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.

      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
