Jamestown Story – If You Live By The Sword, You Die By The Sword lyrics

I open my eyes, but I still manage to dream.
This cold bathroom floor, now just feels like home to me.
I stumble to the mirror, and I naturally start to clean.
My body's scorned with marks that say "These aren't the last lines that I'll see."
So, please cut this string attached to my wrist.
Buried in my shaking palm, I hold this evil in my fist.
I relive my pain with every scar.
It's a battle field of memories that just won't go away for me.
This world has tied me down, and the knot keeps tightening.
'Cause I'm just a puppet, dangling from this breaking string.
And, maybe I'll turn this blade the other way.
And, roll up my sleeves to let the scars show my mistakes.
So, please cut this string attached to my wrist.
Buried in my shaking palm, I hold this evil in my fist.
I relive my pain with every scar.
It's a battlefield of memories that just won't go away for me.
You couldn't make the cut, so now, you'll make this cut.
You couldn't make the cut, so now, you'll make this cut.
You couldn't make the cut, so now, you'll make this cut.
You couldn't make the cut, so now, you'll make this cut.
I can't breath, I'm in need, where's my crimson savior?
No, I won't crawl back just to bleed.
Forgive me, I promise I'll stay clean.

    I know how you feel, I've cut myself for almost 3 years now and I say i'll quit but I keep going back to it over and over again. Know it isn't just you, I know at least 14 people who have cut themselves and tried to end it all. Know there is hope and there are people willing to talk to you if you ever feel the need. The most important thing is finding the strength to open up and trust someone enough to share everything you've been feeling. Check out twloha is you haven't already.

    I'm cutter. This song is exactly how I feel some times. I've passed out on the bathroom floor from blood loss more times then I can count. I'm absolutely covered in scars, and no one knows. I can't tell anyone because they'll think I'm 'emo' and just want attention. That's not true, my father disowned me three years ago, at the beginning of 6th grade. And my best friend killed himself around the same time because I couldn't help him. I know how wrong it is but, I just can't stop. It feels so good, and it lets me get through the day. It keeps me dead enough that I'm not consumed with pain and self hate. Maybe I'm the only one, maybe not. But songs like this help me so much.
