Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding

This is my last resort

Cut my life into pieces
I've reached my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
Do you even care if I die bleeding
Would it be wrong
Would it be right
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation out of sight
And I'm contemplating suicide

'Cause I'm losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine

I never realized I was spread too thin
Till it was too late
And I was empty within
Hungry
Feeding on chaos
And living in sin
Downward spiral where do I begin
It all started when I lost my mother
No love for myself
And no love for another
Searching to find a love up on a higher level
Finding nothing but questions and devils

'Cause I'm losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me in fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Nothing's alright
Nothing is fine
I'm running and I'm crying
I'm crying
I'm crying
I'm crying
I'm crying

I can't go on li-ving this way

Cut my life into pieces
This is my last resort
Suffocation
No breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arm bleeding
Would it be wrong
Would it be right
If I took my life tonight
Chances are that I might
Mutilation out of sight
And I'm contemplating suicide

'Cause I'm losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Losing my sight
Losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Nothing's alright
Nothing is fine
I'm running and I'm crying

I can't go on living this way
Can't go on
Living this way
Nothing's alright

    i think tht this song is bout all th depressed ppl(mostly teens,or emos) tht just feel like they r unwanted.they cut to there arms to get rid of th pain.and by doing this they r seen as suicidal.but he is tellin th fans tht there r ppl tht do this and tht there r ppl tht feel like they want to just let them selfs bleed to death.

    This song is definitely among my all time favorites. Like Izu said, it is about more than suicide. He talks a lot about self-mutilation, like cutting and such, and how it's starting to feel like it's not enough. It's probably not the best song in means of getting people to stop self-destructive behavior [it idealizes suicide, etc], but when you feel so horrible, you love this song anyways, possibly because it tells you that it's okay to feel shitty.

    Personally I think this song is about a lot more than suicide. It's kinda about self harm and a horrible life too.

    I really love this song and I can relate to it on so many levels.

    I love Papa Roach for this.

    Great song, yeah it is sad that some people may feel exactly what he's singing about. Sometimes life can get like this,where you're down to your last resort and all you can think about is yourself how you want to end your own misery.
