Tearstained – Failed Suicide Attempt lyrics

The choice was made
Plans were laid
To exit life
To end this strife
Ingest the pills
Depression kills
You fade away
So still you lay

[Pre-chorus 1]
Fading into darkness
Into an endless sleep
But wake to find yourself alive
You have failed at suicide

If at first you don't succeed
Try, try again (try, try again)
Failed suicide attempt

Lying there
In a hospital bed
Wonder why
You're not dead
They ask questions
But you don't care
When next you dare...

[Pre-chorus 2]
... To fade into the darkness
Into an endless sleep
Do not want to be alive
You have failed at suicide


Failed Suicide Attempt [x4]
