Our Prison

Try seeing my side
Of the story
Open your mind
To the truth

Press the metal
Up against your skin
Feel the bitter bite
And the beautiful relief

Watch the blood flow;
Fall to the ground
Drop the blade
And pretend you didn't

Wear long sleeves
Hide your wounds
Let it heal completely
Behold the scar

Be sent to a shrink
Go through the probing
Try explaining something
You don't understand

You are now with us
In our dark world
Welcome to a cutter's life
Welcome to our prison
