You sit
In a group at lunch
Comparing the scars
And the size of your cuts
Holly did it the toilets
Elaine hates her life
Anna did it with a razor blade
Alicia did it with a knife
You talk sincerely
Like you deserve recognition
But for me all you talk of
Is painful repetition

Shut up
About your stupid cuts
You only do it for attention
The pain that I feel
Is kept in careful retention
I'm not going to feel sorry for you
Cuz my life hurts too
So much that I want to die
And I cut myself
But you didn't notice that
You're too busy
Feeling sorry for yourself

Don't destroy yourselves if you don't mean every slice, burn and scar
Stop pretending to hate who you are
If you're depressed you'll follow this rule
You'll cut cuz it hurts
Not cuz it's cool

You stand
Around in the toilets
While you're wagging class
Talking about how you're going to die
Claire is contemplating painkillers
Sarah is thinks hanging herself is best
Maria reckons slitting her wrists is how she'll go
Emily wants to put a knife in her chest
You say you've planned it
But I know you'll never go through it
You are faithless, meaningless souls
And you're afraid to do it

Shut up
About your stupid cuts
You only do it for attention
The pain that I feel
Is kept in careful retention
I'm not going to feel sorry for you
Cuz my life hurts too
So much that I want to die
And I cut myself
But you didn't notice that
You're too busy
Feeling sorry for yourself

Don't destroy yourselves if you don't mean every slice, burn and scar
Stop pretending to hate who you are
If you're depressed you'll follow this rule
You'll cut cuz it hurts
Not cuz it's cool

When I die
At the hands of my blade
You'll stand in a group
And talk in hushed whispers
You won't believe it at first
You'll say it all seems unreal
You won't understand why
And you won't know how to feel

I'll watch you all
As you discuss suicide death and me
And read the note
I left for you to see

I'll write to you before I die
To tell you:

Shut up
About your stupid cuts
You're only talk about suicide
The pain that I felt
Was always hidden inside
I'm not going to feel sorry for you
Cuz my life, it hurt too
So much I ended it
I killed myself
You didn't notice
You were too busy
Feeling sorry for yourself

Don't destroy yourselves if you don't mean every slice, burn and scar
Stop pretending to hate who you are
If you're depressed you'll follow this rule
You'll cut cuz it hurts
Not cuz it's cool
You're so busy feeling sorry for yourself
Cuz you're too popular at school
Cut cuz it hurts
Not cuz it's cool
CUT CUZ IT HURTS
NOT CUZ IT'S COOL!
