Gonna draw a pretty picture

A red picture with a twist

I'll draw it with a razor blade

I'll draw it on my wrist


Slash the lines of symmetry

And stripes of odds and ends

Diagonals and crossovers

With many turns and bends


A masterpiece of crimson tears

My bloody wrist shall bear

I'll cover it with long-sleeved shirts

And nobody will care


Gonna draw a pretty picture

And laugh in agony

Gonna draw it on the other arm

And no one will miss me
