Red slashes stain and drip
The gashes deep, oh how they seep

Tell me, is this the game you play at the end of the day?
I dare you to stand, and throw away your razor blade
Will you take that chance on a double dare
if I promise I'll stand with you, here?

Behind those scars, your cords throb
They pulse with the life you doubt
Oh darling, your hearts giving out

Your reflection shows the girl you hate
The one who bites her lip while her life slips
I'll give you a hand just get a grip

Tell me, is this the game you play at the end of the day?
I dare you to stand, and throw away your razor blade
Will you take that chance on a double dare
if I promise I'll stand with you, here?

It's not the smear of your painted lips,
the blood trailing down your wrist,
or the tears you cry over meaningless things

It's that smile breaking
Your voice is monotone
Eyes that grew dim, and bleak
It's the lies that you believe

Tell me, is this the game you play at the end of the day?
I dare you to stand, and throw away your razor blade
Will you take that chance on a double dare
if I promise I'll stand with you, here?

I dare you to stand
And throw away that razor blade
Oh how I dare thee
Take that step, and stand
Say goodbye to lonely nights,
and silent weeps
This life you will keep
