Dark Secrets

I bet no one knew

I did this to myself

that shows you can never tell 

who really needs your help

so take a look around you

try to spot and see

someone who has cut themselves

someone just like me

 

so this is a sad story

about my life

and I used to cut myself

but never with a knife

I used different tools

it became almost an art

because each one meant something

they put ease to my heart

now you might think I'm crazy 

or downright insane

but this is what saved me

it erased the pain

now I'm not trying to support it 

it was a stupid decision

but I felt so much better

with every incision

it set aside the thought 

of some tragic event

like the loss of a loved one

before god they were sent 

I even did this crap

for such little things

and I did it so often 

it became routine

I have a high tolerance 

grew higher anytime I was sad

I cut myself deep

never thought it was too bad

but they always left nasty scars

so take my advice

before you pick up that blade

think about it twice

 

I bet no one knew

I did this to myself

that shows you can never tell 

who really needs your help

so take a look around you

try to spot and see

someone who has cut themselves

someone just like me

 

a message to the people 

who take part in self-harm

stop what you're doing

keep that blade off your arm

think about the consequences 

of all those ugly cuts

even thinking about it now

makes me sick to my guts

whether desperate for attention 

or for serious reasons

don't hurt yourself for feelings

that just change with the seasons

bad things piling up

I know it's starting to get heavy

but keep those bad thoughts out

because those can be deadly 

think about all the good 

and just empty your mind

kick those bad thoughts out 

and leave them behind

now look at what's left

al those memories that stay

keep those good ones coming

drive the bad ones away

now think about your future 

and the clothes you have to wear

to prevent someone from asking

“what happened to you there”

because you'll be regretting the past

as you silently reminisce

and you ask yourself

why'd I ever do this

 

I bet no one knew

I did this to myself

that shows you can never tell 

who really needs your help

so take a look around you

try to spot and see

someone who has cut themselves

someone just like me
