Hanging OnIt pounds,'thud, thud, thud,"over and over;the pulse of bloodin my head, andhot drops rollfarther and farther,as if my soulis leaking outthrough my eyes,but I still won'tsay my goodbyes.
ChancesLife and death and Russian Roulettein all you do, you cast your betand when you're through, and if you lose,there are no repeats, you pay your dues.Two sides of a coin tossed up in the air:will you land on life, or end in despair?Or will you catch it before it landsand announce to the world "its not the end"?The choice is all yours, no one can help;no one can change the cards you've been dealt.You're all alone, but keep in mindthat lonely doesn't mean its time.
PerfectWith a perfect smile on her made-up faceshe exudes a sense of ladylike grace.Yet, when no one sees her alone in her roomis when she succumbs to the darkest gloom.Nobody knows it, she hides it wellunder a lock, a key, and a spell.To the world she's the girl with sparkling eyes;to the world she shows a convincing disguise.
UnexpectedSoft white wingsand cornsilk hair:ephemeral beautydestroyed right there.Innocent eyes,joyous yell;rising bubbles,a solemn bell.Friendly smile,sacrificial support,loved by all;a crime report.Happy laugh,fluttering skirt,dance and play:Amber alert.Sad and lonely,stick-in-the-mud,few close friends;a river of blood.Front of the class,eyes ahead.Plenty of friends:splatter of red.
ChoiceScream until your throat is sore,wail until you cry no more,pound your fists upon the floor,no one cares anymore.Close your heart, confront your fear:you alone are standing here.Release all that which you hold dearand when you're free, your path is clear.Will you live or will you die?No one else will bat an eye.One thing alone I cannot deny:there are no more chances after goodbye.
The EndLine of red:A velveteen roadstreaking down, across;peacefully.Joined by anotherand many more;teardrops skirting aroundforever.No life to the meanings,no meaning to life;Live by the day,die by the knife.Heartstricken sadnessand endless nightfading the hopeand killing the light.
PassingBleeding out sorrows and wishing you'd careDreading tomorrows 'cause nobody's thereThinking of hopes that will never come trueTrying to cope, my tears become fewSorrows all blending, a knot in my chestMy life soon is ending, its just for the bestNo more will you suffer, now you are freeMy burdens are buried, so just forget me.
Despairing, and AloneDespairing, and AloneDistance from everyone with flowing lyricsand block out the sights all aroundas my shoulders shake slowly, my walls stand tall,crystal droplets hit the ground.Alone, I'm alone, no one is left.Leaving home, I grab my faceand go into the day smiling, smiling, ever happy,'lest someone see this disgrace.Look away, look away,in a fright I can't breatheand this ending draws ever closer, creepingup on the end of all I see.A screech of terror, or of painechoes from my heartyet no one can hear the silenced plea insideto tear me apart.Death, end this misery in warm blood,slice open the throatso that I might find a way to pass from despairto hope.
