Why so often do we find
The darkness consuming us
Why do we believe death cures all
When in reality, Death is just another step
There are no answers so I am told
When life is taken by one's own hand
Only fear and pain
Sometimes years to crawl from the blackness
Only to relive it again

It tears me apart to see those choose that path
Blind to the strength they hold inside
Yet, I know those feelings all too well
Everyday I fight it
Anxiety, depression
But it will not overtake me
Every time I pick myself up off my knees
Is one more battle won

I know I cannot save the world
Hell, I have a hard enough time saving myself
But just for a moment for them to see
That within them shines a light so brilliant
They can make it, I know they can

And what of those who have lost the fight
What do you think they would say
Go back to the top and begin again
Even if you find yourself reaching out
From planes of the unknown
To whom would you turn
Family, friends, but you're already gone
There is no return from the abyss
No open arms waiting
Not because they don't care
Maybe it is that they care too much
Or just cannot bring themselves to believe

I tried once, twice more to be frank
Branded a freak or a liar
If they only knew the truth
I tried to bring him home for a moment
All I found was that no one was willing to listen
Instead there were amateur investigations
Stalking from the trees, binoculars gleaming in the sun
Asking riddiculus questions
About the movie Clockwork Orange
My favorite scenes, classical pieces played
I couldn't tell if he was a rapist or just that stupid
Who talks about that movie to strangers
Very few indeed

So again I tried, different time different place
Knowing better, I put it out there
And again I found a dead end
He didn't listen as I was so sure he would
But she did
A wannabe witch, falsely preaching Shamanic ways
Vowing her revenge
For every one person she proclaims to help
She takes two in return
You just gotta laugh
Preaching her truths, psssht
She knows no truth
No respect for anyone but herself
NEVER should I have gone there
For a dead addict why should she care

Once more I am left to clean up the mess
I am tired

So remember, those of you who choose it
Death by your hand
It is final but at the same time continual
A never ending spiral
With no one to look back to
If you're truly lucky and realize your mistakes
You'll find an angel to help and heal you
But the past won't matter
It has moved on
And its too f***ing late
