  • I keep a fresh razor blade in the sole of my shoe
    It helps when I get stuck thinking of you.
    Hands and knees
    Head on the floor.
    Doubled up.
    So sore.

    Everything is falling apart.
    I stopped living when I drained my heart
    Cracked ribs.
    Split lips.
    I know where you live.

    Everything is turning black
    They ate my bones so you can't go back
    Clawed feet.
    Black beaks.
    I know where you live.

    Drink the poison.
    Trace the veins
    Your saviors will not be saved.
    You got the devils mouth and it's full of lies.
    Black eyes. Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER FRANK CARTER, LAURENT BENJAMIN BARNARD, LEE PHILLIP BARRATT, STEPHEN WILLIAM RICHARD CARTER, STUART LESLIE GILI-ROSS
