Deliberate Self-harm Ha Ha

  • The treatment, it did nothing for me
    Nothing I recall
    I'd feel just like a sociopath
    If I was feeling anything at all
    Pain won't make you beautiful
    And pain won't make you strong
    I knew that you thought both were true
    And I guess I just played along
    I guess I just played along

    How does it feel to own
    Such a trendy excuse?
    It's just like Catherine says
    "Having boundaries is abuse"

    Now that I'm the paradigm
    Of all that you resent
    If you're ever kind I just
    Assume it was an accident
    You'd probably have a habit now
    If we weren't so poor
    I know I'm to blame for your DSH
    Though not in the way I was before
    Not in the way I was before

    How does it feel to own
    Such a trendy excuse?
    It's just like Catherine says
    "Having boundaries is abuse"

    I can be combative, though
    It's not always worth the fight
    I'm so quick to correct myself
    Even when I know you know I'm right
    She said, "I don't want you dead
    I don't even need you dead to me
    But if I can't make you impotent
    I know that I'll never be free"
    I know that I'll never be free Writer/s: Kevin Barnes
