Slice after slice,
the pain feels so nice,
she's going through a transaction,
and feels a satisfaction.

The pain is intense,
the feeling is right,
she cuts and cuts,
until it becomes night.

She continues to cut,
she can't stop,
she cut's too deep,
and is watching the blood drops.

She feels pleasure,
she feels pain,
she feels satisfied,
she feels ashamed.

When she cuts she awakes,
awakes from a dark sleep, feeling numb,

She cannot trust anyone,
she's misunderstood,
she is confused,
so she befriended the razor.
