I can't take it
Give me the cold steel
Skin tingles at the thought
Let the blade kiss my flesh
The sting soothes the pain
Blood rises
Emotions rise and flow over the surface
White teeth smile at the red
Wipe it away
Wash it down the drain
No one will know
The scar?
"I fell"

I can't take it
Give me the drink that burns
Tongue tingles at the thought
Let the bottle kiss my lips
The burn soothes the pain
Unfocused eyes
Unfocused emotions fade in and out
Crazed smile at the glass
Drink it away
Wash it down
No one will know
I'm stumbling?
"I'm tired"

I can't take it
Give me the smoke that burns
Lungs tingle at the thought
Let the tobacco kiss my lips
The nicotine soothes the pain
Smoke drifts away
Emotions rise and turn to ash
White teeth smile past the grey
Blow it away
Inhale it down
No one will know
I smell?
"I was with a friend"

I can't take it
Give me the needle that stings
Vein tingles at the thought
Let the amber kiss my blood
The fire soothes the pain
Blood flows away
Emotions fade to nothing
Wild smile at the sky
Wish it away
Inject it down
No one will know
The red marks?
"I fell.."
