Do you even know?

Why does everyone think they understand
Think they can help, I’m already damned
Watch as they try to tell me they know
While they watch my life turn into snow

Cutting isn’t good they’ll say
That it won’t take my pain away
Crying in a corner is bad
But what else can I do when I am sad

They’ve been in my shoes
But what do they have to prove
I am too far gone
I said I’d kill myself and they just yawned

They said nothing
They really thought I was bluffing
I showed them with a rope and a chair
How much they really cared

Swinging as they all fade away
Knowing that someday they would pay
Fake tears pour out their eyes
As I have come to my demise

They said they helped
That they didn’t even know how I felt
Now they're so low
Cause they didn’t even know
