Knowing nothing can be better than knowing to much.

The silver blade falls
With a lust for blood

To curb your fear
And your sadness

The cut may be deep
But it goes deeper
Deeper inside my mind

Is it addiction
Or is life that full of pain

Turn away from that
Angry blade

Turn to what you do have
What makes you happy
Don’t think those sad thoughts

Or turn to me
I will hold you

Till you forget your sadness
Or your sorrow

Let the blade fall
To never be picked up again

Some friends I knew actually inspired me to write this because they had this problem.
