When a blade rests on your wrist They say there's more you can do When a knot is tied around your neck They say the lies were never true When you're ready to take a leap They say you're stronger than this And when you're long gone They say life should be longer than this So why is it that people only feel sorry When you're floating in the clouds? Or that they only pick on those Who stand out in the crowds? Why don't these victims Search for saving from those who care? Well I can tell you from experience It's not that easy when you're there. The jocks, the jerks Those people that can hurt The crowds, the cliques They eat at you like ticks So how does one survive When you're drowned in blue? There's no one you can turn to It's all up to you. You're abandoned, alone You've been kicked off your throne No God, no guardian Will even throw you a bone So how do you stop yourself From parting your soul from your shoes? I'll tell you in all honesty It's all up to you. You have a barrel to your brain A sharp edge to your vein But don't you all know You just do it out of pain And what if instead You just let it subside Wait out the agony Just to feel a new pride This is what I did And yes, it was tough But when all was done I was stronger sure enough But if I had given in that night And taken my life, which was so bleak The bullies would've been right all along I would've been helpless and weak So all I have to say Is turn your head for a few You may not find help in others Because its all up to you Find it within yourself Don't take the easy way out Stick through and prove them wrong Show them what you're about Because it's all up to you. Everything you know. It's you. And don't let that go.
