Red.

Red.

Red is all I see.

Red is all I see. In my dreams,

Red is all I see. In my dreams, in my thoughts,

Red is all I see. In my dreams, in my thoughts, in my eyes.

Red.

Red scars is all I remember.

Red scars is all I remember. When I sigh,

Red scars is all I remember. When I sigh, when I hurt,

Red scars is all I remember. When I sigh, when I hurt, when I cry.

Red.

Red cuts is all I want.

Red cuts is all I want. The more I sigh,

Red cuts is all I want. The more I sigh, the more I hurt,

Red cuts is all I want. The more I sigh, the more I hurt, the more I cry.

I thought I was done with this life,

No longer seduced by a knife.

I thought I had finally found a way,

For me to keep all of this at bay.

Suddenly it's as if I was back in time,

No longer in my so-thought prime.

All by myself thinking why,

Trying to keep those damn eyes dry.

Chanting during day and night,

'Please just let me be alright'.

Hoping for my thoughts to ease,

I'm so done with this mind disease.

As I try to keep my hands tight,

Not wanting to give up my fight.

Keeping red as just a colour now,

As I take my millionth 0-day vow.
