LorryTruckLorryTruck Definition of a mental mess and a certified lost cause :)EnglandPosts: 1,939 Extreme Poster
I write songs a lot, but I wanted to make a thread where I can post them, because I usually post them on the poem thread, but they're not really poems, so I want to post them here as songs.
I know you've heard this before, but you've got to be strong now...

    TW - it's about self-harm thoughts

    Stained red

    Don't you dare twist me into doing that again
    You know that I'm reliant on you like a friend
    You are silver but you stain me red
    I don't like the thoughts you put in my head

    I'm tired of arguing with you all of the time
    I'm tired of fighting the thoughts you put in my mind
    Stop telling me it's just going to be one line
    You won't let my past leave me behind.

    STILL I LET YOU STAIN ME RED
    YOU NEVER LET ME FORGET
    THEN YOU LEAVE ME TO MOP UP THE MESS
    YOU TELL ME I'M FUCKED AND HAVE NOTHING LEFT
    SINCE YOU CAME I HAVEN'T PROPERLY SLEPT
    I'VE BEEN TRYING TO FIND SOME KIND OF STREGNTH
    SO YOU CAN'T CONTROL ME, TAKE YOUR LAST BREATH
    TO GET YOU OUT MY HEAD, TO CHOKE YOU TO DEATH

    (stained red
    addicted to you
    silenced ,
    so badly used)

    Don't tell me no one loves me
    Don't make me blame myself like always
    Don't tell me I deserve this
    Because even if I do it I still feel worthless.

    I'm tired of arguing with you all of the time
    I'm tired of fighting the thoughts you put in my mind
    Sometimes I want to tell people but you force me to hide
    You force me to tell them I am fine (lies, lies)

    STILL I LET YOU STAIN ME RED
    YOU NEVER LET ME FORGET
    THEN YOU LEAVE ME TO MOP UP THE MESS
    YOU TELL ME I'M FUCKED AND HAVE NOTHING LEFT
    SINCE YOU CAME I HAVEN'T PROPERLY SLEPT
    I'VE BEEN TRYING TO FIND SOME KIND OF STREGNTH
    SO YOU CAN'T CONTROL ME, TAKE YOUR LAST BREATH
    TO GET YOU OUT MY HEAD, TO CHOKE YOU TO DEATH

    (stained red
    addicted to you
    silenced ,
    so badly used)

    You are silver but you stain me red
    Hanging onto you like you're my only friend

    SO YOU CAN STAIN ME RED
    BUT I WILL MAKE YOU BLEED TO DEATH

    You are silver but you stain me red
    You will never let me forget.

    (stained red
    addicted to you
    silenced ,
    so badly used)
    I know you've heard this before, but you've got to be strong now...

    Darling

    "Hello darling"
    "How you doin'?"
    I'm OK, please excuse me
    I'm insane, it's confusing
    Trapped in a chain
    Always losing

    Waking up
    to confusion
    Taking up
    this delusion
    Feeling stuck
    OK let's do this
    Faking NOT
    OK excuse me.

    Time to focus
    You don't know this
    Always hopeless
    "Thought you had this?"
    Take no notice
    They say I chose this
    Trying to be honest
    Almost forgot this

    HEY OK
    I kind of regret making you wait
    It's clear you didn't want to stay
    I'm sorry I made you feel out of place
    HEY OK
    This is the kind of life I had made
    It's like I was born with a hand on a spade
    I swear my grave was wearing these chains

    It's great that I place
    that I could go when receiving my hate
    It's great that I had a plate
    that I could fill when I'd anxiously wait.

    HEY OK
    OK "A FAKE"
    "A PHASE"
    NOT FAKE
    AWAKE
    REPLAY
    INSANE
    OK OK
    SHUT UP
    BE QUIET
    HEY
    WAIT!

    It's time to prove I weren't pretending
    It's time to stop all of this yelling
    It's a long way I've been trailing
    OK whatever, I've probably been failing.
    "Yeah, it's not like you've been sailing"
    I've just been trying to break outta jail, "ok then"
    It's not my fault it's lies I've been chasing
    I'm just one of a million cases

    Why would I fake this?
    I told you I hate this.
    Tryna delay this
    I don't want to take this

    I've been replaying
    Every word you've been saying
    I just want to be OK
    That's all I've got left to say

    "Bye bye darling"
    "I know you got this"
    I knew you didn't care
    Who cares? It's hopeless.
    I know you've heard this before, but you've got to be strong now...

    Do you know what it's like?
    To have a voice not worth hearing
    Have you ever been so mad?
    You've yelled at the ceiling
    Have you ever cried so much?
    You've stopped feeling
    Have you ever been to the edge?
    A mind away from leaving

    Have you ever had no worth?
    That you're a living curse
    Have you ever hurt?
    And thought it was deserved.
    Have you ever felt like dirt?
    A waste to the universe.
    Have you ever felt worse?
    When the lesson weren't learnt.

    I have died a million times
    And you want to know what they say?

    "Attention seeking"
    "Never feeling"
    "Always needy"
    "Would never leave me" ha ha

    How would you know?
    You are all so cold.
    This is not a show.

    I have something to say before I go away
    I just want to show you the load I carry everyday.
    I just want to tell you I'm not OK.
    But I'm scared you'll tell me it's a phase, that the pain will fade...

    I'm tired of being the one broken all the time.
    I hate that I'm weak and that I would cry.
    These monsters take advantage of my life on the line
    Every time they hurt me it still catches me by surprise.

    THE DARK IS NOW MY ONLY HOME
    THE ONLY PLACE WHERE I BELONG
    THESE DEMONS HAVE SHOWN ME WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BROKE
    NOW THAT'S ALL I KNOW. NOW IT'S ALL I KNOW.

    How could you all be so cold?
    How could you leave me on my own?
    Why do you watch my life unfold?
    Ready to leave me on my own.

    I have something to say before I go away
    I just want to show you the load I carry everyday.
    I just want to tell you I'm not OK.
    But I'm scared you'll tell me it's a phase, that the pain will fade...

    (note: it only some lyrics some random stuff)
    I know you've heard this before, but you've got to be strong now...

    No self-control
    No self-control
    No way out
    No way out
    No fucking soul
    Just a black hole
    This is not for show
    This is not for show

    Worn down to hopelessness
    Wonder how it got to this
    Some people think "what joke this is"
    "she's fake like she always is"
    Your accusations make me kind of pissed
    This shit I deal with I cannot list
    I constantly think I won't be missed
    Sometimes I don't even want to exist

    No self-respect
    Always on the edge
    There's too much time left
    For me in my head
    I know you've heard this before, but you've got to be strong now...

    Timeless

    Timeless is this hell
    This is mine to tell
    Priceless is to dwell
    This is mine to tell

    Fighting to escape once again
    Nothing has changed since back then (am I scared? Am I scared?)
    This time I'm gonna pick up the pen
    When is this going to be over? When? (Afraid, am I afraid?)

    No one told me about the war I was going to fight in
    No one told me life could be so frightening
    No one told me I was gonna be destroyed within
    No one told me nothing can brighten it.

    TIMELESS IS MY HELL
    (DONT YOU DARE LOOK AT ME WITH PITY ON YOUR FACE)
    MENTALLY UNWELL
    (DONT TELL ME I CANT BE REPLACED)
    PRICELESS IS TO DWELL
    (ADMIT THAT IMMA DISGRACE)
    THIS IS MINE TO TELL
    (TRAUMA OWNS MY FATE)

    All I know is I'm scarred for life
    My scars are in my mind
    when I'm picking up the knife
    My secrets aren't to find

    No one told me about the war I was going to fight in
    No one told me life could be so frightening
    No one told me I was gonna be destroyed within
    No one told me nothing can brighten it.

    TIMELESS IS MY HELL
    (DONT YOU DARE LOOK AT ME WITH PITY ON YOUR FACE)
    MENTALLY UNWELL
    (DONT TELL ME I CANT BE REPLACED)
    PRICELESS IS TO DWELL
    (ADMIT THAT IMMA DISGRACE)
    THIS IS MINE TO TELL
    (TRAUMA OWNS MY FATE)

    THIS IS MINE TO TELL
    THIS IS MY STORY

    Timeless is this hell
    This is mine to tell
    Priceless is to dwell
    This is mine to tell
    I know you've heard this before, but you've got to be strong now...

    Draining

    Do you remember how I was when I couldn't think clearly?
    Do you remember how I was when I was beggin' these demons to spare me?
    Do you remember the agony in my voice when I told you I wanted to be free?
    But we both know no matter what that these demons will never leave...

    (Lately life has been so draining
    The words "I'm fine" don't stop me fading)

    I didn't even know
    That it was possible to get that low
    Everything turned so slow
    Submerged to drown below
    I swear it always snows
    And the winters always follow
    And there's no place left to go
    When my head's about to blow...

    Do you remember how I was when I'd hurt so much I was numb?
    Do you remember how I was when I fell apart and became undone?
    Do you remember the weight of my sadness when I couldn't talk to anyone?
    Because I couldn't help but think I was letting down everyone...

    (Lately life has been so draining
    The words "I'm fine" don't stop me fading)

    I didn't even know
    That it was possible to get that low
    Everything turned so slow
    Submerged to drown below
    I swear it always snows
    And the winters always follow
    And there's no place left to go
    When my head's about to blow...

    (Lately life has been so draining
    The words "I'm fine" don't stop me fading)

    Will I ever heal?
    Can't seem to find a way out
    It hurts too much to feel
    My silence is my shout...

    I didn't even know
    That it was possible to get that low
    Everything turned so slow
    Submerged to drown below
    I swear it always snows
    And the winters always follow
    And there's no place left to go
    When my head's about to blow...

    (Lately life has been so draining
    The words "I'm fine" don't stop me fading)

    (Lately life has been so draining
    The words "I'm fine" don't stop me fading)
    I know you've heard this before, but you've got to be strong now...
