Put The Blade Away



Blade, put it away
You ain’t got time to play with it today
Knife, put it away
Is life really that bad to stab yourself today?
Pills, throw them away
Is it worth the risk not living another day?


Life is tough
We’ve had enough
Scaring our wrists
We know it’s wrong but we don’t give a stuff

I am cold, I am weak
Why I am like this I cannot speak
I am a lie, I’m ready to die, for all I can do is have a cry

Blade, put it away
You ain’t got time to play with it today
Knife, put it away
Is life really that bad to stab yourself today?
Pills, throw them away
Is it worth the risk not living another day?

Where have all my loved ones gone?
My best friend is gone, what did I do wrong?
Now her boyfriend has a gun, ready to take a bulls-eye in one

Tell me why this is happening to me
I was so blinded, this I could not see

Life is a game, we never win
Should I just throw everything away in the bin?

Blade, put it away
You ain’t got time to play with it today
Knife, put it away
Is life really that bad to stab yourself today?
Pills, throw them away
Is it worth the risk not living another day?

We’ll be ok
It gets better they say
Brighter will be our future days
They know not our pain, why we want to drop out of an airplane
Trues turn into fakes
Makes us want to drown in lakes

Blade, put it away
You ain’t got time to play with it today
Knife, put it away
Is life really that bad to stab yourself today?
Pills, throw them away
Is it worth the risk not living another day?

Life is a blessing so why does it need to be so stressing?
We try impressing, but we forget about progressing
Put the darkness to the side
Why do you need to hide?
Today can be a new beginning
Let’s stop with the bloody sinning

Blade, put it away
You ain’t got time to play with it today
Knife, put it away
Is life really that bad to stab yourself today?
Pills, throw them away
Is it worth the risk not living another day?
