Already dead
They say I don't really want to die
They say I just want attention

They don't know I could hide in a cave
Just to avoid their attention

They say the blood flowing over my arms
Is nothing but a call for help

I say the cuts are the only medicine
That eases my mind

I say it makes me feel alive
Even if it never lasts

I've been long dead inside
My body the only part of me still alive
Everything else rotted long ago
