Happy?

Are you happy with yourself,

Looking in the mirror,

All red faced and teary,

Are you happy with yourself,

Your skin torn to bits,

Your mind deep in the abyss,

Are you happy with yourself,

Your nails full of flesh,

Your brain without rest?

Can you see yourself?

How your pain molds to desire to dig into your skin,

The only way to stop it all is to let yourself dig in!

Are you happy with yourself?

The flesh around your eyes all puffy with tears,

The scars on your body so noticeable from the years!

ARE YOU HAPPY WITH YOURSELF?

The pain and misery you have taken out on your body,

The way you bend stress making yourself so distraught, see?

YES DIG INTO THE FLESH,

IT’S THE ONLY WAY,

DIG INTO THE FLESH,

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

WHAT CAN YOU FIND IN THERE?

FIND ME SOME PEACE OF MIND WITHIN THE BINDING OF YOUR BODY,

RIP AWAY THE SKIN,

DIG IN! SINK IN!

FEEL IT FILL YOUR NAILS.

FEEL THE BURNING ON YOUR SKIN.

THE PAIN WILL SAVE YOU.

the pain will save you.
