Go to sleep and close your eyes,
And dream of broken butterflies
That tore their wings against a thorn,
You know the pain that they have endured.
shine so bright,
that feels so right.
Dream of the blood trickling down
and wake up just before you drown.
The moonlight shining off
your tears as you bleed out your worst fears.
So tonight when you start to cry,
Whisper the cutters' lullaby;
Hush a bye baby,
you're almost dead,
you don't have a pulse and
your pillow is red.
Your family hates you,
your friends let you bleed.
Sleep tight with a knife,
cause it's all you'll need.
Rock a bye baby,
Broken and scarred,
You didn't know life would be this hard.
Time to end the pain
you hid so well,
And down will come baby,
straight back to hell....
