Broken Hearts and Bleeding Wrists

Broken hearts and bleeding wrists
What the hell happened to that childhood innocence 
Where monsters that lived under the bed
Now lived inside our head,
Keeping us awake at night
Juice became alcohol
And Pepsi shots became tequila shots
Tell me, when did scraped knees 
Become bleeding wrists
And when did we stop believeing 
That tomorrow would be better
How did we become like this, 
Broken and suicidal humans, 
Begging for sickness or disaster
To give an excuse for the way we feel
