Shadows.
Hush.
They follow you at night.

Shhh
The ghosts are watching;
they know you're not alright.

Whispers in the darkness
Tell you to let them in
You know how to help them crawl inside
When you slice your skin

"Hush" say the shadows
"Cut it deep and cut it right
God knows you don't deserve it
Don't deserve to see the light."

Shush shush shush
Go the blades against her wrist
Bleeding cherry drops of joy
Across your clenched fist

She will not wake up tomorrow
If she does it's in her grave.
The whispers got to her
And she lost her strength-she caved.
