lirik lagu marc mortimer – the abyss is so deep


the abyss is so deep
like the stains on your sleeves
your mother gave you her life
you gave her your knife

inside your closet
hidden in the shadows
where the light ends
is where you stand

keeping a safe distance from harm
not realising it is by your own hand
that you impair yourself

a shiny cold blade
like ice on a winter day
is the short cut you lay
to take the pain away
your wrists
your thighs
your mind is scarred

the pain slips away
you’ve got rubies on your mind
and rubies on your wrists
you’re rich in that sense
but i hope one day
through the scars
you’ll find your way
