Razor’s Edge

We walked along the razor’s edge,

Practiced patience till our feet bled

Wrapping them up, every night

Walking the walk, so as not to fight

But as we bled, a numbness grew

Hollowed us out, through ‘n’ through

Till one day we fell, from a razor’s edge

Into darkness, past moralities pledge.

We fell and fell, into a pit all black

Built with concrete, lies, all we lack

Struggled to climb, grew weak, pale

We nearly pierced the mortal veil

We’re down here still, deathly white

To see us now, be quite a fright

So as you walk, the razor’s edge

Remember us, chase no revenge.
