Know Your Walls

You've been wondering
when does it stop hurting?
I'm afraid it never does
it just won't always
hurt this much
that's just the chance we take
to be broken and to break
that or never
never get involved
that or really
get to know your walls
I've an expanding list
of souls who no longer exist
I'd rather mark my x's there
than on my growing victor wrists
that's just
the chance we take
friends, my friends, again
they tend to be mistakes
but that or never
never get involved
that or really
get to know your walls...
