I had wrists donning slits flowing constantly
My broken body in a wreck, I'm wrapped around a tree
A crosswalk hit and run, the finish line for me
People clutter in the gutter, take a look and see

No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clingin' on to life by the skin of my teeth
No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clingin' on to life by the skin of my teeth

And my blood flows through the streets, deluge from the wounds
Empty jars of sleeping pills on the dresser in my room
And my wet brain neighbor cranes his neck to see
In time the white light's a train bearing down on me

No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clingin' on to life by the skin of my teeth
No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clingin' on to life by the skin of my teeth

I won't feel the hurt, I'm not trash any longer
You know that it doesn't kill me, it only makes me stronger
I need a ride to the morgue that's what 911 is for
So tag my toe and don't forget, ooh to close the drawer

No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clingin' on to life by the skin of my teeth
No escaping pain, you belong to me
Clingin' on to life by the skin of my teeth
