lyrics

It was made with good intent
Those first few steps, your brave ascent
And everything you underwent
With all the substances imbibed

All the highs and all the hurting
Red and raw and sore and dirty
You continue to pervert me
To subvert my hurting mind

But when you scaled that mountainside
Descended the slippery slide
The fall was deep, so deep and wide
And there’s no way back from suicide

How I longed, how I listened
How I hung on every minute
How I found myself within it
So addicted to your charms

Until I’d found, that I’d fallen
And this feeling can’t fulfill me
So why didn’t you just kill me
Smothered slowly in your arms

Cause when I climbed that mountainside
I got so high I thought I’d died
With only you there as my guide
The path we took was suicide…

When there’s no way back
There’s just one way down
When there’s no way back
There’s just one way down

But when you scaled that mountainside
Descended the slippery slide
The fall was deep, so deep and wide
And there’s no way back from suicide…

When I had you beside me
No moral compass left to guide me
Only what hope I had inside me
As we crossed the great divide

And when I climbed that mountainside
I got so high I thought I’d died
With only you there as my guide
The path we took was suicide…

And now I feel my mind begin to slip
And now I fear I’ve got myself a taste
I feel my fall down into the abyss
My psyche and my soul begin to waste

You gave to me a final kiss
Before you went to take the ride
That fall into the deep abyss
The slide into your suicide

When I had you beside me
No moral compass left to guide me
Only what hope I had inside me
As we crossed the great divide

And when I climbed that mountainside
I got so high I thought I’d died
With only you there as my guide
The path we took was suicide

Yes when you scaled that mountainside
Descended the slippery slide
The fall was deep, so deep and wide
And there’s no way back from suicide…
