Grinder

When I was at my lowest point
You offered your help
You made me think it's what I want
You wanted me to do it myself

Sitting on the table
Gleaming
Telling me your able
Wanting to get blood streaming

I was far enough away
I still heard your cries
I couldn't leave it at bay
I was drawn to say my goodbyes

I did go over and lift you
I looked at you with disdain
I thought about what you wanted to do
I couldn't because of the pain

Not just to my own arm
But to my family and friends
I also thought of the site harm
I didn't want Canning Town to be my end

I set you down
I walked away
I went up for air on common ground
You haven't talked me into it today!
