A pedal steel driven lamentation of someone with the tendency to self-destruct.

Lyrics

Self Harm (You Do It To Your Self)

Self-harm
You know you do it to yourself
Self harm
You know it’s you and no one else

No chance
You’d have the grace to admit it
Addicted to
The thing that kills you

You cut your nose right off to spite your face
You know full well there’s no one else to blame
Still you, you like to remonstrate again
Ain’t it (about?) time you face the truth?

You know full well
You do it to yourself
You know full well
It’s self-harm

You know full well
It’s you and no one else
You know full well
It’s self-harm

Self-harm
You sabotage your own prospects
Self-harm
And put the blame on someone else

Self-harm
You taste the fruit forbidden
Learn the hard way
The grass ain’t greener

You shot yourself squarely in the foot
You his and spit as your goose slowly cooks
I hope it is finally understood
There’s no one else to blame, it’s only you
Only you

You know full well
You do it to yourself
You know full well
It’s self-harm

You know full well
It’s you and no one else
You know full well
It’s self-harm

If looks could kill
I would be dead
You chased your thrills
And they backfired
And now your life is a funeral pyre
That is what happens when you play with fire

You know full well
You do it to yourself
You know full well
It’s self-harm

You know full well
It’s you and no one else
You know full well
It’s self-harm

You raised your voice
You made the choice
You took the drug
Drank from the cup
You took the pill
Of your own free will
Couldn’t get enough
Chose to split-up
Went for divorce
My fault of course
Spent all your cash and
Then you crashed
But…
You did it to yourself
