    This is basically for people who have suicidal thoughts (um, all of you I'm guessing). Well I was just listening to music when I was upset a few days ago and I found a really interesting song. I do think it's enough to get you onto the right track when you're feeling as if you want to end everything right now. It made me think of all of you guys and how it could save atleast one of your lives, so I thought I'd come on and share it with you all.

    So the song is called Magicians Assistant and the artists are Dan Le Sac & Scroobius Pip. I'll put the link up too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VH9CxM6o-eI

    I'll post the lyrics just so you can see what they say and stuff, even if you don't listen to the song take a look at the lyrics please. I do find them very powerful and meaningful.

    All the best to you all xxx



    It's tragic; you tried to cut yourself in half,
    But this aint magic; in fact it's something far more dark and more dramatic,
    Self harm... that's what they call it,
    'Cause it just affects you,
    It's your life, your body, so you can choose what you do,
    And if one day you can't rein it in,
    And of your last breath you are the only witness,
    Then so be it ‘cause it's your last breath,
    And it's nobody else's business.

    But, how about your little sister?
    I mean, you think your life's been bad,
    And by no means am I belittling that,
    'Cause I know the troubles you've had,
    But a teen finding out her big sister chose death over life,
    Finding out instead of turning to her with your problems, You turned to a knife,
    That's a whole lot of pain to deal with,
    And a whole lot of damage,
    And the only role model she has is little more than words,
    Engraved in granite.

    But as you said before this just affects you,
    It's your life, your body, so you can choose what you do,
    And if one day you can't rein it in,
    And of your last breath you are the only witness,
    Then so be it ‘cause it's your last breath,
    And it's nobody else's business.

    But then, how about your parents?
    God knows they've done all they can to support,
    Yeah, you didn't grow up in a mansion,
    But they gave you the best life they could afford,
    And the second that last bit of life trickles out,
    And your lungs cease to breath,
    They've fail the most important task that they will ever receive,
    They failed to give their child a life that's worth living,
    And that's a failure as long as they live, of themselves, is unforgiving.

    But as you said before, this just affects you,
    It's your life, your body, so you can choose what you do,
    And if one day you can't rein it in,
    And of your last breath you are the only witness,
    Then so be it 'cause it's your last breath,
    And it's nobody else's business.

    But, how about your friends?
    How did they fail to see this coming?
    I mean, you can only hold so much pain,
    And recently it seems like the tap's been left running,
    Families grow distant, but it's meant to be your friends you can rely on,
    They shouldn't be there for just fun and drinks,
    They should be the shoulder to cry on,
    They should be the ones you turn to,
    When you can't talk to your family,
    But they failed too because although you didn't ask for their support,
    It should have been mandatory.

    But as you said before, this just affects you,
    It's your life, your body, so you can choose what you do,
    And if one day you can't rein it in,
    And of your last breath you are the only witness,
    Then so be it 'cause it's your last breath,
    And it's nobody else's business.

    But then, what about me?
    What kind of boyfriend am I?
    Instead of living a life I was a big part of,
    You would rather die,
    Instead of fighting though together,
    And turning things around,
    You decided the grass is greener,
    On the other side of the ground,
    Of our shared lives there was nothing worth living,
    For as far as you could see,
    So if that's the case for you,
    Then what is there left in this life for me?

    But as you said before, this just affects you,
    It's your life, your body, your sister,
    Your parents, your friends, and your partner,
    So you can choose what you do,
    And if one day you can't rein it in,
    And of your last breath you are the only witness,
    Then fuck everybody else ‘cause that aint something you've got to live with.

    The magician's assistant,
    Too many problems to list them,
    Not enough people to listen,
    The magician's assistant,
    The magician's assistant.​
