Sharp Edges Lyrics
Mama always told me don't you run
"Don't you run with scissors, son
You're gonna hurt someone"
Mama told me look before you leap
Always think before you speak, and watch the friends you keep
Stay along the beaten path, never...

This song is about someone who had been warned about the dangers of self harm but had already done it or tried. I think the part where it says that it will make them stronger talks about the struggle of quitting or stopping the self harm and that the struggle made them a better person. I also thought the song could have been directly related to the singers life or it could simply be a way of saying that they relate to what ever type of sharp edge the listener has dealt or is dealing with.

"Sharp Edges" talks about things you're told when growing up and how sometimes we have no choice but to do something you're told not to so you can have a concept of what it really means (like not touching a hot stove because it burns). Brad Delson was the lead writer on the song

The song is about how his mother always told him to stay away from sharp edges. And he chose to cut himself on those sharp edges. The edges being drugs alcohol and addiction.
