"Bleed" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
it's all i wanted
it's all i could see
you can watch me bleed
settle your belief inside of me

take someone beside you
realize this ain't your love to break
and the someone beside you
settle your belief inside of me, me

feeling in your heart
was more than i could see here

it's all i wanted
it's all i could see
you can watch me bleed
settle your belief inside of me, me

feeling in your heart
was more than i could see, here
feeling in your heart
was more than i could see
one and two is three

would you should you could you cut me down down
would you should you could you cut me down down
down down
would you should you could you cut me down down
down down down
down down
down down

    General CommentIt seems the references to blood( "you can watch me bleed" ) would perhaps imply cutting or something similar, and I wonder if the phrase "one and two make three" is something about perhaps the person he loves either being in a relationship with someone else, or cheating on him(if they were involved)with someone else, and he's asking her to tell him and therefore cut him, and his love, down from the strings that keep him tied to her...At least, that's what it makes me think of...

    General CommentThere is a studio version of this that was recorded the same time as "There it Goes", "Under Your Spell", "I Fall" and a couple of others. I hope it surfaces, I want it really bad! Especially if it's remastered like all of the demos from Billy's Father's Home on Mashed Potatoes. Fyi, "I Fall" somehow surfaced, but it wasn't remastered :(

    General Comment"it's all i wanted

    The way I understand this song is that the singer wanted something/someone and that was all they could see.

    "you can watch me bleed
    settle your belief inside of me"
    He hurt someone in the process of getting what they wanted and now they're feeling guilty.

    "take someone beside you
    realize this ain't your love to break
    and the someone beside you
    settle your belief inside of me, me"
    But he wants the person to understand that even though he hurt them, that gives them no right to break the love the singer and this other person have.

    " feeling in your heart
    was more than i could see here "
    He didn't know how strong this person's feelings were.. or he didn't believe they were.

    "one and two is three "
    This line somehow stands out, to point out there's three people in this situation and one of them is the odd one out and that's just the way life is..

    " would you should you could you cut me down down "
    He's wondering if he deserves to be punished by this person he hurt.

    Just the picture I get when I listen to it....
