"Bleeds No More" as written by and Shane Told....
My heart bleeds no more
Now, it's been turned to stone
Your stomach feels sick for someone else
I've broken both my legs falling for you
Drag me on the ground

Powerless I stand, tarnished blade
Cutting through, pushed into my vein
Blood still stains my hands
Sharpening my sense of pain outside

My heart bleeds no more
Now, it's been turned to stone
Your stomach feels sick for someone else
I've broken both my legs falling for you
Drag me on the ground

Killing everything off inside
Make sense of everything you tried to hide
Hide from me

My heart bleeds no more
Now, it's been turned to stone
My stomach feels sore from cutting up
I ruined all my sanctity for you
Smash me on the ground

I wanted to
Convince myself there's nothing else to do
I wanted to
Provide you with proof of what you put me through
I wanted to
Pretend that it was you
You're the worst thing that's ever happened to me
Die

Killing everything off inside
Make sense of everything you tried to hide
Hide from me

My heart bleeds no more
Now, it's been turned to stone
Your stomach feels sick for someone else
I've broken both my legs falling for you
Smash me on the ground

    General CommentThe first verse is an act of self mutilation. You're cutting yourself, "sharpening the sense of pain outside". Well, if the pain on the outside is sharpened, the inside pain is becoming dulled. You're numbing yourself on the inside.

    The second verse is like a continuation of the first one and it's showing how you're "killing off eveything inside". Trying not to feel. And also, you're wondering where everything went wrong. You're "trying to make sense of everything [she] tried to hide from [you]".

    The chorus is the way you feel, "[Your] heart bleeds no more", because you're numb now. It's just stone. You're numbing yourself from the way "[her] stomach feels sick for someone else". You know that feeling you get when you love someone so much it hurts? Well, she doesn't feel that way for you. It's for someone else. Even when you've "broken both [your] legs falling for [her]". After all this, you can't even walk alone and you're telling her to "drag [you] on the ground like you're nothing because that's how you feel like.

    The second chorus is about how you're stomach feels so "sore from cutting up". You know that feeling when you see someone you're falling over for? You're getting tired of that feeling because it's unrequited. Even when you "ruined all [your] sanctity for [her]. The pain, no matter how numb you are, hurts. So you're asking her to "smash [you] on the ground" because you know that it'll make her happy. She's sadistic enough to make your hopes rise and just drop them right in front of you. Plus, you get to perish now after all the things you went through.

    You want to convince yourself that there's nothing else to do, but just die. You want to show her that she was the one that killed you, but you can't. You're too in love with her to ever hurt her like that. "The I wanted to pretend that I was you" is a little murky, but I think that it means that you saw something in the girl. Something that you wanted to become. But in the end, you're just you.

    So far I have been explaining all this in a male's point of view, but it's possible to be a female in love with a man. But, this song is universal and "You're the worst thing that ever happen to me" said by a female accents this fact.

    PS, the same for homosexual/lesbian people too, although you'd have to switch some of the words around from the above text.

    General Commentthis song is about how much someone can be in love and try sooo hard to satisfy/impress the one that they love. Then the person that was loved dumps the other as if its not a big deal only to fall in love with someone else.

    General CommentI think this one is about unrequited love, possibly with an ex... he likes the girl so much and tries to do so much to make her notice him "i've broken both my legs falling for you " but it never happens, and he starts to hate himself because of it...

    Eventually she gets fed up, says something like "you're the worst thing that ever happened to me", which is the real killer.

    General CommentThis is also g poem in the book "revolution on canvas" if you havent read it,i HIGLY recomend it.but thats besides the point.i think one of the saddest things about this song is that he is(or was)so in love with this girl and she says "youre the worst thing thats ever happened to me" ouch.

    General Commenthas anyone seen fight club?
    when marla is boarding the bus she says to the narrator "you're the worst thing thats ever happened to me"
    and it sounds..just like the part in the song.
    so i thought that possibly the song could be inspired by fight club.
    because fight club is an awesome movie.
    and this is an awesome song.
