"On Wings Of Lead" as written by Brandan Schieppati, Scott Danough, Brian Leppke, Marta Peterson, Ryan Wombacher and Derek Wayne Youngsma....
Nothing was supposed to hurt like this.
Missing you was always one more kiss.
Now there's nothing that I can do.
One more nail in the coffin, and it's all for you.

Always were and always were a simple love story.
You were everything I ever hoped and dreamed.
Drown me in a pool of my blood.
It's getting harder just to breathe.

I'll suffocate you faster just so you can't see, so you can't see me sleep.
It's getting harder just to say the right things.
I've seen the angel's face, and I've heard her sing to me.
From my reflection on this razor

Blade, I've heard ten thousand dying screams,
And they're calling me. the day
Will break on this saddest day, so don't let me wake.
I've heard this all before, and I've seen this over and over again.

Don't let me wake.
Drown me in a pool of my blood.
It's getting harder just to breathe.
I'll suffocate you faster just so you can't see, so you can't see me sleep.

So you can't see me sleep.
The day will break on this saddest day, so don't let me wake.
I've heard this all before, and I've seen this over and over again.
Don't let me wake.

Nothing was supposed to hurt like this.
And missing you, was always one more kiss.
And now there's nothing that I can do.
There's just one more nail in the coffin.

There's just one more nail, and it's all for you.
I've seen the angel's face, and I've heard her sing to me.
From my reflection on this razor blade,
I've heard ten thousand dying screams,

And they're calling me.
The day will break on this saddest day, so don't let me wake.
I've heard this all before, and I've seen this over and over again.
Don't let me wake

    General Commentthis is probably one of the best songs ive heard in a long time. to me, its about losing someone that you really cared about and now you feel like you cant go on without them so you want to kill them. and then off yourself.

    General CommentTo me this is about hard times and how they've happened before and that you're just to the point where you don't want to care anymore when you realize that it can get better in time...maybe that's just what I think because of my own personal feelings these days

    General CommentI thinks I dont need to say what this song means, everyone else pretty much nailed it. Its a mutual feeling among many.

    General CommentThe begining of this song is fantastic, they should do a cover of this song that sounds like that the whole way through.

    General CommentI got into bleeding through because of a friend that basically lived for this kind of music. During that time I was exactly feeling like this song. I didnt want to go on any more and I wanted her dead so much because of the pain she caused me and the fact she didnt care about it at all. It was the hardest thing to deal with. And listening to Bleeding Through just made the feelings really worse and made me a colder person. Im not dissing them, its just that misery loves company and self-pitty. It took me 2 years to recover from the pain to the extent that I wasnt always trying to ease my pain. But healing is out there, its just not found in music like Bleeding Through. It is only found in God, and thanks to Him, i've been able to stop cutting, closing myself up from the world, feeling numb to everyone around me. Im happy and filled with joy and a peace that cant be explained, but songs like these never helped me.

    General Commenti got this song accidentally by looking to find avenged sevenfold - bat country. but as soon as i heard this, i wanted to know who was it by because its so awesome.

    i think this is about a guy who loved a girl so much, but realised she didn't like him at much, and then they broke up, and he started to hate her so much, and hate this world and is thinking of suicide.

    But unlike all you guys, i never been through this kind of situation before. so bleh. :P

    General CommentI believe this song is not as simple as most of you say. I'm not saying it isn't a complex elegy, I'm only insinuating somebody missed something before every one agreed. As well as in "Love Lost in a Hail of Gun Fire" there is an element people overlook. I saw it before realizing the rest of the song, but in a way it conjures the rest of the song when one comes to grips with this piece's significance.
    I guess I was looking for it long before I heard Bleeding Through. I couldn't find a song that fit what I've been feeling over the course of years now. Some bands have come close like Ill Nino, but none identical to my quarrel. The piece, the overlooked, the ways I feel, have to do with falling in love...
    I found my soulmate, and she showed me so many things I never had or understood. My ignorance was like an empty space of potential, and the more that pretty girl taught me, the more that knoledge became a structure for what I admired. I admired her so much, she was truly the shit. She taught me not to sell out, to keep an open mind, that I shouldn't be embarrassed of my family, or myself. Her lovelyness of then is my standard of now and always.
    You know what happened to the girl of my dreams, my soulmate? She sold out. The most ironic of special qualities and principals. The one that's jaded. It is not about music, clothes, looks, and stuff; that shit bothered me A LOT, but it's her reaction to movies, her reaction to my face. EVERY FACE IS DIFFERENT but that look hardly changes. It's disgusting. She wants me to approve of her fake. I hate it, it's like all the little, little, shit drives me insane because I spite her subconsciously for the shit she can change (the music....etcetera)
    She says she'd do anything so I could feel her once again. She lies day in and day out so I will stay attatched. I stare closely at who I see though, like monitoring 'the astranged Father' who left, once he's alienated one's life in his return. You know that person's important to you some how, but inside you're mad because they didn't try hard enough and now... stranger before you. Then again I have her all figured out, her flukes are like a science to me now.
    I feel like I'm in fucking hell sometimes. I look at this new girl who's madly in love with me and I feel her true soul's presence. I want to touch it's physical form and see her again so badly but I can't even though it's right in front of me. So thirsty and satan holds the glass of water that's empty when it reaches my lips. What a dick! Once, I looked over at her and the second after she's in my eye shot There's a glimpse like I blinked. It's slower and more solid than a blink as if there's no light in the room, and then a flash from the inside out of the darkness. I swear for s split second I really saw her again. The first time in almost two years then. I saw my baby WAP BITCH!! Back to reality. Talk about a slap in the face, it hurt so bad I just started crying right there at random. Nothing's really random anymore though, I can predict when she'll make a mistake. Sometimes I want to shoot the bitch and forget our lost reality. Could I forget that? No. I want to die but not in sin from myself although it tempts me, but some other way. I want to go to sleep happy, dream I'm lying with my soulmate again. Maybe she's in wedding gown or an old t-shirt she believes in. Everything will be perfect and I won't wake.
