Caress my face and never let this feeling end
This is what I predicted from the start
You have given me faith in them again
As I look to the sky it bled white butterflies

Stretch open the wound again
I'm bleeding, bleeding... bleeding
Covering your naked skin
Uncovering your naked skin

Drowning in the sunlight
The sky is no longer bright
Drenched with white butterflies
White butterflies... butterflies

I'm bleeding, I'm bleeding...white
I'm bleeding, I'm bleeding...white
I'm bleeding, I'm bleeding...white
I'm bleeding, I'm bleeding...white

    General CommentIt's a shame these guys arent well-known. Definately their best song here, and the lyrics are very orignal. Not sure what they mean though.

    General Commentisnt it legend tht if a white butterfly appears from a dead body, then it is tht bodys soul, and tht butterfly must be kept alive, as to go to heaven, or whatever u need a white butterfly

    General Commentthis song is soo great. the hurt process is definetly one of the best screamo bands ive heard in a long while..their voices go together so well and the screaming is awesome..i am not to sure on the meaning of this song, but i do know that it kicks major ass..i love the ending "im bleeding"..these guys really understand how to end a song, most of their songs end really strong and i think thats great

    General Commenti like the screaming part, but i dont know about vocals. i cant decide if he can sing or not. i find it very strange that he contradicts himself in the chorus too. uncovering, then covering your naked skin.
