"Bleed" as written by and Gary Anthony James Webb....
Someone is talking
But it's not conversation,
Sounds more like a voice in my head.
It says
'I live in nightmares
I'm the new god of panic
And I'm waiting for you to come home to me.

'So boy, welcome to sleep
I'm gonna make you, make you, make you bleed.'

I could be dreaming
But then maybe that's fatal.
There's nowhere to hide in your dreams.
I'm so uneasy
I'm shaking and nervous.
I'm alone in my room and I'm scared of it.

So, don't let me sleep
It's gonna make me, make me, make me bleed.

My mother told me
'Don't believe in ghost stories.
There's nothing to hurt you in here.'
But she was wrong
And now it's come back to haunt me.
It says it won't leave me alive for long.

I don't want to sleep.
It's gonna make me, make me, make me bleed.

    General CommentThis is one a my favorite songs from Numan's industrial period. It has a catchy beat and sing along lyrics (absolutely horrifying ones at that). Unlike a lot of his new stuff, this sounds clear and simple and isn't buried under piles of computer-generated sludge. The lyrics are so straightforward and uncompromising; you really get to feel how Numan feels in this song.
