We've ignored the truth trying to paint this perfect life
There's no ugliness if we only close our eyes
But you cut too deep too often
Now I'm hemorrhaging inside
And it's too late to stitch up with a butterfly

Is this what you want?
It this what you need?
To tear out my soul
To watch as I bleed
Is this what you want?
It this what you need?
You tear out my soul
To watch as I bleed

I swallow all my hate and keep it buried deep inside
But I'm choking on a truth that I can't deny
That you cut too deep to often
Now I'm hemorrhaging inside
It will take more than a tourniquet this time

Is this what you want?
It this what you need?
You tear out my soul
To watch as I bleed
Is this what you want?
Are you satisfied?
There's nothing left
You've bled me dry
You've bled me dry
But you cut too deep too often
Now I'm hemorrhaging inside
Now it's too late to stitch up with a butterfly

Is this what you want?
It this what you need?
You tear out my soul
To watch as I bleed
Is this what you want?
Are you satisfied?
There's nothing left
You've bled me dry
You've bled me dry
You've bled me dry
(But you cut too deep too often. Now I'm hemorrhaging inside)
You've bled me dry
(But you cut too deep too often. Now I'm hemorrhaging inside)

    General CommentThis song is on constant replay for me. I love it. Chris's voice is amazing in here. I think it's about how someone is always putting people down and the people that are being put down are asking if 'Is this what you want?
    It this what you need?' because they're being hurt badly...I'm not sure though :/

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs by The Dreaming. It's amazing, they're amazing.
    I think this song is about how somebody just keeps doing something to hurt the other person, and apologies no longer make up for those things.
