"Fist Wrapped in Blood" as written by and Shane Told....
Finish me off, follow the plan
Break all the bonds, sever the ties
And now your mission is complete, find and destroy me.
Torturing me, with words from our lips
Filleting my skin, pulling my teeth
Please forgive me for not being good enough.

Drown your sorrows in my pain
And its something you can't explain.
When I'm choking on words you'll never say
And you'll never feel the same

Bound and gagged, I cannot move or speak
These things I want to say, I can't explain them anyway
So if I had it all again, if I could start from the first words I ever said
I would do it all the same.

Drown your sorrows in my pain
And its something you can't explain.
When I'm choking on words you'll never say
And you'll never feel the same

Your joy is my pain.
My fingers are yours to cut off
And my bones are yours to shatter in pieces.
My teeth are yours to pull out and my soul is yours to slowly rip apart.

I can't trust anyone I meet from now on
My chest feels more like a fist wrapped in blood

    General CommentIn my oppinion I think it's about a really rocky relationship like a love/hate thing and that the guy is basiclly her's to destroy and kill
    "Your joy is my pain.
    My fingers are yours to cut off
    And my bones are yours to shatter in pieces.
    My teeth are yours to pull out
    And my soul is yours to slowly rip apart.
    I can't trust anyone I meet.
    From now on, my chest
    Feels more like a fist wrapped in blood"

    General Commentthe line fist wrapped in blood is from the movie Closer

    "You think love is simple. You think that the heart is like a diagram?"
    "Have you ever seen a human heart? It looks more like a fist wrapped in blood!"

    General Commentthis song is very much about a realationship that he obviously was very hurt in and know he can't trust anyone. Very powerfull lyrics in this song as well as everysong they have written my favourit line in the song is: Your joy is my pain.
    My fingers are yours to cut off
    And my bones are yours to shatter in pieces.
    My teeth are yours to pull out
    And my soul is yours to slowly rip apart.
    I can't trust anyone I meet.
    From now on, my chest
    Feels more like a fist wrapped in blood.

    That is very deep and emotional the girl he is singing about was obviously a bitch lol anyway

    General CommentWhenever I hear this song, it reminds me of my own experiences being bullied throughout my school years.

    "Drown your sorrows in my pain / and it's something you can't explain / When I'm choking on word's you'll never say / and you'll never feel the same..."

    It's in the perspective of the person being bullied, the person who never did anything to deserve the abusive treatment they're recieving. He's talking to the person who's hurting him, the person who will never see the situation from his point of view.

    I like to refer to this song as my own "image song"; I think it describes my own feelings quite well.

    General CommentMy guess goes like this:
    Its about a girl he really liked, and still does, but he let her down somehow and now she really hates him. He know he let her down, so he cant blame her, "Please forgive me for not being good enough".

    "Drown your sorrows in my pain" - like, hurt me back and you might someday be ok. This also goes for "Your joy is my pain.
    My fingers are yours to cut off
    And my bones are yours to shatter in pieces.
    My teeth are yours to pull out
    And my soul is yours to slowly rip apart."

    And the last words, "I can't trust anyone I meet.
    From now on, my chest
    Feels more like a fist wrapped in blood." means that he no longer dares to trust anyone, therefore rejects everyone, pushing them away. Pushing everyone away from his heart until his chest feels like a fist wrapped in blood.
    Just my thoughts.

    General CommentAs soon as the 'Your joy is my pain' line starts...
    haha


    song becomes the best on the album.
    it's like the summary of the album.

    beautiful.


    He's shown and given himself up so completely that he's basically admitting his wholeself is her's (or his, w/e). -My opinion.

    Song's hot.
