"Hand of Blood" as written by and Matthew/james Tuck....
Oh
There goes my Valentine again
I'm soaked in red for what she said
And now she's gone
Oh my God have I done it again
There's a pulse that is deafening
I can't help what I hear in my head,
Its the switch that I flip (when you said)

Hand of blood
I don't want to feel, my heart is breaking
Hand of blood
I don't want to see, my life is burning

I saw you look away
Is what you've seen too much to take
Or are you blind and seeing nothing
(I saw you run)
I saw you run away
Is what I've done too much to take
Or are you scared of being nothing.

There's a stain on my hand and it's red
Oh my god am I losing it
I can't help what I've done or I've said
?It's a button I push? (when you say)

Hand of blood
I don't want to feel, my heart is breaking
Hand of blood
I don't want to see, my life is burning.

I saw you look away
Is what you've seen too much to take
Or are you blind and seeing nothing
(I saw you run)
I saw you run away
Is what I've done too much to take
Or are you scared of being nothing

I saw you look away
Is what you've seen too much to take
Or are you blind and seeing nothing
(I saw you run)
I saw you run away
Is what I've done too much to take
Or are you scared of being nothing

    General CommentIt's a song about the pure mental emotion and anger someone can make you feel when it all fucks up. Probably about all the shit that goes on in your head when someone messes you about...

    Absolutely love the riffs and solo's

    General CommentFucking incredible song. Bring back this kind of metal. They are awesome live, don't surpass the chance to see them!
    I agree with beni_ffaf, it's about anger and emotion. I'm surprised no-one's thought about the obvious surface meaning...murder.
    I think it's about a guy who's relationship was dissolving, ("I saw you look away", "Is what I've done too much to take?")it made him angry and drove him mad ("I can't help what I hear in my head, it's the flip that I switch")and he ended up slaughtering his girlfriend, hence 'Hand of Blood'- blood on his hands for her death, and the first line, meaning he believes she got what she deserved.
    This is just my interpretation. There is so much fury in this song, it's alive!
    Over and out.

    General CommentI actually don't think it's about murder. I think the blood is symbolic to his broken heart. I think it's like she's breaking his heart and ending it and he can't take it and he's just pissed off beyond belief. I think the whole "Is what ive done to much to take or are you scared of being nothing? " is about how he's reacting to the breakup and she's leaving because she's afraid of what people will think about what she did to him.

    General Commenti agree with the people whove said its about a broken relasionship... but me thinks that the relasionship broke down because of something that hes done ( is what ive odne too much to take) and hes gone mad at himself for ending somethign that he cant live without..

    this is such a fab song, the riffs and the anger, and the general honest anger in the song is incredible!!!

    cant wait for the next album..WOOOOOP
