"If You Want Blood" as written by and Young Scott....
it's criminal
there ought to be a law
criminal
it ought to be a whole lot more
you get nothin' for nothin'
baby, who can you trust?
i got what you want
and, baby, you got the lust

if you want blood
baby you got it
if you want blood
you got it

blood in the streets
blood on the rocks
blood in the gutter
every last drop
you want blood

it's animal
livin' in a human zoo
animal
all the shit they toss to you
feelin' like a prisoner
locked in a cage
thrown to lions
on a second phase

if you want blood
baby, you got it
if you want blood
you got it

blood in the sheets
blood in the sky
blood in the gutter
every last drop
you want blood

    General CommentAnother splendid arrangement by Kozelek, with stunning rhythmic interplay between vocal and guitar...
    Amazing how his vocal performance makes me think of Bruce Springsteen singing "Highway Patrolman" on the "Nebraska" album (another spare, overwhelming folk-rock masterpiece)
