"Drain the Blood" as written by and Armstrong....
I'm living on shattered faith
The kind that likes to restrict your breath
There's never been a better time than this
Suffocate on eternal bliss

In a city
That swells with so much hate
You seem to rise above
And take its place
The heart pumps until it dies
Drain the blood, the heart is wise

All my friends are murder
All my bones no marrows in
All these fiends want teenage meat
All my friends are murderers

Away....

I never met a pearl quite like you
Who could shimmer and rot at the same time through
There's never been a better time than this
To bite the hand of the frost bitten menace

All my friends are murder
All my bones are marrows in
All these fiends want teenage meat
All my friends are murderers

Away....away......away....

Whoa whoa whoa whoa.....

I'm alive in uterine
A stab in the dark, a new day had dawned
Open up and let it flow
I'll make it yours so here we go...

All my friends are murder
All my bones are marrows in
All these fiends want teenage meat
All my friends are murderers

Away he's gone away......

    General Commenthey astrozombie-
    i think the pearl reference isn't a positive one, about someone helping her out... it seems more like it's referring to someone who has betrayed her, like they shimmered like a pearl on the surface but in reality they were rotten all the way through.

    Also, maybe she's talking about leeches? people who sucked her dry while pretending to be her friend? they tried to "drain the blood", but "the heart is wise" and can tell when the blood is being drained, meaning she caught on.

    General CommentBrody says all the lyrics on this album is based around the divorce with Tim, but she used metaphores and such so people could base the songs and let them revolve around their own personal lives.

    General CommentIt's been said, and it's pretty obvious that this song is about Tim. This album reminds me of a Punk version of Alanis Morrisette's early stuff about Dave Coulier. I've always loved bitter ending love songs by chicks. I don't know why. It sounds like she depended too much on him to make him happy. You can see it in her old songs too. I knew the relationship would end when I heard "Young Crazed Peeling" when she sings, "I love a man from California, he's the prettiest thing, we got the same disorder. How you feel! It's okay! It's never gonna change anyway!" Sounded obsessive. I'm thinking Tim felt smothered, and rightfully so. I've had similar relationships and the signs are all there. Tim was naive and thought he could "save" her from her sorrows. Brody was let down (rightfully so) because he built her up and let her down.
    At leaast that's my take on it.

    My InterpretationSurely it's about abortion?

    The entirity of the album art which comes with 'Coral Fang' suggests abortion.

    General Commentits obviously about her and Tim's relationship, you can;t get anymore obvious than the line "all these fiends want teenage meat" because she and Tim met when she was 16 and she moved to LA for him when she was 18 and he was about 12 years older or so from what i recall
