"The Bleeding" as written by Zoltan Bathroy and Ivan Moody....
I remember when all the games began
Remember every little lie
And every last goodbye
Promises you broke, words you choked on
And I never walked away its still a mystery to me

Well I'm so empty
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me
Well you're so unclean
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me

The lying
The bleeding
The screaming, was tearing me apart
The hatred
Deceiving
The bleeding
It's over

Paint the mirrors black (to forget you)
I still picture your face and the way you used to taste
Roses in a glass dead and wilted
To you this all was nothing,
Everything to you is nothing

Well you're so filthy
I'm better off without you and you're better off without me
Well I'm so ugly
You're better off without me and I'm better off without

The lying
The bleeding
The screaming, was tearing me apart
The hatred
The beatings
Disaster
It's over

As wicked as you are, you're beautiful to me
You're the darkest burning star, your my perfect disease

The lying
The bleeding
The screaming, was tearing me apart
The hatred
The beatings
It's over
Disaster

The lying
The bleeding
The screaming, was tearing me apart
The hatred
The beatings
It's over
Disaster
It's over now

    General CommentGuaade, now I realize you are probably a Forty year-old balding, one toothed, chronic masturbator that lives in your mothers basement, and thinks that NSYNC is still the shit and all. But please, there is no reason to throw a hissy fit when a band comes out with a song that may or may not lyrically have the same premise as others, after all. They are a metal band, so no they wont write lots of songs about Unicorns and candy mountain, but they will about relationships that get fucked up and crush them. that is the reason for rock, to vent the frustration and aggression of pain and or anguish over an idea, situation, or belief. The song is completely original in style, just for the fact of the complete change of tempo. And the band is amazing because they have the ability and balls, to show that metal is also an art form just like any other type of music. Now, if your opinion differs in any way from mine, which I am sure it does. Make a cd, send me the lyrics, I will then find a copy of it, and listen. And if you do anywhere near as well, I will apologize. If not... SUCK MY BALLS

    Song Meaningthis is not what is means to me but this is the real meaning of this song, and story line of this song.

    he had a girl friend that had been abused and neglected.
    then him and her got together cause he loved her and she loved him.
    then once while he was on tour she felt like no one cared for her.
    she was all alone no one there she could take to about her problems.
    she was tired of him going on tour and more...
    then one day there was no one there by her side.
    to stop her she over dosed on any pills she could find.

    that is the real meaning of this song just listen to the words once not the music. picture this story in your head while you listen you will see.

    General Commentgotta say that this song is fucking amazing and intense as hell live. obviously this is about being in love and having that bitch hurt you (yes yes personal experience) but that no matter what and through everything that goes on there will always be a place where the two will be together or have a connection. "You're my perfect disease" is the best line, very plainly saying that no matter the bullshit that we've been through there is something about you and me that works and i can't get away.

    General Commentfucking great song, obviously about losing someone you love very dearly due to lies and the backlash(pain) of it all, coinciding with the reflection the songwriter has on said relationship.
