"Bloodletting" as written by and Blythe/morton/campbell/adler/spear....
Archaic methods transfer
Through well in the face of mass denial.
Bitterness fuels the mode
For the escape of mediocrity.
Stepping the grate, shattered nerves
Ground down to a glass edge
Carrying me away.

Bloodletting a favorite game of solitaire.
A suicide mission destined to fail,
A moving ladder to climb taking me away.
I wouldn't have it any other way

    General Commentwell, this for one, isnt a Lamb Of God song, its Burn The Priest lol, which was Lamb Of God before they had the name, but Burn The Priest was just as badass

    "Nerves ground down to a glass edge carrying me away, bloodletting a favorite"
    i think hes either talking about cutting himself like a little emo kid, or glass edge being a drink
    idk though

    Song MeaningI'm pretty sure It's actually about the way people handled getting sick in Ancient Greece. Claudius Galen (129-200 AD) came up with the idea of "Bloodletting." When someone was sick during that era, it was believed that letting out the "bad blood" would let out the illness. I guess it turned out that this bloodletting concept was not such a good one lol

    General CommentArchaic methods transfer through well in the face of mass denial.

    Meaning: Being crucified is an old and out-dated form of execution. Christianity really took off after Jesus' death, proving that "archaic methods transfer through well in the face of mass denial."

    Bitterness fuels the mode for the escape of mediocrity.

    Meaning: Mankind kills one another for entertainment.

    Stepping the grate, shattered nerves ground down to a glass edge carrying me away.

    Meaning: Jesus' lungs were crushed by His own body on the cross. Gravity pulled His rib cage down, destroying His lungs. It must have felt like a glass edge.

    Bloodletting a favorite game of solitaire.

    Meaning: Mankind kills one another for entertainment. Jesus lets his blood be poured out for us.

    A suicide mission destined to fail, a moving ladder to climb taking me away.

    Meaning: Jesus could have saved Himself by calling on his angels, but He didn't give in. Now imagine breathing when your lungs are being crushed. It would be like a moving ladder, because your chest goes up and down when you take a breath. Jesus is dying slowly.

    I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Meaning: Jesus lets his blood be poured out. He saves us from sin.
