"Blood Like" as written by and Michael L. Shepard....
I don't know what I've just said
Was it nasty? Why am I like that?
I could show you a good time
Then you'll know that we are blood-like

I've really caught my leg in a trap this time
Your majesty, can't you see?
I'm a sentimental, partly mental, I'm a bad friend

Ooh, I've got a little problem with my own head
But it feels right, it feels like I'm a belly full of dirt
I'm the milk that turned to curds and it feels right

Now stare at the ocean
While your friends all drown
We all need to learn to swim anyway

Oh my darling, hold your head up
Don't you listen, you're my baby girl
Oh my darling, hold your head up
Don't you listen, you're my baby girl

Oh my darling, hold your head up
Don't you listen, you're my baby girl
Oh, my darling, hold your head up now

Hold on, aren't I? I am my own life, own harm
Hold on, aren't I? I am my own life, own harm
Hold on, aren't I? I am my own life, own harm

Stare at the ocean
While your friends all drown
Now you're blood-like

    General CommentThere needs to be comments for this song. I love the piano, especially at around 3:18 when it really kicks in. My favorite from the new album thus far.

    General CommentIn my opinion i think its about a guy telling the person he likes, that he is the way he is, whether he is an emotional mess, or a drug addiict, or whatever he is struggling with.

    "I'm a sentimental, partly-mental, I'm a bad friend
    Ooh, I've got a little problem with my own head
    But it feels right, it feels like I'm a belly full of dirt
    I'm the milk that turned to curds and it feels right"
    That he feels okay the way he is and is telling her to not get discouraged.

    also he reassures her that he does care about her
    "Oh, my darling, hold your head up
    Don't you listen? You're my baby girl
    Oh, my darling, hold your head up
    Don't you listen? You're my baby girl"

    well this is my view on the song, maybe it could mean something totally different.

    Lyric CorrectionIt's not "Hold on, aren't I, I am my own life, my own harm"

    It is "hold on, one eye eying my old life, my old home" via lovedrugmusic.com & their cd booklet.

    my favourite song by them. a wonderful, amazing, & talented band.
