"Blood" as written by and Jack Christopher Allsopp....
A kid got stuck on a sliver of silver
Watched in the street by a gang of builders
Blood running down into the gutter

Next kid's caught climbing out the window
Policeman switched off his Nintendo
Mom couldn't do anything but stutter

Now the first kid's laid out on a stretcher
Red mask scrawled on a hooded sweater
Stand back for the defribulator

And the second kid's steady four walls pacing
He's thinking about the crime and the time he's facing
Mom just said "I'll see you later"


And I still love you
You'll always be my little soldier
I still love you
Whatever, whatever, whatever you do


Gayle stop dead hanging out the laundry
Reggie's dream with the words "I'm horny"
Blood drains from my face so quickly

Mom gets home half an hour later
Kicks off her shoes to read the paper
Gayle just sits there looking sickly

Mum says "Baby, what's the matter?"
Tears fall as she begins to blabber
At that moment Daddy walks in

An atmosphere a knife could cut through
Mum says "We know what you've been up to"
"I think you should pack your things, don't you?"

And I still love you
Even though you fucked us over
I still love you
Whatever, whatever, whatever you do

So it is, so it was, so it always will be
So it is, so it was, so it always will be

I still love you
Blood is always thicker than water
I still love you
Whatever, whatever, whatever you do

    Song MeaningI think this song is mostly about the bonds of family, hence being called 'blood', but the song also speaks about blood in a different way, or the kid who was "stuck on a sliver of silver", seeming to illuminate the darker side of blood.
    At any rate, it's an excellent song, puts you right there when you listen! : )

    General Comment*girl stops dead hanging out the laundry
    red g string with the words i'm horny
    blood drains from her face so quickly

    the scenario is that a girl finds a g string ( neither her or her mothers)
    she then tells her mother who then tells her dad to leave

    the song is about the bonds of family, and whatever happens you are still family.
