Once again, I need your skin, these teeth will take too much, they always do.
Sever me, desire bleeds you dry, coercion takes to long.
Drain you and leave.

You never felt so alive, until you put in your midnight eyes.
These bones you cracked on the run will be left to bleach in the sun.
Smother me, these idle hands will be the death of us (at least one of us)
Salivate; it makes me sick, was I born this way?

You wish you were, you never felt so alive until you put in your midnight eyes
These bones you cracked on the run will be left to bleach in the sun

You simply refuse to accept no consolation gift
These offers I will reject, I won't be swinging by my neck
the cold moon will always eclipse the truth spilling from your lips
These offers I will reject, I won't be swinging by my neck.

Give it up, know when to quit, are you in control?
A balancing act on a burning tightrope
Hunger pains until you get your way, until you get your way
Until you get your way, nausea.

Keep chasing the sound in your head
down a road that will never end
It eats away at you, and you cannot abandon it.

You should have fled when you still had the chance.
You should have fled when you still could have.
Suffocate your hope.
Keep chasing the sound in your head,
down a road that will never end.
It eats away at you and you cannot abandon it.

    General CommentMy favorite bled song, I can't believe nobody commented yet,
    It's about a rational being dealing with or probably losing control with his addiction. Here are just a few lines and my analysis of them, I could provide more but I don't want to write a book.

    desire bleeds you dry, coercion takes too long... easier to give in to temptation rather than force yourself to quit

    these idle hands will be the death of us (at least one of us)... the addiction will either kill the man, or the man will get so sick of the addiction he will quit (eg kill it)

    These offers I will reject, I won't be swinging by my neck... the man claiming he won't give into the drug

    the cold moon will always eclipse the truth spilling from your lips... the drug claiming it has control over the man in his most honest attempts to break free from it
