"Blue Blood" as written by Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis, James Smith, Jack William Bevan, Edwin Thomas Congreave and Walter James Morrison Gervers....
You've got the blood on your hands, I think it's my own.
We can go down to the streets and follow the shores.
Of all the people, we could be two.
Then I bite my nails to the quick, run back home.

You've got blue blood on your hands, I know it's my own.
You came at me in the midnight to show me my soul.
Of all the people, I hoped it'd be you.
To come and free me, take me away.
To show me my home.
Where I was born.
Where I belong.

You've got blue blood on your hands, I want you to know.
I hoped you'd come and take me away, back to my home.
Of all the people, it had to be you.
Then I bite my nails to the quick, run back home.

You showed me.
Where to go.
To my home.
To my home.
So take me.
Through the roads.
That you know.
To my home.

You've got blue blood on your hands, I know it's my own.
You came at me in the midnight to show me my soul.

You showed me.
Where to go.
To my home.
To my home.
So take me.
Through the roads.
That you know.
To my home.

Come with me accept it, affect it, protect it.
Come with me accept it, so now you know.
Come with me accept it, effect it, protect it.
Come with me accept it, so now you know.

You showed me.
Where to go.
To my home.
To my home.
So take me.
Through the roads.
That you know.
Where you know.
Where you know.
To my home.
So take me.
Through the roads.
That you know.
Where you know.
You showed me.
Where to go.
To my home.

(Come with me accept it, affect it, protect it.
Come with me accept it, so now you know).
(Come with me accept it, effect it, protect it.
Come with me accept it, so now you know).

You've got blue blood on your hands, I know it's my own.
We can go down to the streets and follow the shores.
Of all the people, I hoped it'd be you.
You showed me my way back home.
To where I was born.
Where I belong.
Where I belong.

    General CommentI also think its "Blue Blood" as in 'the blood of a depressed person' ,like The Supplanter said.

    The video reminded me of a book I had to read for school called "El niño que enloqueció de amor". The little kid falls in love with an older woman because she humors him, thinking of it like a game and 'what a cute little kid'. The boy goes crazy over suffering from unrequited love.

    The kid in the video is a great actor. icanfeelthepain

    General CommentI think I got a couple of the lyrics wrong but Yannis' vocal style has changed on this album so it was tough to get a couple of the lyrics.

    Such a wonderful song.

    General Commentgood lyrics overall. i listened to a live version and some of the lyrics are a lot easier to understand.. here's what i got fixed...

    You've got blue blood on your hands
    i think it's my own
    we can go down to the streets
    follow the shores

    of all the people
    we could be two
    but i bite my nails to the quick run back home

    You've got blue blood on your hands
    i know it's my own
    you came at me in the mid of night
    showed me my soul

    of all the people
    i knew it'd be you
    to come and free me, take me away
    show me my home
    where i was born
    where i belong

    You've got blue blood on your hands
    ooh you know
    hope you come and take me away
    back ??? home

    of all the people it had to be you
    then i bite my nails to the quick run back home

    ...
    come and be accepted, affected, protected
    come and be accepted, so now you know
    (2x)


    etc. love this song!!!

    General Commentit says "youve got blue blood on your hands."

    they performed it for bbc and the lyrics sound a bit clearer.

    General CommentAfter listening to the live version of the song, i think its pretty clear its "Come and be accepted, affected, protected"

    Lyric CorrectionYeah, the lyrics on the Total Life Forever website say "I bite my nails to the quick run back home". And I agree with zlan, I'm also pretty sure it's "Come and be accepted, affected, protected".

    Anyway, great song with a very good bassline. It's addictive.
