"Because of the Blood" as written by and Sindri Mar/sigfusson Sigfusson....
I made you a flag out of leaves and grass,
I made you a map out of blood and glass
we were young, and we still are
we were cold, and it was dark
the tide came running one night
he erased our names from the sand
our hands were black from putting out the fire
talked about boys who dance in white
in our neighbourhood the houses were old,
the trees were young, and the summer sea was cold

because of the blood,
I wash my face in the mud
now I'm someone new
now I don't look like you

I sit by the trees that had no leaves,
let the snow seep into me,
and there's no leaves, but that's the way it was supposed to be
that's the way you could feel our hands
were black when we were putting out the fire
talked about you, you dance in white, you dance in white
I pull your hair in the kitchen where the night was burnt??
and we were never coy

because of the blood
I wash my face in the mud
now I'm someone new
now I don't look like you

    Lyric CorrectionThe first line is "I made you a flag out of leaves and grass"

    and I believe the chorus line is "I wash my face in the mud"

    General CommentI made you a flag out of leaves and grass
    I made you a map out of blood and glass
    We were young and we still are
    We were cold and it was dark

    The tide came early one night erased our names
    From the sand, alright, our hands were black
    From putting out the fire
    Talked about war through cans and wire

    In our neighborhood the houses were old
    The trees were young and the summer sea was cold

    Because of the blood
    I wash my face in the mud
    Now I'm someone new
    Now I don't look like you

    I stood by the trees that had no leaves
    Let the snow seep into me
    I was lonely but that's the way it was
    Supposed to be

    That's the way you could feel
    Our hands were black from putting out the fire
    Talked about you
    Through cans and wire
    Through cans and wire

    I pull your hair in the kitchen where
    The night was a blur and we were never bored

    Because of the blood
    I wash my face in the mud
    Now I'm someone new
    Now I don't look like you
