"Bad Blood" as written by Bear's Den (Communion Publishing). Produced and Mixed by Ian Grimble and Mastered by Christian Wright at Abbey Road Studios....
Well sever the ties
Cut me out
Fill up the hole
That I tied and I tried and I tried to fill
Oh, but I'll lie and I'll lie at will
Just to keep your feet off the floor
And to keep my wolves from your door

Forgive me for I am not acting myself
But these bees in my breath have to come out
Well you give me no reason to doubt your word
But I still somehow still have my reasons
I'm sorry I don't mean to scare you at all
I'm just trying to drain all this bad blood
All this bad blood
All my bad blood

Well I'll slash the tires
And I'll lock the door
So no one gets out
if there's a rupture to the structure of this house that we built
And I fucked it and I fucked it and I fucked it until
Those wolves they took all they could

Forgive me for I am not acting myself
But these bees in my breath have to come out
Well you give me no reason to doubt your word
But I still somehow still have my reason
I'm sorry I don't mean to scare you at all
I'm just trying to drain all this bad blood
All this bad blood
All my bad blood
All my bad blood
All my bad blood
All my bad blood

    My InterpretationThis feels like another song by them about mental illness. He is running away from someone because he is sick and knows that he will hurt them.

    I think the whole song cane be summed up by these lines "Forgive me for I am not acting myself But these bees in my breath have to come out" He isn't himself, but he needs to get all these negative emotions (the stinging bees) out.

    You feel bad for the author at first, but them you have to think about the person he is doing this too. He needs to get rid of the bad blood, but at what cost to the person on the other end.
