"Flesh Without Blood" as written by and Claire Elise Boucher....
You claw, you fight, you lose
Got a doll that looks just like you
Remember when we used to say
"I love you" almost every day
I saw a light in you
Going out as I closed our window
You never liked me anyway

I don't see the light I saw in you before
And now I don't, and now I don't
And now I don't care anymore

Baby, believe me
If you had every chance
You'd destroy everything you love
(Uncontrollable)
If you don't need me
Just let me go

You hate, you bite, you lose
After all, I just don't like you
It's nice that you say you like me
But only conditionally
Your voice, it had the perfect flow
It got lost when you gave it up though
'Cause you want money
You want fame

I don't see the light I saw in you before
And now I don't, and now I don't
And now I don't care anymore

Baby, believe me
If you had every chance
You'd destroy everything you love
(Uncontrollable)
If you don't need me
Just let me go

Baby, believe me
I don't know how many times
You destroyed everything that you love
(Uncontrollable)
If you don't need me
Just let me go
Baby, believe me
I don't know how many times
You destroyed everything that you love
(Uncontrollable)
If you don't need me
Just let me go

(Uncontrollable)

    General CommentShe said on an interview that much of the album is aimed at the people trying to take her music away from her. So, I'm guessing that the comments are towards people who have made comments about her music along the lines of not liking the new stuff. In other words, fine just move on.
    Me, I love all the music she puts out. So creative and powerfully emotionally charged.

    These lines support that general theme of the consumers of media trying to restrict artists rather than respecting and appreciating what the artists want from their art. It's a conflict most artists have to face when they are thrust into a larger spotlight.

    It also sounds somewhat like a eulogy to a broken relationship, which in a sense can be applied to her and her audience.

    I love Art Angels and consider it her best album.
