I'm feeling crossed
I take it inside
Burn up the pain
My thoughts are strange
Just like the things
I used to love
Just like the tree that fell
I heard it
If art is still inside
I feel it

I wanna bleed
Show the world all that I have inside
I wanna scream
Let the blood flow that keeps me alive

Take all these strings
They call my veins
Wrap them around
Every fucking thing

Presence of people
Not for me
Well I must remain in tune
Forever
My love is music
I will marry melody

I wanna bleed
Show the world all that I have inside
I wanna scream
Let the blood flow that keeps me alive

Won't you let me take you
For a ride
You can stop the world
Try to change my mind
Won't you let me show you
How it feels
You can stop the world
But you won't change me

I need music
I need music
I need music to set me free
To let me bleed

    General Comment"What I want and what I need are two different things."
    I feel that the song is a song to one's self. Just a little reminder of what you can trust and who you can't. People will break you, but music can sooth those pains. People leave and go away, but music is forever. It not really that I care about the world, I would just like them to know what I feel. Maybe someone feels the same.

    General Commenti think the song is about giving everything into music. scooter (the cold lead-singer) wants to feel people what he feels, he wants them to get into his music, he wants them to bleed... i think that's pretty much, what the song is about.

    General CommentI think it's about showing the world whats inside, in this case its music and saying music is their life and that's never going to change.They need music to live. Great song for big music lovers.

    General Commentbeautiful, what we know of both cold and aaron/staind. simply about the passion of music as an art and expression, through times of hurt and confusion.

    General CommentThis song is soothing because he is revealing what heals him, and it may seem depressing to others but this song makes me feel so much better about life, because music is my everything that never goes away and it reminds me how important music really is.

    General Commentabsolutely love this song. Anyone that knows this song does the same thing. closes their eyes, sings along or just listens. Music soothes the soul. Favorite line:

    I need music to set me free
    To let me bleed
