"Blood For Blood" as written by Robert Conrad Flynn, Adam Duce, Chris Kontos and Logan Conrad Mader....
I bite the hand 'cause this hands feeds off me
Devoid of emotion, it lives to cheat
Ignorance is bliss, and respect I gave you
Friend you did claim this
Too bad you can't speak the truth

Give respect
'Cause the rule is blood for blood

Beatings are what you'll inherit this time
Fist bait, your new name
Your pain is my shrine
Pulverize and break
Determination
Pleasure I negate
Your pain brings me salvation

Give respect
'Cause the rule is blood for blood

I was born to tension
Anger came from frustration
I can't back down from aggression
Some hard knocks taught me this lesson

Give respect
'Cause the rule is blood for blood

Give respect
'Cause the rule is blood for blood

    General CommentThis is good beacause its different to machine heads usual heavy drop c/b power chord sound. Shame they don't regard it as one of the their best as it was not on Hellalive or the new dvd Elegies

    General CommentIt's obvious that this song is about being stabbed in the back.

    General CommentYep, and if 'You hit me, I'll hit you back. You stab me, I'll stab you back. You fuck me, I'll fuck you right back.' Blood for blood, eye for an eye.

    General CommentI love the ethos "Give respect" ... something a lot of people in society fail terribly at.
