"Bleed" as written by and Ed Roland....
I think her gun's unloaded now
I guess tomorrow will be after all?
Who made me judge and jury here?
It seems I'm bearing witness to her fall
I don't know why she cries to me
(She keeps her pain as company)
'Cause it's only time before we all must bleed
Mirrors of her memory
Reflect nothing with each word she says
Her views have got me spinning 'round
I think she's burning alters in her head

    General Commentthat makes perfect sense! but this song helps me through alot, and when i hear it, i realize i can just deal with it, because alot of people bleed, and its selfish for me to make a big deal out of my pain

    General CommentI think it's saying that it's okay when we hit the point of hating life, because everyone's got to 'bleed' sooner or later...and if you hold it all in, you're going to start 'burning alters,' or in other words...go crazy.

    General CommentThe guitar is amazing here. I'm trying to learn it myself. I never figured out the story, besides the idea it was about a suicidal woman. It's coming clear by reading the comments above. Great song. Great CD.
