"Slit Wrist Theory" as written by Steven Holt, Brock Lindow, Thomas Noonan and Mick Whitney....
With the absence of eye, I can start to bleed again
With the color of hearts it seems like you wear right thin
And as it falls from your mouth, it seems like you needed it more
Well I can still ask for more, I will still ask for more

Get the fuck out, stay the fuck out
It makes me sick (I'm alright)
Slit wrist theory, stains us all

Lace me up, lace me up
I'm still looking for these angels in the snow
Lace me up, lace me up
I'm still looking for these angels in the snow

It seems like a runaround
Words that won't matter
And as it falls from your mouth it seems like you
needed it more
And I will color you all red, I will color you all, red

Get the fuck out, stay the fuck out
It makes me sick (I'm alright)
Slit wrist theory, stains us all

Lace me up, lace me up
I'm still looking for these angels in the snow
Lace me up, lace me up
I'm still looking for these angels in the snow

Braided conversation
Get the fuck out, stay the fuck out
It makes me sick (I'm alright)
Slit wrist theory, stains us all
And caved the fuck in, and bashed the fuck in, it's so old
Slit wrist theory, stains us all

Lace me up, lace me up
I'm still looking for these angels in the snow
Lace me up, lace me up
I'm still looking for these angels in the snow

Lace me up

    General CommentI do not think that this song has anything to do with people cutting themselves or whatnot. I think that "with the absence of eye, I can start to bleed again" means that the person is hiding his pain from others, which is what the bleeding means, to hurt, to feel pain". Not too sure about the rest of it, but if you read Brocks writing style, he's way too good of an artist to be so direct about something. He uses a lot of metaphors and deep text in his songs.

    General CommentActually, in reference to the first line "With the absence of eye, I can start to bleed again... " He could be saying that now that no-one is looking he can continue to 'bleed' whether that being a metaphor or literal.

    General CommentI think its about suicide. "Slit rist theory" and the thing in the chorus, "get the fuck out". Angels in the snow probably has something to do with dying to, and "lace me up" may be something regretting the suicide .

    I don't really know what i'm talkin about, i'm just guessing, so if im wrong about this, dont bother posting messages telling me what a dumbass i am, cos i already know

    General CommentEverytime I listen to this song I think of different things it could mean. My latest one is it could be about someone close to him who may have attempted suicide or cuts themsleves.
    "With the absence of eye, I can start to bleed again..." - here he's in the shoes of his friend...now that there's no-one around he can commit/attempt suicide.
    "Get the fuck out, stay the fuck out. It makes me sick (I'm alright)" - the friend wants to get rid of any suicidal feelings (out of his mind) and he doesn't want them back. Then he's reasurring himself or someone else he's ok.
    "Slit wrist theory, stains us all" - his attempt at suicide has affected everyone he knows not just himself.
    "Lace me up, lace me up. I'm still looking for these angels in the snow" - He wants help and he's still looking for that help or a relief from his suicidal thoughts.
    "It seems like a runaround" - the whole thing is like a vicious circle.
    "Words that won't matter" - no matter what anyone says, he will still feel the same.

    General Commenti thought that "get the fuck out" was something about the suicidal guy in the song trying to distance himself from others
