"Bleeding You Dry" as written by and James Saul/dench Atkin....
Drinking there's no tomorrow
Drowning sins and sorrows
I've passed this way before
And just drank some more

I woke up with a red face
And war paint
And a loss of grace
I won't be back in second place
By taking something with bad taste

I catch it every time
I don't know why but I like this feeling
Part of something higher
And I'm not just bleeding you dry

Daylight is a mystery
When quoting lines from history
Of famous drunks that used to be
But now all this is lost to me

Their contributions used to grate
As I explained away their fate
With deadlines I'll never make
And the fact I'm doing nothing

I catch it every time
I don't know why but I like this feeling
Part of something higher and I'm not just bleeding
Don't know why, why, why but I like this feeling
Part of something higher and I'm not just
Bleeding you dry

Faster, faster my chemical master
My problem solver, my powered saint
Give me the power to go forever
And make my blood just red wet hate

I don't know why but I like this feeling
Part of something higher and I'm not just bleeding
Don't know why, why, why but I like this feeling
Part of something higher and I'm not just
Bleeding you dry

    General CommentThis song eludes me. In some respect I know it involves drinking.. and more specifically.. the feeling of being plastered.. but I think it may contain a few too many phrases and slang that go right over my head..
    Anyone know what "war paint" or even the tyitle of the song are supposed to mean?
    I hope the song is more then him singing about using someone elses money to get hammered..

    General CommentI think it's about more than drinking. I think it's about knowing you're partying your life away when you should be working. In the business, you're paid to live this lifestyle and you're expected to live this kind of lifestyle, but then you're cruelly tapped on the shoulder and reminded that all this was provided to you because you have a talent and you should be selling that talent - doing something with it. You have deadlines and record contracts. I think it's about the stress that comes with knowing your rock star is fizzling out halfway across the sky.
