Systematically layered beneath the understated
Borderland calling me home
Curiousity has taken it's toll
Empathetic - into the darkness I fall alone
Hear what you say when you whisper the truth of your lies
I wanna fly over falling stars
How I love breathing into this lifelessness
Reminds me I can't paint like God
Say no more
Carve me a smile, make it deep and wide and mortal
Drain my eyes 'til the sky goes pop
Bleeding out in my own idolatry for you
My adoration dripping drop by drop by drop
Can't get enough symphony in her eyes to eden
Enter me my last chance for hope
Had a god but I fucked her all the way...
Because she couldn't feel what I wrote
Say no more
I've heard enough to know

Do you want to bleed the sky?
You better say goodnight tonight

Bleed the sky tonight say goodnight tonight,
I've heard enough to know

I wanna bleed the sky

Make when we bring the Reaper
Sleepin' in the bloodshot eyes
Because I'm down with the sun
And when it keeps you high
Well then forget it - because we're gonna' pop this quiz
When I bleed the sky tonight say goodnight
No more life to live

say no more

    Yea reveille! oh wait NO. Yea lets have a sick guitar riff that sounds like every other riff that they and other bands like them have, and SCREAM! AAAAAAAAAAAAAGGHHHHHHHH! Hey i can make songs like them. I go down to mexico drink a BIIIG glass of water, then record myself on the toilet that night, and scream as it comes out. BAM reveille song! Bleed the sky is about this. The sky is the rain which gets into the water, and then he bleeds from his ass and goes "AAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!"

    Heh, GhostWishing, if you were "the singer", wouldn't you refer to yourself as something other than "the singer", also, wouldn't you mention the fact that the correct lyrics are on your website?

    This song is sometimes scary, but it is really good though.

Step
Ministry
Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
