"Bruises" as written by and David/donegan Draiman....
Please leave me alone
For I can not let this go
It's the lie that I live
Everything that I give

Shut the fuck up

Please tell me that I have grown
For I have bruises left to show
And I fall in between everything

Let me see
Come on, get up
Let me see your bruises

'Cause I will never let you know
'Cause I will never let you go
Please leave me alone

Let me see, let me see, let me see
Come on, get up
Let me see your bruises

    General CommentI think it's about how everyone has some kind of problem (or are damaged, you know what I mean). He seems to mention that he has his own problems at first, and that he's trying to heal somehow. Then, after all that, asks to "see your bruises", possibly meaning that since he's shared his stories he's hoping that this woman (well, maybe it's a women) will reciprocate or something. Okay, maybe this doesn't make sense but it's a guess, actually. I'm probably wrong but meh...it's all good.

    General CommentGreat song to relieve agression; sounds like a fightin song. sounds like he's been picked on and beaten up and given sh!t by some1 ('Please leave me alone, for I have bruises left to show'). Over time this abuse has messed him up with his confidence and esteem, and up till now he's just let it pass 'the lie that i live, everything that I give'.

    But now he's snapped 'STFU' and fought back. 'Come on get up, lemme see ur bruises' - he's beaten him down, and is saying get up for more, i wanna see ur bruises - sweet revenga.

    Brilliant song anyway. Is the rest of Unloco any good? this is the only one I've heard

    General CommentI see this as a song about internal conflict.
    In the beginning, he's like singing slowly and complaining. "Please, leave me alone, for I cannot let this go." But then the other side of him snaps, screaming "Shut the fuck up". The next verse follows the same format, except he doesn't scream at himself this time. Instead he challenges the whining side of him. "Come on, get up, let me see your bruises". He's like taunting himself. Obviously, he went through some tough times and he wants to show proof of how fucked up he is, but at the same time, he's attacking himself for even thinking about complaining.
