"Blood Of The Scribe" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
All of this comes crashing down
Cornerstone's gone
Sleepless
Hopeless
No end in sight

Ink well has run dry, fill it with blood of the scribe
Rest comes easy to the guiltless
The vampire laments as he prays for the sun
Doom, despair, tragedy are the tools of the trade

Cut to the bone
Rob the grave
Unearth the stone
Lay to waste
Defile the tome
Rip the page
Strip mine the vein
Lay to waste
Frayed at the edge
Flat lined
The anvil cracks The hammer
Relentlessly comes down
A new pariah is born

Cut to the bone
Rob the grave
Unearth the stone
Lay to waste
Defile the tome
Rip the page
Strip mine the vein
Lay to waste

Chastisement lays you down to sleep, tucks you in with bloody kisses
Gifts of nightmares bittersweet

Type A negative shuts me down
Catch phrase will be the death of me
Is this not what you came to see?
What, are you not entertained?

Climb the walls 'til nails bleed
Rip the hair, tear the seams
Break the glass
Head in hands
Bell tolls endlessly
No end in sight

    General Commentthis is one of my favorites too jhoo. so i'll make a comment.

    first, egghead, not all blood means type-o. lots of songs talk about blood. try finding a true metal or hardcore album that never uses the word blood.

    I love the vampire preys for your soul pun.

    and this song is about depression and its awesome. I love the deviations from politics in Ashes of the Wake

    General CommentI think this is yet another song about the politics that goes on in America."Rest comes easy to the guiltless" the head leaders can lie and manipulate the public and knowing its wrong they can still sleep at night no caring about it."Doom, despair, tragedy are the tools of the trade" This is what are stupid ass fucking president use to get us to agree to go to war in iraq."rob the grave" the government will rob or do anything to hide the truth. even denying that someone existed.

    General CommentWhy does everyone think the only thing Lamb of God write about is politics?
    Yeah, sure, we all hate Bush, get over it.

    I'd say this one is about depression for sure, MAYBE about suicide.

    "Ink well has run dry, fill it with blood of the scribe"
    "Cut to the bone"
    - And the rest of the lyrics sort of swing that way, some way or another, I think mostly, about making mistakes, the reason.
