"Blood/Hidden track" as written by and Frank Iero Bob Bryar....
Well they encourage your complete cooperation
Send you roses when they think you need to smile
I can't control myself because I don't know how,
And they love me for it honestly, I'll be here for a while

So give them blood, blood, gallons of the stuff
Give them all that they can drink and it will never be enough
So give them blood, blood, blood
Grab a glass because there's going to be a flood

A celebrated man amongst the gurneys
They can fix me proper with a bit of luck
The doctors and the nurses they adore me so,
But it's really quite alarming cause I'm such an awful fuck (oh thank you)

I gave you blood, blood, gallons of the stuff,
I gave you all that you can drink and it has never been enough
I gave you blood, blood, blood,
I'm the kind of human wreckage that you love

    Song MeaningI feel the first two lines are addressing the general regime of everyday life we experience and the need for happiness and sometimes excessive optimism during 'bad times' that is projected upon us within an institution-such as work.
    It then goes on to show how Gerard is not conforming to (what seems to be) 'society's rules'- perhaps due to some kind of mental disorder where he is unable to completely control/gather himself for the good of others.
    After all, that usually is the reason for this false sense of 'everything is going to be ok' in regard to the workplace/government- perhaps even amongst friends ect... to 'save face'- with the person still feeling hurt and upset in their own time as they feel they can't within the 'outside world.'
    The next lines go on to show how he has been sent to a mental institution, as he talks about the nurses who care for him embracing his traits, as opposed to society in general who discouraged them. Due to this, he feels as if treated for his mental disorder in order to help him conform to society will be halted.
    The chorus then goes on to show how their attempts at 'treating him' are futile via either the actual extraction of blood or the more likely metaphorical extraction of information via counselling represented as blood (as he is 'opening up' to them)-
    with the 'all that they can drink' line meaning all that they can handle of his mentality within each session, therefore no matter how much he gives/shares- it 'will never be enough.'
    He then illustrates how he feels as if this treatment is in fact making him worse with the line 'grab a glass because there's going to be a flood'- as soon all of the corruption within his mind due to the disorder will rise to the surface, meaning this could also now refer to actual blood shed (his or others.)
    The first line of the last verse shows how he has been involved in blood shed and injury many times before (perhaps due to himself)- confirmed by the following line, displaying how he is well acquainted with the doctors and nurses.
    He then displays sanity and self-awareness in the next line, outlining how others in the rest of society (including himself) would regard him with disgust- as appose to the nurses within the mental institution (probably as he is a good and loveable character compared to others within it)- he is the 'kind of human wreckages that you love!' ;D
