Lyrics

Bleedwelllyrics

Ville's handwritten lyrics for "Bleed Well".

Bleed Well

You had demons to kill within you screaming
With a gun loaded with guilt, you opened their eyes
Love preys the living and praises the dead
In the heart of our hearts, by death we were wed.


Bleed well the soul you're about to sell for passion deranged
Kiss and tell, baby we're bleeding well
Bleed well the heart you're about to fail for reasons insane
Kill and tell, baby we're bleeding well .... in Hell


"No love lost under her will", I heard you weeping
And on those words a church was built to keep the pain in
If death is the answer to love's mysteries
Then bleed on my darling to the sound of a dream


Bleed well the soul you're about to sell for passion deranged
Kiss and tell, baby we're bleeding well
Bleed well the heart you're about to fail for reasons insane
Kill and tell, baby we're bleeding well .... oh, yeah


Bleed well the soul you're about to sell for passion deranged
Kiss and tell, baby we're bleeding well
Bleed well the heart you're about to fail for reasons insane
Kill and tell, baby we're bleeding well .... in Hell

Oh, we're dying in Hell..hell...hell..
We're bleeding well in hell


Bleed Well (Acoustic Version)

You had demons to kill within you screaming
With a gun loaded with guilt, you opened their eyes
Love preys the living and praises the dead
In the heart of our hearts, by death we were wed.


Bleed well the soul you're about to sell for passion deranged
Kiss and tell, baby we're bleeding well
Bleed well the heart you're about to fail for reasons insane
Kill and tell, baby we're bleeding well .... oh, in Hell


"No love lost under her will", I heard you screaming
And on those words a church was built to keep the pain in
If death is the answer to love's mysteries
Then bleed on my darling to the sound of a dream


Bleed well the soul you're about to sell for passion deranged
Kiss and tell, baby we're bleeding well
Bleed well the heart you're about to fail for reasons insane
Kill and tell, baby we're bleeding well ....


We start with the circle number one
through two and three
and four and five and six
and oh how we descend to the ninth
the last, there we're judged for what we did
to our sweet venus yeah
we're bleeding well
on all layers of hell...
at least nine or ten
