You Must Be Bleeding Under Your Eyelids

Album: The Great Depression (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Christian Lindskog said of this song in jesusfreakhideout.com: "I have just heard about a disease where girls are standing in front of the mirror and staring at themselves for hours. They get lost and paralyzed inside that image. It makes me so sad to see these beautiful women hating themselves because they don't fit some imaginary mold. I guess to see themselves that way they must be bleeding under their eyelids." >>
