You Don't Bleed For Me

Album: Disarm the Descent (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds an angry Jesse Leach railing against two-faced authorities and institutions. "That's a pretty pissed off song," he told Artist Direct. "I had personal issues in mind but also corrupt government and the hypocrisy of organized religion. You're in that state of mind where you're so angry and there's nothing you can do about it. You're tired of people speaking for you and pretending like they know where you're coming from. That's pretty much it. It's the anger of people being hypocritical and betraying."
