Bleed Like Me

  • Avalanche is sullen and too thin
    She starves herself to rid herself of sin
    And the kick is so divine when she sees bones beneath her skin
    And she says:
    Hey baby can you bleed like me?
    C'mon baby can you bleed like me

    Chrissie's all dressed up and acting coy
    Painted like a brand new Christmas toy
    He's trying to figure out if he's a girl or he's a boy
    He says:
    Hey baby can you bleed like me?
    C'mon baby can you bleed like me

    Doodle takes dad's scissors to her skin
    And when she does relief comes setting in
    While she hides the scars she's making underneath her pretty clothes
    She sings:
    Hey baby can you bleed like me?
    C'mon baby can you bleed like me

    Therapy is speedie's brand new drug
    Dancing with the devil's past has never been too fun
    It's better off than trying to take a bullet from a gun
    And she cries:
    Hey baby can you bleed like me?
    C'mon baby can you bleed like me

    It's gets all fucked up in some karaoke bar
    After two drinks he's a loser after three drinks he's a star
    Getting all nostalgic as he sings 'I will survive'
    Hey baby can you bleed like me?
    C'mon baby can you bleed like me

    You should see my scars
    You should see my scars
    You should see my scars
    You should see my scars
    And try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend Writer/s: BRYAN DAVID VIG, DOUGLAS ELWIN ERICKSON, SHIRLEY ANN MANSON, STEVE W. MARKER
