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

"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
