Message In Blood

Album: Cowboys From Hell (1990)
  • There's a place that I keep deep inside me
    It can trigger my mind
    All along I knew it has been with me
    Since I was just a child

    I just summon power within my soul
    It has given me life, beyond life
    I take blame for my murderous problem
    My signature always reminds

    It's a message in blood
    It's your cryptic warning
    Within the message in blood
    Marks the years of pain,
    And your godforsaken ending to life

    I'm provoked into sick confrontations,
    Brutal time after time,
    Bed of nails, suffocation, life's ending,
    Slay in different designs
    One man's misery is another man's mystery
    No one cares to understand my
    Demented means
    Sticks and stones can break all your brittle bones,
    Epitaph written at your feet

    It's a message in blood
    It's your cryptic warning
    Within the message in blood
    Marks the years of pain,
    And your godforsaken ending to life

    It's a message in blood
    It's your cryptic warning
    Within the message in blood
    Marks the years of pain,
    And your godforsaken ending to life

    Message in blood
    Message in blood
    Message in blood

  • Matthew from Milford, MaWait, what? Who's paying tribute to whom here?!?
  • Joel from Columbia, ScDoes anybody else think that it's a little creepy that Phil Anselmo wears Manson's number + name on his tanktops? That's like Axle of GNR wearing a Manson t-shirt.
  • Gary from Elko, NvCharles Manson actually did use the blood to write messages
  • Ben from Mer, IdFirst off, the song is about how the family left messages in blood at the murder scenes. Second, manson will most likely turn down his parole hearing.
  • Jeff from Dayton, OhYeah but even though his family did it in the eyes of the law i guess its still murder. Hes up for parole in 2007 also...
  • Craig.f from Dublin, Irelandi no that he didnt kill anyone his family did but who incited them into doing it
  • G from G, Nvok id just like to say that manson never wrote or killed anyone in blood members of his "family" did
