I'm Still Bleeding

40 Below Summer 2006

Where is the reason? Where is the hope?
When all your life you're left hangin' from a rope
Can I be saved? Can I be cut loose?
Arms tied to my side swingin' from this noose

Now it's getting heavy
Now it's suffocating
Cauterize my wounds
But I'm still bleeding

I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding

And I pulled you closer for a sense of relief
I've been crucified for all my beliefs
As I take this shotgun and put it in my mouth
Set it to righten my sorrows and blast all the pain out

Now it pulls me under
Now the pain it breeds
To stitch me closed
But I still bleed

I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding

Open your eyes, lead me inside
And fall on a landslide, inside my hindsight
And fall on a landslide, inside my hindsight

I'm still bleeding
Won't you stitch me closed? Don't ya know
I'm still bleeding from this open hole?
I'm still bleeding from this open hole

I'm still bleeding, I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding, I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding, I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding, I'm still bleeding

Stitch me closed 'cause don't ya know
I'm still bleeding, I'm still bleeding?
I'm still bleeding, I'm still bleeding
Bleeding, bleeding, bleeding, bleeding
