bleed like me

i absolutely loved beautiful garbage so i thought i wouldn't like bleed like me as much. the first few tracks are reminiscent of vintage garbage circa 90's but this track here is definitely a keeper. shirley manson (vocals) used to be a slasher so she really knows what she's saying here. it's such a shame my copy is pirated. i didn't get to see the cd-rom track and the video. but it's okay since i don't like the new single (why do you love me) that much.

anyways, back to this song i like. it's rare that i find a song that i can really relate to. this isn't just barnum effect (ha ha... finally asked argee what it was called), this shit's really mine. it's so nice that people like shirley manson and i share a slashing tendency. i really feel like she'd understand. it takes one to know one, right. it's just that everywhere i go, all these non-slashers look down on me for being weak or stupid or wasteful of life but it's like, you think it's easy to hurt myself? you think it's easy living like this? try a day, nay an hour in my life and see what it's like. hey baby, can you bleed like me?

Bleed Like Me
Garbage

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

jt 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
