Bleed to Live | Lyrics

greyscale-3

It’s been some time

Since I grabbed my guitar and played

Not long ago

I didn’t know if I’d be here today

The blood in my veins

Is like a curse, yet it blesses me

I put up a fight

But now I’ve learned just to let it be


I learned that day

That I will never be the same

It’s like they say

That there’s no gain without some pain

There’s no cure

There’s no chance for a better way

And now I know

I’ve got to bleed just to live today


Push the needle in

Get your insulin

A cushion for the pen


Fallen to your knees

Begging pretty please

Fuck this damn disease


It just goes to show

That pain is what you know

Cause sugar is your foe


If you want to live

Your freedom’s what you give

You’ve got to bleed to live


Not long ago

I didn’t know if I’d be here to say

That now I know

I’ve got to bleed just to live today
