I'm feeling crossed
I take it inside
Burn up the pain
My thoughts are strange
Just like the things
I used to love
Just like the tree that fell
I heard it
If art is still inside
I feel it

I wanna bleed
Show the world all that I have inside
I wanna scream
Let the blood flow that keeps me alive

Take all these strings
They call my veins
Wrap them around
Every fucking thing

Presence of people
Not for me
Well I must remain in tune
My love is music
I will marry melody

I wanna bleed
Show the world all that I have inside
I wanna scream
Let the blood flow that keeps me alive

Won't you let me take you
For a ride
You can stop the world
Try to change my mind
Won't you let me show you
How it feels
You can stop the world
But you won't change me

I need music
I need music
I need music to set me free
To let me bleed

    Tortured soul, who doesn't quite fit anywhere. Reflecting inward on what's important. How to get their self 'heard'. To be who they are, regardless.

    My second favorite song. I have to agree, no matter what material possessions I have, I'll always have music. Without it, shit I'd probably be in juvie by now. This song kind of depicts who I am, in the sense that as much as people try to change who I am or what I stand for, my passion for music, will never change.

    This is a beautiful song.. to all the musicians and to all those that believe music is the key to happiness.. keeps you living.. this is the song that proves it.. if it wasn't for music I'd be sooo dead right now.. its all thanx to Scooter Ward and his beautiful lyrics that I'm not dead.. its all about the music.. never the money.. :)
