Bleed me dry, go on and bleed me dry
Take all I have, and leave me to die
See I’m at the end of this parade, and my time has come
To do my best dance and die in the sun

Bleed me dry
Bleed me dry

Bleed me dry, hey let’s go to A.C.
Whatever you want you know it’s all on me
After that let’s walk the streets, you know how I like to feel the night
From the bottom of Pacific Avenue, let’s look up at the light

Bleed me dry
Bleed me dry

Before the alter I want release
Bleed me dry give me peace
Maybe I’m scared by so many I see
So my plan is simple I’m gonna kill it before it kills me

See I know it’s broken logic, from a broken man
But I just beg you to understand….understand

Before the priest, before the cake
Give me a prescription to cure these shakes
Suck me dry and make it real, if I don’t die than I won’t feel
On the boardwalk I remember the old times new, a Picasso painting so real but not true
In a new form in a new frame resurrected in the morning sun I feel my journey has just begun

Before the alter
After the feast
Don’t you know I’ll be ready
I’ll have peace

So bleed me dry, bleed me dry, bleed me dry, bleed me dry

Make me over I wanna be reborn again
