Ok I'll try. Actually, I wrote this on Feb. 3rd 1997. The freaky thing is, read the chorus and some of the words.
I was diagnosed with cancer 2 days after I jotted down the chorus :shock:
Kinda wierd when you read it LOL...clean now though :D
Some verses were added later.
I posted the song without lyrics a while back in originals.
I would post it if someone wanted.
I would love to hear someone add the vox to the song. I suck singing LOL ...Hope you like it.

Let It Bleed

When I close my eyes
It's clear to see
I can't run and hide
From what is haunting me

Running from my fears
To try and ease the pain
Just like I've done for years
With only me to blame

Chorus:
Tear it open and let it bleed
It hurts like hell but it's what I need
To keep these demons from killing me
I'm dying inside, please set me free

Voices in my head
Those freewheeling demons
On my soul they've fed
Manipulating my feelings

In the monsters grip
Swinging from the noose
Not gonna take this trip
But I can't cut loose

Chorus:
Tear it open and let it bleed
It hurts like hell but it's what I need
To keep these demons from killing me
I'm dying inside, please set me free

SOLO

Chorus Repeat:
Tear it open and let it bleed
It hurts like hell but it's what I need
To keep these demons from killing me
I'm dying inside, please set me free

Bound in chains, what is my crime
The cancer feeds consuming me
Sinking in the sands of time
Gasping for breath as you call to me

In the distance I can hear your voice
As you scream crying out for me
It pulls me down seems I have no choice
Break these chains and set me free

Chorus:
Tear it open and let it bleed
It hurts like hell but it's what I need
To keep these demons from killing me
I'm dying inside, please set me free

pulling no punches there Flying V - very strong stuff indeed. I reckon no matter how you feel about your singing - this is far too personal a song to interpret IMO. This is about you and your experiences. It is pretty harrowing stuff too. Well written, very lucid :thumb:
