Let it Bleed

Don’t you cry

Keep it inside and far from prying eyes

Don’t concede

Take the dream, your love, your care, and all the power in your desire

And just let it bleed

Solitary soldiers

Fathers, sons and brothers

One silent foxhole partner takes it for another

Don’t grieve the walking wounded

The generations march in time

Solitary soldiers

Born of blood and wine

Don’t believe

Don’t ask for truth, or compassion, or resolution

Be not the need

On a dry stream bed in summer sun, lay down your arms, and your body

And just bleed


Solitary soldiers

Fathers, sons and brothers




This very personal song is about surrender — about loneliness and being a man. Keep your mouth shut and just keep walking.
