Music Monday | Garbage – Bleed Like Me

MUSICMONDAYS

Rules of Music Mondays: Every Monday share a few songs you’ve been enjoying lately.  It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

I can’t remember a time when I didn’t enjoy listening to Shirley Manson and Garbage. It all started with that pink, feathered album released in 1995 with Shirley yelling into the void that she was Only Happy When it Rains and I never looked back. This particular song, Bleed Like Me, not only is a fantastic and powerful song but also has a wonderful video.

 

Garbage – Bleed Like Me

Avalanche is sullen and too thin
She starves herself to rid herself of sin
And the kick is so divine when she sees bones beneath her skin
And she says:
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C’mon baby can you bleed like me?

Chris is all dressed up and acting coy
Painted like a brand new Christmas toy
He’s trying to figure out if he’s a girl or he’s a boy
He says:
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C’mon baby can you bleed like me?

Doodle takes dad’s scissors to her skin
And when she does relief comes setting in
While she hides the scars she’s making underneath her pretty clothes
She sings:
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C’mon baby can you bleed like me?

Therapy is Speedie’s brand new drug
Dancing with the devil’s past has never been too fun
It’s better off than trying to take a bullet from a gun
And she cries:
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C’mon baby can you bleed like me?

JT gets all fucked up in some karaoke bar
After two drinks he’s a loser after three drinks he’s a star
Getting all nostalgic as he sings “I Will Survive”
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C’mon baby can you bleed like me?
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C’mon baby can you bleed like me?

You should see my scars
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
Try to comprehend that which you’ll never comprehend
Try to comprehend that which you’ll never comprehend
Just try to comprehend that which you’ll never comprehend
Try to comprehend that which you’ll never comprehend
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
