The Used – Blood On My Hands

“Straight from your eyes it’s barely me, beautifully so disfigured”

Blood On My Hands is the first song of the album Artwork, which was released in 2009. Just like many opening songs of a cd, this song has a lot of energy as well. It’s from the last cd of The Used before they tried a new music style, so it’s quite hard compared to their new songs.

Album: Artwork

Year: 2009

 

Lyrics

You felt the coldness in my eyes

It’s something I’m not revealing

Though you got used to my disguise

You can’t shake this awful feeling

 

It’s the me that I let you know

Cause’ I’ll never show

I have my reasons

I hate to say that I told you so

But I told you so

Yeahhh!

 

There’s blood on my hands

Like the blood in you

Some things can’t be treated so

Don’t make me

Don’t make me be myself around you

 

Straight from your eyes it’s barely me

Beautifully so disfigured

This other side that you can’t see

Just praying you won’t remember.

 

Feel the pain that I never show

And I hope you know

It’s never healing

I hate to say that I told you so

But I told you so

Yeahhh!

 

There’s blood on my hands

Like the blood in you

Some things can’t be treated so

Don’t make me

Don’t make me be myself around you

 

Straight from your eyes it’s barely me

Beautifully so disfigured (there’s blood)

This other side that you can’t see

Just praying you won’t remember

 

There’s blood

There’s blood

There’s blood

Blood

Blood

 

There’s blood on my hands

Like the blood in you

Some things can’t be treated so

Don’t make me

Don’t make me be myself around you

 

There’s blood on my hands (there’s blood)

Like the blood in you (there’s blood)

Some things can’t be treated so (there’s blood)

Don’t make me (there’s blood)

Don’t make me be myself around you.

 

There’s blood!

 

Is it really that hard for you to believe?

Opinion Justin

This is a very good song by The Used. It has a lot of energy and the lyrics are quite hard as well. I think this song couldn’t have been made better than this. The couplets are, compared to the refrains, quite calm, while the refrains are harder. The balance between them is good. Of course they have better songs, but this one isn’t bad at all.

I like it. I’d like it even more if the refrain was a bit harder.
