Used — Let It Bleed lyrics

This poison's my intoxication
I broke the needle off in my skin
Picked the scabs and picked the bleeding
And assumed that it was all in vain
A positive scab that's never healing
Calloused, hit me in the face
A burning bridge that's so misleading
Poison's more potent now with the flame

[Chorus:]
Let it bleed
And take the red for what it's worth, woah
Watch the fire
Fill your lungs with smoke for the last time
If you feel like dying you might wanna sing

The fire department couldn't drown the city
They didn't need to try to wash it clean
And what'd you think
That I was sober
And put me out 'cause I'm a fucking fire
A positive scab that's never healing
I regret that I kept this clean
The most that I could do for you is keep on lying
It's not a lie if you can let it sing

[Chorus:]

You might wanna sing
You might wanna sing
You might wanna sing
Uh huh, sing
You might wanna sing
You might wanna sing
You might wanna sing or scream it

This poison's my intoxication
I broke the needle off in my skin
Picked the scabs and picked the bleeding
And assumed that it was all in vain

Let it bleed
And take the red for what it's worth woah
Watch the fire mamma
Fill your lungs with smoke for the last time
If you feel like dying
If you feel like dying
If you feel like dying you might wanna sing
You might wanna sing
You might wanna sing
You might wanna sing or scream it

[Chorus:]
