Bleed Black


I am exploring the inside. I find it desolate. I do implore these confines now as they penetrate, "recreate me." I'm hovering throughout time. I crumble in these days. I crumble, cannot, I cannot find reflection in these days. If you listen, (listen, listen) listen close, beat-by-beat, you can hear when a heart stops. I saved the pieces when it broke and ground them all to dust. I am destroyed by the inside. I disassociate. I hope to destroy the ouside. It will alleviate and elevate me. Like water flowing into lungs, I'm flowing through these days. Like morphine drops throiugh, through deadened veins I'm numbing in these days. beat-by-beat, you can hear when a heart stops. I saved the pieces when it broke and ground them all to dust. I know what died that night. It can never be brought back to life once again,I know. I know what died that night. It can never be brought back to life once again,I know. I know I died that night and I'll never be brought back to life. Once again, I know. I know I died that night and I'll never be brought back to life. Once again, I know. If you listen, (listen, listen) listen close, beat-by-beat, you can hear when a heart stops. I saved the pieces when it broke and ground them all to dust. If you listen, (listen, listen) listen close, beat-by-beat, you can hear when a heart stops. I saved the pieces when it broke and ground them all to dust

I think....and this might sound sick...but I believe this is about him being raped and its about him dealing with it and how he feels he talks about how penetration recreated him and the title....some my find me crazy look at the lyrics and judge for yourself

Ok, I think you're interpretation is right, I think he DID get raped, but the song is about more than just getting raped and dealing with it, there it way more to the song, so first, the lyrics: I am exploring the inside, I find it desolate. I do implore these confines now as they penetrate, "recreate me." -Ok it may not seam like a lot now, but we can get a lot out these two sentences. First of all, he says he is "exploring the inside", that means he is reflecting back on his life. Next he finds it "desolate", or deserted, however you want to put it. So now we have him reflecting back on his life, and he finds something deserted. Now he says "I do implore these confines", or in other words I do plead on these boundaries. "now as they penetrate recreate me". Now he uses the word "penetrate" which means it left a hole in him. So now we have he went through something (he does not yet reveal what he went through), and the hole it left in him recreated him. I'm hovering through out time. I crumble in these days. I crumble, cannot, I cannot find reflection in these days. -Now all he is basically saying is as he is reflecting back on his life, he can't find anything good to reflect on because of the hole this situation left in him, so he crumbles. If you listen, listen close, beat-by-beat, you can hear when a heart stops. _Now this, I am not quite sure what it means, it could mean anything, but I think it means his heart stopped after the situation, and he heard it stop, but that is just my theory. I saved the pieces when it broke and ground them all to dust. -Now this is, again, the hole left in him, he saved the pieces, which means he remembers what happened. and ground them all to dust...that , once again, I am not quite sure, but my theory here is that he tried to forget the situation, but all that did was shrink him even more. I am destroyed by the inside. I disassociate. I hope to destroy the outside. It will alleviate and elevate me. -Ok now he is saying is that the situation (which still hasn't been revealed yet) has destroyed him, and made him hope to die. Then he would be "alleviated" (which means lightened) and "elevated". Like water flowing into lungs, I'm flowing through these days. As morphine tears through deadened veins I'm numbing in these days. -Now this is just about him barely getting through life after the situation.---now notice we are almost through the song and it has not yet been revealed what happened? Well, the last couple lines makes it pretty obvious.--- I know what died that night. It can never be brought back to life once again, I know. I know I died that night and I'll never be brought back to life. Once again, I know. -This is without a doubt, the deepest part of the song! I know it is only a couple of lines, but it really says a lot about how davey feels and makes is obvious what happened to davey. Ok first he says "i know what died that night." ok, that is enough to kinda get what happened. I dont think he is talking about any creature dying, I think he means his life there. And it will never be the same again. I think right there you can tell he was raped!! And then he goes on and says, "I know I died that night, and I'll never be brought back to life once again." now that is not a physical death he is talking about, but a death on the inside, that hole, that penetration, that recreated his life in such a horrible way!! Now this was probably one of the hardest afi songs to interpret, but really listen to the words and see what you think.
