about

Jed:
I'm starting to understand just how little artistry is involved in musical success. This is a business of cold craft and hackwork. And God forbid you should lay something of yourself on the table, because the VIPs will chop it right off.

My songs flow from my experiences, my life...they weave through my personal history like blood through my body. Repackaging an artist's vision for easy popular consumption is like sucking out and selling someone's blood.

lyrics

Blood
Liquid light
Coat your skin
Slippery skin
Covered
Blood
Cut the cord
Rinse it down
Slap the back
Breathing
Blood
On your palm
On your knee
Through the torn
Cotton
Blood
From your arm
Needle tip
Look away
Stinging
Blood
Soaking gauze
Missing tooth
Under your
Pillow
Blood
Busted lip
Burning ribs
Dusty jeans
Fumble
Blood
On the screen
Slash and scream
Horror
Sleepover
Blood
Flowing through
Every tick
Of a life
Yeah

Blood in a bead on the tips of our fingers
Mix until we are brothers
Now we're in this together
Can't take it back, ever

Blood
Shocking spill
Marking time
For the new
Woman
Blood
On the sheets
Afterglow
Of a first
Passion
Blood
Welling deep
Running free
Far from home
Panic
Blood
Busted lip
Burning ribs
Dusty jeans
Honor
Blood
Underpaid
Flushing cheek
Salty sweat
Wasted
Blood
Slow and thick
Tiny veins
Squeezing tight
Pressure
Blood
On the knee
Of a child
Steady voice
Comfort
Blood
Flowing through
Every tick
Of a life

Listen to it rush
Listen to the sound
Listen in the dark
When there's no one around

Blood in a bead on the tips of our fingers
Mix until we are brothers
Now we're in this together
Can't take it back, ever

Blood in my throat
On my tongue
On my fingers
Sop it up and collect it
Let them bottle and sell it
Now you're listening to it, yeah
This is my blood.
