Bleed
Written by Jeremiah Bligen

Verse 1:
This struggle,
Been real, weight on my back,
raised in the dirt,
mama working 24,
still all this life we aint never had jack
fox on my tail, (Jack Bauer is the lead character from show 24, shown on fox),
it seems that he's ahead,
am I really chasing him?
this war in my head.
so sour,
trying to get past to the sweet, (Warheads is a candy that starts off sour but gets sweet)
pass on seats in heat just to stand on my knees,
Lord!
Its always something,
If it aint the shower,
its the stove or the oven,
cant dispose of the trash,
cause the water turned off,
were sunk, trying to get up,
but this world keeps flushing.
I’m in this car, mothers in an ambulance,
feels like a Hurst
this cant be happenstance,
blood vessels burst,
4 years after daddy passed?
the very same way?
this would be even worse…
Oh my lord
took care of others,
all of her life, (My mother was an Nurses assistant at a nursing home and in home caretaker)
now she laid up, with a shut left eye,
weak on the right, sugar all over,
pressure sky high, Losing her mind,
WHAT? 5 strokes?!
woman of faith here, ship sailed straight,
no, not perfect, yet stood firm,
foundation was thrashed by waves,
talked about, betrayed, yet stayed,
by Grace - saved.
lord I know we all have cups,
Every man must sip, still this seems shot,
not shocked - just hurt to see her go through,
more.
yeah, I am aware that no man’s immune,
but lord I feel this, though the spirits in tune,
this flesh is weak, I seek comfort in you.
mind my mind, mine for thines, assorted truth
find divine, in spite, of grime, search for you
Lord!
theres need, theres pain, its dark,
fighting to stand, barely can walk,
tide rising high on multiple fronts,
Lord be my strength, help me bear this Cross.

Hook 1:
Lord I'm Calling
because I need you to strengthen me,
I am worn out from the brawling,
I'm fighting yet, the tension gleans,
I’m in a war for my mind,
and my might, it wont succeed,
we are hurting, world is fallen, rotten,
Lord please bring relief,
You have all power, Father,
so this hour,
I submit my sight,
I need you to be my eyes,
Hear me as I Cry.

Verse 2:
This Struggle, Been Real,
Recycle (Bin) that tape (Reel),
Weight on my back,
raised in this dirt,
wrapped in a wreck full of hex,
even my breath,
reeks from the taint.
Wait,
Hold On, Sat high, looked low,
Before there was even a low, to look on,
Way before, before it all came,
This death certificate was shook on.
See (C) - by me all came to be (B),
Alpha (A). Power Ranged from 3., Show Power Rangers had a robot assistant named Alpha , 3-Godhead)/
Thee and we,
Balanced, in mind, everything in its prime, aligned.
in the cool of the day,/
relationship abided, in came that snake,
jake, /
Stone cold, and Stunned,
All of creation with hate, (Stone Cold is a wrestler who began his iconic rise to fame by mocking John 3:16, attacking his opponent, Jake the Snake Roberts, who quoted scriptures)
Wait

Pride polluted and tarnished perfection.
Injected doubt broke trust with a question,
Calmly Convoluted Commands to Reject it,
Neglected stout hope lust insurrected,
Affections reroute to self and Infection sprouts,
Will Curse all with a sentence
Disobedience altered Direction.
Now everything is fallen, dejected,
A foul, to be called, an ejection,
upon all, the products, defected
Dark overall, now its all’s this complexion
Call disconnected
Now there’s a Dial Tone.
-
Love mourns.
How’s that for injustice?
Being Crushed,
For those who crushed us,
By those who crushed us,
Knowing they wouldn’t love us.
Yet to reconnect to the still born.
elect, to interject his will, born,
In a shack, where slop lays, and ills swarm,
I’ll hang, blood drenched, my skin torn.
I’ll Stand in-between,
To get you to the source (God),
take the whole magazine (taking all the bullets, the wrath).
While My mother watches,
So your mother can walk in,
Give up the Casper (Ghost),
To provide, everything.
I’ll (Jesus) Bleed.

Hook 2a:
As you sit behind that wheel,
war inside you cry,
broken hearted, humbled, weary,
tired of this life,
know your burdens I have carried,
let my yoke reside,
foundations of the earth,
I had you in mind. so I

Bleed,
to restore this from its fallen state,
Bleed.
Free your mind and cover you with Grace,
Bleed.
In Forever I have made a place,
There’s now Power, you can overcome,
When Ravens Cry Out My Name, I’ll

Bridge:
Be Every thing you need,
joy, comfort, wisdom, peace,
resource, refuge, strength, indeed,
oh when you call on me I’ll.
dont be anxious or worry, I'll be,
your sound mind, power, relief,
fear not son, I'm all that you need,
oh when you call on me.

Hook 2b
Bleed,
to restore this from its fallen state,
Bleed.
Free your mind and cover you with Grace,
Bleed.
In Forever I have made a place,
There’s now Power, you can overcome,
When Ravens Cry Out My Name, I’ll

Hook 1b:
I’m in a war for my mind,
and my might, it wont succeed,
we are hurting, world is fallen, rotten,
Lord please bring relief,
You have all power, Father,
so this hour,
I submit my sight,
I need you to be my eyes,
Hear me as I Cry.
