Bleed On Me


Is the day bleeding on your dirty gold

To the bank
To the money lender
To pay for the money
The bank didn't have

To the market
For the oil
For the wine
That God said was mine
For the price He paid

The day He bled on me
As I did the things
Which were more
Than I thought
And much less
Than I expected

The day bled on me
Is it bleeding on you too
Bloody dirty gold

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
