about

Constructed between 2000 and 2003, Bleed was conceived and written as a "concept album". Drifting somewhere between Camus' "The Rebel", Orwell's "1984", the Velvet Underground, and 1960's TV series "the Prisoner".

about

Razorblade Monalisa Sacramento, California

Inspired largely by 80's post-punk, Razorblade Monalisa has come back from the dead more often than many of its forebears in its ten-year-long career. The band blends the styles of yesteryear into an alternately dark, dreamy, and ferocious sound injected with lyrical metaphor that references works of science fiction and horror. ... more

Track Name: White Heat
White light
Burning thro the moth in flame
White heat
Just enough to leave the stain
White light
Oh my lord i knew what was wrong
White heat
Just enough to send it alight

We are with you now

White light
Frozen stones underneath her back
White heat
Freeze your skin and bleed the bad
White light
White light shining all that we are
White heat
White heat to make it alright

We are with you now
Track Name: Dead in the Springtime
I’m not here
I’m alone
I’m in trouble
I am just the flesh gone numb

I’m seeing it
I’m feeling it
I’m breathing it
I just want to shoot the sun

I’m unreal
I’m a clone
I’m a vessel
I am what you can not bear

I’m your lover
I’m a razor
I’m a fast kill
The only one who is aware

Dead in the springtime
Dead in the year one
Dead in the springtime
Dead in the warm sun

Dead in the springtime
Dead in the year one
Dead in the springtime
Dead in the warm sun

Dead in the springtime
Dead in the year one
Dead in the springtime
Dead in the warm sun

How long can you go on before you've betrayed everything you are?
And in the end, does it even matter?
Track Name: Got a Girl
I got a girl - she’s just seventeen
All dressed in black and PVC
I got a girl - she knows how to behave
You give her money, she’ll be your slave

I got a girl - she likes to play with knives
She got a vicious laugh and two gray eyes
I got a girl - she’s happy when it rains
She's got a jealous heart and this is what she says…

Honey you better not fuck around on me
Honey you better not fuck around on me

Honey you better not fuck around on me
Honey you better not fuck around on me

I got a girl - she’s just seventeen
All dressed in black and PVC
I got a girl - she wants to be a star
Give her what she wants - break her heart

I got a girl - she only five foot tall
She loves her daddy and that is all
I got a girl - she’s happy when it rains
She's got a wicked heart and this is what she says…

Honey you better not fuck around on me
Honey you better not fuck around on me
Fuck around on me
Fuck around on me
Track Name: New Skin
Rip it out
(It’s been here for so long)
Cut it out
(This lump of shit inside my chest)
Carve it up
(Like fat pigs head on butchers block)
Break it up
(There is nothing left to keep it whole)

It’s been so long
I’m asking for it
I’m slit and ready
For the new skin

Put it on
(This patchwork of thread and skin)
Slip it on
(Though the cancer still remains)
Underneath
(Nothing’s healed and nothing changed)
The blackest hole
(Is all that’s left inside of me)

It’s been so long
I’m praying for it
I’m slit and ready
For the new skin
Track Name: Pain Reliever
Walking around with no thought in my head
Touching the places where I felt less dead
Looking for a trace of you
To pull me out of this
Wasting my time in this hell
Waiting for a sign you still care
Nothing is what I kept from you
Is what is left of you

Wishing I could still touch your heart
Groping for the heaven that was there in the start
Hoping for a glimpse of you
To make sense of all this
Ruined, raped and torn apart
Conditioned to live this dead alive
I wonder if I knew you at all
Ever knew you at all
Track Name: Atom Bomb
I'm gonna crawl inside your bones
(Feel so much better)
I'm gonna claw your skin like meat
(Feels slow forever)

I'm in your head
Your atom bomb

I'm gonna rip your insides apart
(You're going nowhere)
I'm gonna slit your smile and see
(Are you really in there)

I'm in your head
Your atom bomb

When your dead, you're just like me
When your dead, you're just like me
When your dead, you're just like me
When your dead, you're just like me

Don't let me out
Track Name: A.I.M.
End of the dark days
End of the dreams of skin
End of the loss and the empty sky
End of the dreams of him

I can't breathe anymore
Wasted and waiting on the floor
I can't breathe at all
Left me for dead, but i want more

Culture of apathy
Sanitized display of dead
Youth is a fiction
For the wrinkled overfed

Pain Reliever
Pain Reliever
Pain Reliever

Culture alienation
Drugged into a way of life
Babies as accessories
A generation of crippled lives

Abortion is mercy
Pain Reliever
Pain Reliever
Pain Reliever
Track Name: Bleed
You look good in that white dress
Just like Norma-Jean
You look good in that white dress
Oh so virgin clean
You look good in that white dress
I never get enough
You look good in that white dress
And I feel the love

I wanna fuck you
I wanna make you bleed

You look good in that white dress
Just like Magdaline
You look good in that white dress
It makes me want to sing
You look good in that white dress
Angeline and bright
You look good in that white dress
And I see the light

I want to fuck you
I want to make you bleed
And bleed
Track Name: Thirteen
End of the dark days
End of the dreams of skin
End of the loss and the empty sky
End of the love of HIM

Faith
Hope
Love

End of the virgin in white
End of throwing sticks in streams
End of warm summer days
End of the last goodbye
End of shivering and hate
End of the movement of fear
End of washing away the blood
End of days of waiting for

Faith
Hope
Love
Death
Track Name: The Captive
I'm scared
I'm skin and bones
Hissing like a cat in a cage
I'm never alone

I'm ashamed
Didn't fight at all
Pacing my kingdom of steel
Is all I've ever known

Captive
Feed me enough just to keep me alive
Captive
Too weak to run, too young to die

Chasing my tail
Paws slit bleeding
Drowning for a drink - my inmate
Is never alone

At night I yowl
At night I scream
Useless when I can't even breathe
Will I never be free

Captive
Feed me enough just to keep me alive
Captive
Too weak to run, too young to die
