lmao i'm glad other people heard "dude i'm bleeding! wait, i'm not". Hahaha when I was a little kid (elementary), I used to think it said that. honestly. When i found out the real lyrics, i felt really retarded...but now i feel a little less stupid, seeing as how others heard that also. but back then, i felt kind of proud for finally 'understanding' some AFI lyrics (i could not understand a single thing the singer ever said [whined] aside from this). i still like to listen to AFI on occasion, for nostalgia. it always reminds me of going to my dads house back in the day...early-mid 2000s.. but i always hated going there. Why am i typing all this on a last.fm shout box at 3 AM..? i should really find something better to do.
A friend of mine has tat of a hand crushing a bleeding heart and it says "Strength through wounding" at the top then at the bottom "Through our bleeding we are one" unfortunately this was shortly after the band lost it's edge.
