If You Want Blood (You've Got It) Lyrics

It's criminal
There ought to be a law
There ought to be a whole lot more
You get nothing for nothing
Tell me who can you trust
We got what you want
And you got the lust
If you want blood, you got it
If you want blood,...

    Angus Bon and Malcolm got the idea for this song when they were at a concert and the concert wasn't very good and the singer got up to the stage and said " What do you want fuckin blood " and they thought that was a good title for the song but they changed it a lil bit !

    Iguess it is about people and how limited they are.
    being free and joyfull in a society filled with stuck ups and people following imaginary meaningless rules with no benefits sometimes makes you feel like a free wild animal in a human zoo were they throw shit at you(the shit being there judgments and their prisoning stuped ideas and social authority.
    how it is a shame that people need "cages" and laws so they could trust and deal with eachother.
    and this society didn't give him any chance right from the beginning

    It's a song about provocation, betrayal and fighting back. If someone I trusted stabbed me in the back, damn right.. if you want blood, you got it!!

    If you want blood is a call to Arms and a Line in the sand. The boys are saying
    “We are not here to fight, we are just here to have a good time but (an important but) if if you’re not gonna let us have a good time then Yes “you better believe it” we are here to fight.

    It's about Jesus. He gave his blood to save the world. They are saying if it's blood that you want here is ours for satan.
