Alligator Blood Lyrics

Let's play a game of Russian roulette
I'll Load the gun, you place the bets
Tell me we will make it out alive

Over and over and over again
We play the same old game
Cards kept close to our chest, that's where your secrets kept
So wear...

    Me personally (big bmth fan) I think it means... he's talking to himself being sarcastic with the Russian roulette part. He's telling everyone I'm a fucking psycho watch out. But I don't wanna hurt you either. Still I'm fucking nuts

    The song means when you play around with people or people play with you, it is fun for awhile but then it gets serious and anger forms between you and someone ends up getting hurt.

    The seventh track from There is a Hell…, “Alligator Blood” comes in as one of the heavier tracks on the album. The style of this track is reminiscent of their work on their previous album “Suicide Season”.
    The title of the song comes from a poker term for a player that has no concern for his competition, and is ruthless in taking other players' money. Conversely, someone with “alligator blood” is one that, when losing, barely stays in the game. Within the context of the song, the player of Russian roulette is not concerned with the outcome of the game, as long as he lives, and survives each round by the skin of his teeth.

    Since oli said "Lets play a game of Russian Roulette" (which is a game of chance)...he is saying that some who survive become cocky and have their Alligator Blood show(cold blood)

    My interpretation is that all the evil thing inside his head are coming out and other people around him are seeing it. It almost as if he's saying 'I've had you fooled for so long, so don't try to say you know better because I could beat you.' Meaning that he knows he can face a lot of things after what he's been through and his 'opponents' cannot

    Bad and evil things come through his mind. Later with the part "Now you know,you can go...leave before it's too late" he tells to somebody close to him (girlfriend,best friend,family) that he cannot change and to leave him alone so they don't get hurt

    That he feels socailly alien and that the thought of death is quite appealing 'alligator blood' might refer to the fact that he is so evil it is almost like he has cold blood running through his viens.

    I think this song was about Russian Roulette,and "My Alligator Blood is starting to show" meaning he is feeling suicidal,having played so much of Russian Roulette. My idea of it anyway.
