Hand of Blood Lyrics

There goes my valentine again
Soaked in red for what she said
And now shes gone

Oh my god have i done it again
theres a pulse and its deafening.
I can't help what i hear in my head
it's the switch that i flick (when she says)...

    ok so, "there goes my valentine... soaked in red for what she said"
    so his girlfriend upset him so he got mad and hit her, then he's guilty cos he's done it before, and he's hyped up from it "oh my god have i done it again? theres a pulse and its deafening" but the anger is overwhelming "i can't help what i hear in my head, it's a switch that when he says" and with just one spark he ignites. then the chorus bit is him saying that people are turning there backs on him and "i saw you look away, is what you've seen too much to take" but they don't see that he's got a problem "or are you blind and seeing nothing" and some people are scared of him, "i saw you run away" but he's asking if they're scared of him or if they don't want to help him "or are you scared of being nothing?" then the second verse he's feeling more guilty, and he just doesn't understand why it's happening and blames himself and he's worried "theres a stain on my hand and its red, oh my god am i losing it?" then he's saying that its hard and he doesn't have the self control to help himself, and he needs other peoples help before it happens again (he lashes out) "i can't help what i've done or i've said, it's the button i push when he says" then the pre chorus bit he's explaining how his anger problem is destroying him, and it's breaking his heart cos he hurt his girlfriend "hand of blood i don't wanna feel my heart is breaking" and the hand of blood reminds him of it "hand of blood i don't wanna see my life is burning" and its just ruining his life then the beatdown where he's like "nooooooooo!" is he still can't take it and nobody wants to help

    it could be about anger or an addiction, like he's hurting people with his addiction, and its ruining him but when people upset him, he needs it more.

    Alright, let me give it a shot.


    Verse 1

    "There goes my valentine again
    Soaked in red for what she said
    And now shes gone"

    Another "valentine" (assuming girl he likes) is dead because of what she said. Seems like she was a victim of not backing down during a fuss fight, and said something that got her killed.

    "Oh my god have i done it again
    theres a pulse and its deafening.
    I can't help what i hear in my head
    it's the switch that i flick (when she says)"

    He must have killed someone or a previous "valentine", since he bluntly asks himself "have I done it again". Him not being mentally used to killing someone, his body reacts by increasing blood flow due to ecstasy. Which is how he's able to hear his pulse loudly. This is uncommon, since runners or martial artists may hear the same thing during activities. He's also saying, that he "flips a switch" which I assume he means he snapped and went berserk.


    CHORUS----------

    "Hand of blood, i don't wanna feel, my heart is breaking
    Hand of blood, i don't wanna see, my life is burning "

    He doesn't want to feel or see (at the moment) because all he feels and sees is what he's done. Which is mentally traumatizing.


    "I saw you look away
    Is what you've seen too much to take
    Or are you blind and seeing nothing , I saw you run
    I saw you run away
    is what i've done too much to take or are you scared of being nothing"

    This could be someone or himself that he's talking to. Since he's the only one that seems to be not able to take what he's done, or "afraid of being nothing". When he says this though, he could mean "scared of not being worth anything" instead of "not existing".

    CHORUS-----------


    Verse 2

    "There's a stain on my hand and it's red
    oh my god am i losing it
    I can't help what i've done or i said
    It's the buttons i push (when she says)"

    It seems he's freaking out about the blood on his hand. He's also blaming it on the heat of the moment for what he's done and what he said to his "valentines". Which is starting to seem more and more of a fuss fight between the two.

    Well this is just my interpretation of it.. :)

    A guy has killed, he stabbed someone or something and his girlfriend saw him commit this. She has been scared by this sight, this side of him that she saw that night. I think that he has killed people before “Oh my god have I don’t it again, there’s a pulse and it’s deafening”

    The guy regrets what he has done- maybe just because his girlfriend saw him- and he doesn’t want to feel that his heart is breaking or his life is burning and falling apart.

    He wants to know if the reason she won’t look at him and talk to him is because she has either seen a horrible sight or she just can’t stand the thought of him. Either way she doesn’t like him now and she runs away. I think that she is afraid that because she knows what he does and doesn’t tell that will make her a bad person, make her nothing and worthless to herself and others.

    When he says he has a stain it’s because what he has done is permanent, it won’t wash away no matter what he will have to live with himself and what he has done. He will always have blood on his hands now.

    He says how he is losing it and can’t control it, someone just pushes the wrong button and it sets him off. He has regrets about everything and he doesn’t want to live with himself and his guilt. In the end he kills his girlfriend to make sure she doesn’t tell anyone but then he kills himself, because he loved her and she was the only thing that kept him controlled and together. This proves that everyone has their breaking limits and everyone can love someone so deeply.

    I think his girlfriend died or something. One of them did and he feels responsible for her death.
