    blood on the leaves is about holding power in letting go of someone he saw potential in, simply out of self respect. the person he's speaking of betrayed him. although it's heartbreaking, he finds a way to push through without her. while all these little things he keeps remembering bring him flashbacks of grief, he overcomes them with nothing but worth of one's own. he can't help but to self destruct in confusion and anger. keeping in mind that there's more to life than love, there's power. and there's loyalty. loyalty to himself, and those who are loyal to him.

    slavery? the short, high-pitched squeals in the song are taken from Nina Simone's song "Strange Fruit". In the song she talks about the lynching of black Americans, so maybe this has something to do with Kanye's song blood on the leaves.
