Load (album)

Bleeding Me is a song by the heavy metal band Metallica. It is their 7th track from their 1996 album Load.

Song Theme

In Bleeding Me, the lyrical theme, as recounted by Jason Newsted, is said to be about mental torture. The phrase "Caught under wheels, roll" is meant to have an implication that the suffering never ceases. The other theme is James Hetfield's problem with alcohol, how he dealt with it. James said in the 2001 Playboy interview that he'd shed a tear, and the other guys wouldn't care.

Lyrics

    I'm digging my way
    I'm digging my way to something
    I'm digging my way to something better
    
    I'm pushing to stay
    I'm pushing to stay with something
    I'm pushing to stay with something better
    
    I'm sowing the seeds
    I'm sowing the seeds I've taken
    I'm sowing the seeds I take for granted
    
    This thorn in my side
    This thorn in my side is from the tree
    This thorn in my side is from the tree I've planted
    
    It tears me and I bleed
    And I bleed
    
         Caught under wheels' roll
         I take the leech, I'm bleeding me
         Can't stop to save my soul
         I take the leash that's leading me
         I'm bleeding me
         I can't take it
         Caught under wheels' roll
         The bleeding of me
         Of me
         The bleeding of me
    
    I am the beast that feeds the feast
    I am the blood, I am release
    
    Come make me pure
    Bleed me a cure
    I'm caught, I'm caught, I'm caught under
    
         Caught under wheels' roll
         I take the leech, I'm bleeding me
         Can't stop to save my soul
         I take the leash that's leading me
         I'm bleeding me
         I can't take it
         Caught under wheels' roll
         The bleeding of me
         Of me
         The bleeding of me
    
    I'm digging my way
    I'm digging my way to something
    I'm digging my way to something better
    
    I'm pushing to stay
    I'm pushing to stay with something
    I'm pushing to stay with something better
    With something better
