about

bloodwire Oakland, California

Based out of Oakland, California, Bloodwire began in 2001 when Shawn Brice (formerly of BATTERY,) wrote an instrumental piece for I-Li Chang as a gift. I-Li was so moved by his music that she immediately wrote lyrics and melody for the song. The transformation began and Bloodwire emerged. ... more

Track Name: Boardwater
Stay with me will you
I want to show you this is your life free from pain
Please explain how or why you chose to live in anguish
Smile in vain
Did you fall from grace?
And I still belive
And I still have hope
Don't spend your whole life
Strung out in the cold

Open your heart
keep fear at bay
let go of the anger
let it slip away...
Track Name: Absence
Say goodbye to this moment
Just when you thought it was time
It snuck right out the side door
And it dragged you along with it
Say goodbye to this moment
Just when you thought you were safe
It snuck back out the front door
And it left without a trace

This absence is pain
And I know it, I know it by name

Say hello to this moment
Just when you thought it was gone
It snuck right up behind you
And it whispered his name

*Hope*
Track Name: More Than Life
As days go by, I feel like I'm already dying
I wonder why, I'm still just tossing and turning

But I will always love you
You're so much more than life
And taste the bittersweetness
Just one more time

As days go by, I'm so afraid that my thoughts have grown spiteful
But the light inside, you've shown me
I'm forever grateful

And I will always love you
You're so much more than life
And taste the bittersweetness
Just one more time

As days go by, I yearn to hear your voice laughing again
And recognize that smile
You're my guardian angel

And I will always love you
You're so much more than life
And taste the bittersweetness
Just one more time
Track Name: Overdue
Will you take this pain away
Don't tell me that I'm on my own
Then you turn around and stay
Well I don't want to play this game...anymore

What makes you think that I'll
Be here when you arrive
Your time is gone now

Stop trying to reach for me
When will you realize
I don't want you now

Cheat, deceive, make believe you love me
Why, lie, I despise your everything

What makes you think that I'll
Be here when you arrive
Your time is gone now

Stop trying to reach for me
When will you realize
I don't want you now
Track Name: Caving In
hopeless confusion
lies deep within
trite conversation
is wearing thin

why we can no longer tolerate
this make believe

what's going on
cold secrecy
my heart's caving in

veils of illusion
are all I see
deceitful lies
betraying me

had faith in all your honesty
i'm so naive

what's going on
blind jealousy
my heart's caving in

bitter frustration
tormenting me
well i've had enough
yes, i've had enough

always forever wondering
what might have been

what's going on
insecurity
my heart's caving in

well i've had enough
yes, i've had enough
Track Name: Hallway
so many reasons
a constant baiting
like a nagging itch
that i'm tired of scratching

i've been through this hallway
and down this passage full of grief
the wall's still bleeding
as i walk by

the weight of my worries
crash down upon me
like an iron fist
the pain has been branded

i've been through this hallway
and down this passage full of grief
the wall's still bleeding
as i walk by

just walk on by
i'm walking
i'm walking
Track Name: Relinquish
Shelter me from all that I'm feeling
Your warmth remains whenever I dream
Wasted time they've always deemed
Splintered life I won't forget
I want you here, I want you here...

Harboring the visions created, tainted.

Give up now
I've exhausted all my pride
It's too late now
Relinquish all
I want you here, I want you here...

Treasuring the memories faded, you're so jaded.

Give up now
I've exhausted all my pride
It's too late now
Relinquish all
I want you here, I want you here...
Track Name: Was The Day
And this was the day
When I was young
And toss your cares away
To watch the evening sun

Washed out and empty, for so long
With no results (without a spark)
Torn down and thirsting for life
Reinvented

*Don’t waste your time
*Watch for the signs
*Soak up the sea
*And Dive in too deep

And this was the day
To feel safe in a cage
With your heart on display
Sitting here for all to forsake

Green-eyed with envy collide
Through the door
Fed up and hungry for
Something more

*Don’t waste your time
*Watch for the signs
*Soak up the sea
*Dive in too deep

And this was the day
When everything changed
You’ve crossed that barricade, finally
New thoughts rearranged

Pent-up and bursting with fire
Lose control
Just wreak havoc daily inspire
A new beginning

*Don’t waste your time
*Watch for the signs
*Soak up the sea
*Just dive in too deep
Track Name: Spring To Life
Close to the edge
Don't look down
Spring to life
Time to release

Change pushing me
So surprisingly free
Break these chains
I'll leap so you will see me
Track Name: Accusations
Look what you did
Made me loose it again
Try to fight and to win
And without giving into your bullshit

Make it all disappear
Back and forth with a sneer
Like I don't even care if it hits you

Too wasted to notice you were gone
Too proud to admit that I was wrong

Accusations
Reckless game
Accusations
With all of your shame
Will you swallow your pride for the blame?

Lost in the fight
And where no one is right
Strangleholding you tight
Is it hard to forgive and forget

It's hard to believe
I can lie and deceive
Without batting an eye
What a web i can weave
around you
It surrounds you

Too wasted to notice you were gone
Too proud to admit that I was wrong

Accusations
Reckless game
Accusations
With all of your shame
Will you swallow your pride for the blame?
Track Name: Remains
i've lost control
too late to pacify my demons
cruel resentment holds
our lives unrelenting
everchanging words
fall destitute and disintegrated
and for what it's worth
i'm still in love with you

and for what it's worth
i'm still in love with you
and for what it's worth
i'm still in love with you

it's easier to ignore
what my heart is saying
all the while
silence remains

as the leaves unfold
beneath the thorns are lined with velvet
may the truth be told
i refuse to say it's over

and for what it's worth
i'm still in love with you
and for what it's worth
i'm still in love with you

and all this time
i've always been here silently waiting
and for what it's worth
i'm still in love with you

and for what it's worth
i'm still in love with you
and for what it's worth
i'm still in love with you

it's easier to ignore
that my heart is saying
all the while
