about

From Party Nails:

This is the last song I wrote for my first album, and it always felt like the first song of a new era. The hook is “I’m drowned by silence / give me some air to breathe / Don’t need a cut to bleed” and talks about the specific pain that wombs give the people who house them. We can bear life and that is powerful, but that power is abused again and again and again. We don’t need a cut to bleed—in fact our blood is actually blood of life, a menstruation period is actually a pregnancy that never was. And so our bodies and our voices and our stories are misinterpreted, misread, mistreated, and just when we are all used up, the cycle starts again. This song is about that power, exhaustion, confusion, knowledge and human experience. You don’t need to be a woman to love her and feel her pain. Instead of looking away from the chaos, see it for what it is: magic.


“Cut To Bleed” is the fourth single off Party Nails' forthcoming sophomore record, and is written and produced by Party Nails (Elana Belle Carroll) and mixed by Ryan Nasci.

lyrics

I’ve been dreaming these days
I can’t tell sleeping from awake
sometimes in the morning I can’t escape
I wonder if this medication’s to blame

These dreams never feel right
It seems I’m looking for a fight
I’m scared to take apart the stories they tell
I think I know the plot line all too well

But the obstacles I’m facing and living everyday
Will all be fine
Predictable ain’t nothing and nothing ain’t no fun
I’m drowned by silence
Give me some air to breathe
Don’t need a cut to bleed

I’ve been thinking again
That entertainment is a sin
The way we treat our people breaks my heart
Seeing women in the movies tears me apart

But the obstacles I’m facing and living everyday
Will all be fine
Predictable ain’t nothing and nothing ain’t no fun
I’m drowned by silence
Give me some air to breathe
Don’t need a cut to bleed
