"A New Way To Bleed" (alternate legal title: New Way to Bleed[1]) is a bonus track on the deluxe edition of Evanescence's self-titled third studio album. It's one of the three songs that feature harp.

The song was included on the compilation album Lost Whispers in 2016.

Meaning Edit

Amy said in a Rockline Radio interview on October 17, 2011:

That was a song that Terry and I worked on together about a year ago. I think that song is the closest to sort of our moment from The Open Door. It's hard to explain without pissing people off. I was sort of singing about the label not getting what we were doing, to be honest.[2]

LyricsEdit

Serve your twisted enemy
So you might earn forgiveness
You know your whole world is waiting
So why can’t you speak?

I feel it coming over me
I'm still a slave to these dreams
Is this the end of everything
Or just a new way to bleed?

So go and tell all your friends that I'm a failure underneath
If it makes you feel like a bigger man
But it's my, my heart, my life that you're calling a lie
I've played this game before
And I can't take anymore

I feel it coming over me
I'm still a slave to these dreams
Is this the end of everything
Or just a new way to bleed?

By drifting far beyond the edge...

Freedom, freedom
Can't you feel the ground caving in?
Freedom
Give us a reason to believe again

I feel it coming over me
I'm still a slave to these dreams
Is this the end of everything
Or just a new way to bleed?
