Yellow Belly
Thrice Lyrics


You were built for blessing but you only make them bleed
But you don't care, you don't care
And bruises are but shadows of the blackness
That you breathe but you don't care, you don't care

The light that's left inside their eyes is darkened
Day by day but you don't care, you don't care
The presence pulls the color from the world til all is gray
But you don't care, you don't, you don't, you don't

You're less than half a man, yellow belly and crimson hands
You will one day reap your reckoning, maybe then you'll understand
Your hands are made to comfort but they only conjure fear
But you don't care, you don't care

She's in the closet praying Lord please get me out of here
You don't care, you don't you don't you don't
You're less than half a man, yellow belly and crimson hands
You will one day reap your reckoning, maybe then you'll understand

What mercy have they known, from you, from you
To ask that I be shown, to you, to you
To ask that I be shown, to you, to you

The Broski

The most underrated rock song, this song is a true work of art

George Hugo

Things that keep me coming back to this song:
Opening riff and beat.
Chorus at 02:28 - guitar tones so big!
Lyrics on brigde: "What mercy have they known from you? / To ask that it be shown to you?"
This is also the song that made me want a baritone guitar!

Donathan Carson

Hey man I know this sort of a late comment to reply to but, I had wanted a baritone guitar for ages but I had settled on a 7 string and a few years later I had bought a PRS Baritone, I love the baritone but I use the 7 string more, I find it a lot more versatile and you can usually get one at a better price

Luke Concienne

You were built for blessing,
But you only make them bleed,
You don't care, you don't care
And bruises are but shadows
Of the blackness that you breed,
But you don't care, you don't care

The light that's left inside their eyes
Is darkened day by day
But you don't care, you don't care
Your presence pulls the color
From the world til all is grey
But you don't care, you don't, you don't, you don't.

You're less than half a man
Yellow belly and crimson hands
You're the ones that reap your reckoning,
Maybe then you'll understand

Hands are made to comfort
But they only conjure fear
But you don't care, you don't care
She's in the closet, praying "Lord, please get me out of here"
You don't care, you don't you don't you don't

You're less than half a man
Yellow belly and crimson hands
You're the ones that reap your reckoning,
Maybe then you'll understand

What mercy have they known,
From you, from you
To ask that I be shown,
To you, to you

What mercy have they known,
From you, from you
To ask that I be shown,
To you, to you

TallDude Joe

This song is crazy underrated like wtf!

Adam Herrick

I think this is when the version of Thrice I really enjoy began.

Nate Stein

I think of this song as I overhear ugly shouting from the apartment down the hall.

Julian White

This is a song for the elite, and anyone else who harms children
