Background

The song's title was revealed along with the tracklist to I Disagree (more) on July 28th, 2020.

Theme

"'If It Bleeds' is a distant relative of 'Don't Go Outside' in that it's about the news media and sensationalism. The title obviously comes from the saying 'If it bleeds, it leads.' The song doesn't have specific targets in mind, but overall it's a reoccurring issue I pay attention to." - Poppy in an interview with Apple Music[1]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Stupid people follow suit
Walking blindly, getting screwed
They follow news for what to do
Devour what they feed to you
Know your life's inopportune
Hey there, tool, I'm looking at you

[Chorus]
Why is everyone screaming
So loud for no reason?
Idiots are breeding
Why do words have no meaning?
The story's gonna lead when
The leader is bleeding
Ah

[Verse 2]
You're in a race, but out of it
Like a quitter, born to quit
Yeah, we know you're losing it
Won't read past a headline
You can't be bothered to try
You're in a mindless rush to die

[Chorus]
Why is everyone screaming
So loud for no reason?
Idiots are breeding
Why do words have no meaning?
The story's gonna lead when
The leader is bleeding
Ah

[Bridge]
Do you believe?
Or will you succeed?
Come on, I dare you
I dare you

[Chorus]
Why is everyone screaming
So loud for no reason?
Idiots are breeding
Why do words have no meaning?
The story's gonna lead when
The leader is bleeding
Ah
