MEMORIAM commented on the track: “Bleed The Same is a response to the fear and hatred that exists in the world that we live in today.  The lyrics are predominately about freedom, equality and justice. This is a theme that is explored throughout the new album The Silent Vigil. The lyrical content of the song is a comment on the the rise of nationalistic xenophobic ideologies that proliferate on a global scale right now.
The song was ironically inspired by a speech given by Donald Trump in his inauguration ceremony in 2017.”
