Can you guys define this expression for me, cause my dictionaries fall short of it?

I wasn’t able to work out the exact meaning in the figurative sense and it’s really not included in some otherwise very good dictionaries.
Now it makes sense. I can think of the following example from a song:
Bid my blood to run
Before I come undone
Save me from the nothing I’ve become…
(Evanescence – “Bring me to Life” – at least that’s the way the lyrics are transcribed over websites, and I can’t really hear – I’m not quite sure this “bid someone’s blood to run” is correct…)

It's poetry. I interpret "bid my blood to run" to basically mean 'make my blood run'.
