Dead girl
There will never be another one that dreams like you
Dead girl
There will never be another one that screams like you
When death sleeps, it dreams of you
Delilah played the dead girl at the freak show
She smiles like a ghost
Like zombies eatin' dust in Mexico
Life dries cold beneath the dead soul lights
She asked if it would hurt
I smiled and said no
The lie ran down my chin like embryo
She smiles like a corpse
Like zombies eatin' dust in Mexico
Life dries cold beneath the dead soul lights
When death sleeps, it dreams of you
Dead girl
There will never be another one to look in your eyes
Dead girl
There will never be another one that bleeds like you
I been dryin' in a dead age
I been reekin' of the new plague
The sound of the ocean is dead
It's just the echo of the blood in your head
Sister burn the temple
And stand beneath the moon
The sound of the ocean is dead
It's just the echo of the blood in your head
Burning your black flags
Burning your black flags
I been dryin' in a dead age
I been reekin' of the new plague
The sound of the ocean is dead
It's just the echo of the blood in your head
Sister burn the temple
And stand beneath the moon
The sound of the ocean is dead
It's just the echo of the blood in your head
Burning your black flags
Burning your black flags

    General Commentwow guys talking about way off..dax riggs personally told me after a show in panama city beach florida at my buddies house the song was about a girl at a bar that everyone was passing around sexually and we all treated her badly and she was raped and killed on the beach during spring break. burning your black flags was kinda a joke in it'self cause we have flag warnings for the rip current greed ok to swim yellow at risk red no swimming ....guess black means death was kinda like a sick joke about that..but the like zombies eating dust in mexico ..mexico beach is right around the corner and the girl was strangled im on the beach itself
    he didn't care for this girl like a girlfriend she was more of a groupy they have a sorta cult following..it was all rather sad it was after a show they did and she left was some stranger and he felt quilty ...end of story it was big news in our town. never be another one that bleeds like you mean no one can replace her ...soud of the ocean is dead ...etc etc.

    i know this for fact cause he told me himself after a show like 2 months later he spent the night at a friend of mines cousins house and i hung out with him and the sammy all night ...ps. he likes black cats hahaha inside joke he knows what im talking about...yeah this band came here alot i saw them every weekend for about a year they did a mini self tour...btw dax has a son now grats bro

    General CommentI had an epiphany the other day regarding this song...

    "The sound of the ocean is dead, it's just the echo of the blood in your head" = conch shell. The sound heard when you put your ear up to a conch is really just the sound of blood rushing through your skull.

    Great song, and amazing lyrics. Regarding the murdered groupie story, I heard somewhere that Dax later visited the murderer in jail and supposedly he helped write this song. Interesting theory, but I think symantec pretty much cleared everything up.

    General CommentIt seems like him coming to terms with everything is going to die so why not kill it?

    General Commenti would just like to say that i dont think acid bath was necessarily pro-life or pro-choice, they are too classy to be that overtly political, or even political at all, i think the songs they write about abortion deal more with death in general as well as the effect death has on humanity

    General Commentmy interpretation, which of course might just be completely off the wall, and it could be just about abortion, but I hope it's not. I think it's about a girl infected with AIDS.

    'she asked if it would hurt, I smiled and said no
    the lie ran down my chin like embryo, she smiles like a corpse, like zombies eatin' dust in mexico'
    would be her giving him the virus through sexual intercourse, and he doesn't know it

    'I been dryin' in a dead age, I been reekin' of the new plague'
    he is now infected

    I hope I'm right cuz I like that alot better than abortion :p

    General Commenthonestly, I think you're all wrong. I think the song is about a girl he is or was in love with, and this was his own little love song to her with a dimented twist put in it. Kinda like alot of HIM songs.
