"The Hanging Garden (The Cure cover)" as written by Robert James Smith, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Simon Gallup....
Creatures kissing in the rain
Shapeless in the dark again
In the hanging garden, please don't speak
In the hanging garden, no one sleeps

In the hanging garden
In the hanging garden

Casting halos on the moon
Gives my hands the shapes of angels
In the heat of the night, the animals scream
In the heat of the night, walking into a dream

Fall, fall, fall, fall into the walls
Jump, jump out of time
Fall, fall, fall, fall out of the sky
Cover my face as the animals cry

In the hanging garden
In the hanging garden

Creatures kissing in the rain
Shapeless in the dark again
In the hanging garden, change the past
In the hanging garden, wearing furs and masks

Fall, fall, fall, fall into the walls
Jump, jump out of time
Fall, fall, fall, fall out of the sky
Cover my face as the animals die

In the hanging garden, as the animals die
Cover my face as the animals die

In the hanging garden
In the hanging garden
In the hanging garden
In the hanging garden
In the hanging garden

    General Commenti give this song attention and i love it. AFI is so good at covering songs they never butcher them like some other bands will.

    General CommentThis song is waay different from most of AFI's other stuff, even all their other covers, but it is still pretty good. It is long too, and kinda trippy, and I have no idea what it's about, but it has a kinda cool feeling to it.

    General CommentI dont mean to bitch but why do people bother putting songs under a band when they just covered it, shoudlnt we leave it under the original band. AFI still kicks major ass though.

    General CommentMost Cure songs are not about sex....... this one on the other hand is and of course like most other cure songs is amazing..
    ---the hanging garden is something like about the purity and hate of animals fucking, and i think siamese twins is about the hate and purity of people fucking too ...
