LOCKED in a room like a tomb to fall from bed to sickness and no one to witness this mess i'm left with. And you thought this moment was just a tickle in your throat, an itch on the roof of your mouth. So CUT OFF THE HEAD and laugh like a smile. Are you here? Is this the way all stories end? Believe me DEAR? I'd rather swallow tassles than tacks. AAAAAAAAAHHH!!! My ideas are crucified on this cross. So thin and loose but these nails are slowly slipping throughthe boards. This gauze is stopping blood. This gauze is SOAKED twice through. Leaving us stained.

    General CommentThe title of this song reminds me of the comic Johnny the Homicidal Maniac (or JTHM) where he constantly has to kill people in order to paint the walls with their blood to please the monster that's behind them, and if he ever stops and the blood on the walls gets too dry and old, the monster will break through. Maybe the title has nothing to do with that, but that's what it reminded me of.

    Also, the lyrics in this room seem to somewhat match the lyrics in "Shadows of Ghosts Passing On City Streets," like a sequel or a prequel to that song.

    General CommentCoincidentally, I also compare this song to JTHM =D.

    IT CHANGES COLORS WHEN IT DRIES! Jaja. Love Jhonen Vasquez.

    Ah. And this song. First CoC song I had, I believe, but it was a live version with a clipped title (Painting Over the Blood on the Walls, or someting akin).
