"Emma" as written by and Derek R Grant Daniel Michael Andriano....
Emma appeared like an angel.
Emma fell like rain
Into my lap like a heart attack.
Like lightning from her name
I'm running dry of bad excuses.
Don't want to lie or seem intrusive, but
Time hasn't told me anything,
And neither has she

A poinsettia in poison rain...
Traded true love for insult and injury
We washed it down the drain with
One silver bullet and two vicodin

Emma woke up in darkness,
Suitcase already packed
Note on the bedstand signed in blood,
"sincerely, never coming back."
A nightmare on my street the day she arrived
A nightmarish household in which she died,
'cause it made her feel at home
Somehow made me feel at home

A poinsetta in poison rain...
Traded true love for insult and injury
We washed it down the drain with
One wooden stake through the heart, and two vicodin

A poinsetta in poison rain...
Traded true love for insult and injury
We washed it down the drain with
One silver bullet and two vicodin
And we watched the sun fall crown
On a city that sleeps in a world upside down
A slow ticket straight out of town
You went out with a bang when you took
With you all my dreams underground

    General Commentthe line "one silver bullet and two vicodin" has nothing to do with vampires...

    vicodin is a strong painkiller and its effects are greatly increased by the consumption of alcohol

    a silver bullet in this case is a coors light can; he's drinking the beer with the vicodin to get fucked up

    fucking sick line...

    General CommentReally love that song, definately my favorite from Good Mourning. The chorus kicks soo much ass and yeah, i think it was the right decision to let Dan sing Matt's song...

    General CommentI think I heard something in an interview snibbit about how this song is about when Matt was in school and there was this girl that kicked him in the balls in front of everyone. Beautiful song(maybe it's due to the fact that the love of my current life is named Emma...)

    General CommentThis song kicks so much ass...it almost pains me to hear people say that Good Mourning is a bad CD. I swear to god I'm gonna maul the next person that says that, although most of my friends share my taste in music, there are the select few with 0 taste that like other stuff. But yeah...great song

    General CommentMatt said this song was about a girl in middle school named Emma who seemed to have a weird relation with their teacher because one day she kicked him in the nuts.
