This nightmare ends.
as the cocoon fills with oil.
fossils bocome waste upon cemented wings.
on the rocks father spills memories of mothers eyes.
a kiss turns to brandy.
a dagger learns to cut hair.
lipstick stains her addiction...
watch the cresent moon turn clouds into frowns.
watch to sea swallow and forget...
given up ambiton for and legs...
venom engulfs the most precious fairy tales.
goldilocks forgets the bite for prince charming...
each window breaths smoke, pavement paces while ciggarettes burn.
a tribal affair rises the masses of broken hearts left at her door

    General Commenti think its all about something nice or beautiful liek a family or a dad, that can seem so great, but make things so bad, like a dad coming home with lipstick on his collar, and/or drunk hitting the mother...most of their songs are about broken hearts. but hell man, thats emo!

    General Commentyeah id say its about a family being torn apart by addictions in general, whether sex, alcohol, drugs, or a number of other things, the song kinda talks about each of them

    "a kiss turns to brandy. "
    "venom engulfs the most precious fairy tales. " (i think venom could be drugs, im not really sure on that though)
    "goldilocks forgets the bite for prince charming... "
    (i would say that could be a sex addiction)
    actually now that i think about it it could be about somebody trying to fill up their lives with the wrong things, moving from alcohol to drugs to sex, and the nightmare is neverending

    General Comment^ your close on most of that.

    the part.. "goldilocks forgets the bite for prince charming... " would most definately be anorexia. not sex.

    General Comment"Broken hearts left at her door", sounds kinda like that's more to do with heartbreak and a careless girl, the rest of it is pretty strange, but "A kiss turns to brandy" COULD mean that he'll get no more kisses so he'll drink instead though, also "On the rocks father spills memories of mothers eyes" sounds like the mom possibly died? And the father maybe mourning, that would make more sense of the kiss turns to brandy bit...
