"Chrysanthemum" as written by Art Alexakis, Craig Montoya and Greg Eklund....
Yes I hate the way I feel and it makes no sense
Five months gone and all I got
Pretty pink flowers on my chain link fence
I don't like what it means
Cause I know there's more to come
I can't go home without
Chrysanthemum

I walk around lost and I don't know why
I don't see the faces or the places I should recognize
It's like that dream where it feels like home but it don't look right
Yes I will look everywhere tonight
I will not stop till I make things right
And I can't go home till I see the sun
I can't go home without
Chrysanthemum
No I can't go home without
Chrysanthemum

    General CommentChrysanthemum in Europe are a symbol of death and are usually put on graves or used at funerals.

    Art was really into drugs in his early years. Dunno.

    General CommentChrysanthemum is about the disappearances/murders of Ashley Pond and Miranda Gaddis from the Portland, Oregon area in 2002. The two girls were close in age to Art's daughter (they were 13 and 14, and his daughter was 10). The two girls lived about 20 miles away from where Art lives. He's said in interviews that the song is him putting himself in the shoes
