Look how you've grown,
it's etched in skin and bone,
dressed in make-up
and bleached out in the roses.

That¹s hollow and tasteless,
where spirits make love and pretty corpses hold their brides.

Do you know I'd never hurt you?
(I loved you so much, we are not broken, we are deathless.)
So taste it and we will never be alone,
I¹ll take the first bite,
yeah, I am Ghost,
say goodnight to you,
my darling, my darling.

Few words can kill me,
they inspire in your hands!
The sun outside these glass-shaped walls
will burn the flesh off paper dolls,
my lips and tongue they bleed...
We won¹t fall, we¹ll be together,
just the two of us.

That¹s hollow and breathless,
it kills me slowly,
I¹m lost and lonely!

Do you know I'd never hurt you?
(I loved you so much, we are not broken, we are deathless.)
So taste it and we will never be alone,
I¹ll take the first bite,
yeah, I am Ghost,
say goodnight to you,
my darling, my darling.

I am so sorry,
so take this rose
take this rose
and break this bottle of aged pills,
taste the blue ones
and we will sleep through December.
Awake to the birth of an Angel,
she has your eyes,
and I will hide them, don't worry.
And soon she will grow,
I can¹t believe this is all my fault,
yeah, soon she will grow,
unbury me, and put me back together again.

Taste it!
Sad rose for life
because I am already dead!

So taste it and we will never be alone,
I¹ll take the first bite,
yeah, I am Ghost,
say goodnight to you,
my darling, my darling.

So taste it and we will never be alone,
I¹ll take the first bite,
yeah, I am Ghost,
say goodnight to you,
my darling, my darling.

    General Commentbecause the album is about the war between an angel and vampire falling in love, and how they fight to be together, i think the part that says:
    "Awake to the birth of an Angel,
    she has your eyes,
    and I will hide them, don't worry.
    And soon she will grow,
    I can�t believe this is all my fault,
    yeah, soon she will grow,"

    means that they have a baby, thats an angel like her father, but they know that the devil/vampires/other angels will want her killed, like they want to kill her parents, so he says he will hide her away and she will grow up and live.
    i'm not too sure about the rest other then what everyone else has said :/

    General Commenti like this song pretty well, i didnt know vampires never really die was in the name tho. are they unsigned or something? because i never hear about them on tv or nothing. what do u think the meaning is? the third verse sounds like is is talking about having a baby or something. i know that cant be right tho.

    General CommentYes, they have a record label. You never hear about them on TV because the only channel where "music" is discussed is MTV, and MTV fucking sucks and never plays ANYTHING, unless it's so huge it can't be ignored anymore.
