"Red and Dying Evening" as written by and Shawn/lee Milke....
You've taken the last of me
The god's of your innocence shall not protect you from the hate of my wrath
You've taken the last of me
Blame the end on yourself
You deserve each tear that falls
Scratch out your eyes

The blood will drown in red and I will leave you for dead
A lovely evening draped in regret
The shadow of justice now engulfs you
As cold hands reap the pain they've sewn
You've taken the last of me
Blame the end on yourself
You deserve each tear that falls
Scratch out your eyes

The blood will drown in red and I will leave you for dead
A lovely evening draped in regret
Forever gone
The taste of your death replaced the smell of your breath
A lovely evening draped in regret

Suffocate your will to live with my pain
You were so easily seduced by greed
You could never feel my calloused hands closing around your throat
Taste your loss
Wake into the nightmare that has become our love
May your screams never cease
You've taken the last of me

Blame the end on yourself
You deserve each tear that falls
Scratch out your eyes

The blood will drown in red and I will leave you for dead
A lovely evening draped in regret
Forever gone
The taste of your death replaced the smell of your breath
A lovely evening draped in regret

Forever gone
The taste of your death replaced the smell of your breath
A lovely evening draped in regret

Suffocate your will to live with my pain
You were so easily seduced by greed
You could never feel my calloused hands closing around your throat
Taste your loss
Wake into the nightmare that has become our love
May your screams never cease
You've taken the last of me

A knight in shining armor can make your dreams come true

    General CommentWhat howcome these guys don't have even one post for this song (excluding mine) these guys deserve much better than only one post. I believe that this song reffers to a dude that has had rough times with his girlfriend and is plotting revenge because he is tired of her and he is finding out how to forget about her.

    General CommentFor a little while i thought the song was about the Red Death, like from Edgar Allen Poe (The Mask Of The Red Death).

    General CommentSOOOOOOOOOOO obviously...

    this is one of those typical songs.where a girl breaks up with a guy. and like now the girl probz wants him back hence the "blame the end on yourself" and "you deserve each tear that falls"
    he's probz like "its too late for that biotttchh!" like he still loves her, but doesnt wanna go back to that. :D



    oh and at the end you forgot the lyrics after the piano he sings

    "KNIGHT OH KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR CAN MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE"

    General CommentI read in an interview that one song was inspired by the fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin
    I'd say it's this song...

    In the same interview Shawn said one song is inspired by Foundling-Bird
    tbo, i dunno what song that could be
