"My Black Dahlia" as written by Aron Erlichman, Jorel Decker and George Arthur Ragan....
I loved you, you made me, hate me.
You gave me hate, see?.
It saved me and these tears are deadly.
You feel that?
I rip back, every time you tried to steal that.
You feel bad? You feel sad?
I'm sorry, hell no fuck that!
It was my heart, it was my life, it was my start, it was your knife.
This strife, it dies, this life and these lies.
And these lungs, have sung, this song, for too long,
And it's true, I hurt too, remember I loved you.

[Chorus]
I've, lost it all, fell today, it's all the same
I'm sorry oh,
I'm sorry no
I've, been abused, I feel so used, because of you
I'm sorry oh,
I'm sorry no

I wish I could have quit you,
I wish I never missed you,
And told you that I loved you, every time I fucked you.
The future that we both drew, and all the shit we've been through,
Obsessed with the thought of you, the pain just grew and grew.
How could you do this to me?
Look at what I made for you, it never was enough and the world is what I gave to you.
I used to be love struck, now I'm just fucked up,
Pull up my sleeves and see the pattern of my cuts.

[Chorus]

Seems like all we had is over now you left to rest.
And your tears are dried up now, you just lay without a sound.
Seems like all we had is over now, you left to rest.
And my fears are over now,
I can leave with my head down.

[Chorus]

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song I was like WHOA! I hope an ex-bf never listens to this song and thinks about me. I don't know. Its a sad, angst filled song. I love it! My favorite part is -" I wish I never missed you, And told you that I loved you, every
    time I fucked you." HAHA Thats the only part I sing in the whole song. I love this song though... Its bueno.

    General Commentthis song could mean very many things but personally to me its about a girl that he truly loved and didnt once question his feelings for and for once in his life he trusted someone and then she threw it back in his face i guess you could say.

    but of course i feel that way because it recently happen to me.../=

    "I wish I could I could have quit you.
    I wish I never missed you,
    And told you that I loved you, every time I fucked you.
    The future that we both drew, and all the shit we've been through.
    Obsessed with the thought of you, the pain just grew and grew!
    How could you do this to me?
    Look at what I made for you, it never was enough and the world is what I gave to you.
    I used to be love struck; now I'm just fucked up.
    Pull up my sleeves and see the pattern of my cuts!"

    with this hes basically saying he wished he never met her bacause then maybe he wouldnt have ended up in so much pain. he cant stop thinking of the pain and its pretty much all he thinks about.with the "how could you do this to me" she probably lead him to believe she really did love him.he gave her everything anyone ever wants(love) and it wasnt ever good enough for her. with the "I used to be love struck; now I'm just fucked up." he is saying they once were so in love (or he was) and now everything has crashed and well his life is fucked up.

    and finally with "Pull up my sleeves and see the pattern of my cuts!" he is wanting her to see the pain he is in.


    but this is just my perspective.

    Song MeaningWhen he says
    "Seems like all we had is over now you left to rest.
    And your tears are dried up now, you just lay without a sound.
    Seems like all we had is over now, you left to rest.
    And my fears are over now,
    I can leave with my head down."
    He is referring to the title Black Dahlia because Black Dahlia was a murder case in which a man kills his ex girlfriend out of anger. The case was never solved and nobody ever found the killer

    General Comment" I rip back, everytime you tried to steal that."
    is actually " I ripped that, everytime you tried to seal that."

    those lyrics are confirmed on hollywood undead's personal website and myspace
