in my bed of black roses
where i dream secrets the back of my eyelids keep

so you wanna believe all the things you've been told
and all the promises that you won't grow old
in the life made up of strings
being pulled by secret beings
and now i know my falls and fights that brought me here
of things that seem to disappear you can't understand my sane nightmare

in my bed of black roses
where i dream secrets the back of my eyelids keep
in my red scar and bruises
it's only my beginning
and i have the feeling i'll go
down my own road

everyone still walks with fear in their lives
past the place where these stars go to die
street lights filter through my blinds
knowing life's a real short time
and now i shake the hands of all my old enemies
ignore the threat of bad disease
i choose the road ahead i please

in my bed of black roses
where i dream secrets the back of my eyelids keep
in my red scar and bruises
it's only my beginning
and i have the feeling i'll go

if this is what she wants
this is where i am
this is where you want
this is where i stand
i stand alone
alone

in my bed of black roses
where i dream secrets the back of my eyelids keep
in my red scar and bruises
it's only my beginning
and i have the feeling that i'll go
i'll go down my own road

bed of black roses
where i dream secrets the back of my eyelids keep
in my red scar and bruises
it's only my beginning
and i have the feeling i'll go
where ever it is i want to go

    General CommentI think the song is about death and destruction and our attempt to avoid it. Whatever it is, its a bad ass song to see performed live

    General CommentRed scar and bruises is really "red sky hypnosis"

    if this is what she wants is really "if this is what you are"

    this is where you want is really "this is where you are"

    Justin Mauriello is really "amazing"

    General CommentWell, from doing a google of "black rose symbolism" and "red sky" black roses are apparently symbolic of death, but also of the end of a long journey or a farewell.

    Personally, I find to be the song about somebody who has died, and his/her reminiscence of his life and mortality from the afterlife.

    When he refers to his "bed of black roses", he's referring to his grave, and him being beneath the ground. The reference to looking at the back of his eyelids supports this, as most people usually are buried with their eyes closed. His red sky hypnosis could be sunup or sundown, but he seems to be referring to sunup, stating that it's only his beginning, possibly meaning there's life after death.

    when he says, "so you wanna believe all the things you've been told
    and all the promises that you won't grow old" it could mean he's talking about mortality.

    When he says, "in the life made up of strings being pulled by secret beings" he's talking about how people are merely puppets being jerked around by a higher power.

    And when he says, "everyone still walks with fear in their lives past the place where these stars go to die" he's talking about everybody is afraid of death, and how people tries to ignore the death going on around them. I thought he meant stars like as in movie stars or something at first, and than it clicked.

    General CommentI don't think it's about someone else dying, I think it's about him realising that death is inevitable and eventually he will die. So he decides that lifes to short to live with regret and he wants to rights all the wrongs he's done throughout his life because life is too short to worry about petty things like that.
