"The Night Your Guardian Fell Asleep" as written by Christopher Rutledge Cargile, Adam Cory Harrell, Michael Christian Lamb, Jason Daniel Lowery and Jeremy Grant Lowery....
So write it down in lover's blood
There's gotta be a better way to break this spell
Send out a search party
Have you forgot how to love or how to die
I see the crosses behind your eyes
When will the fire burn out
Is it after we've covered our tracks
I'm not going to stay to find out
He never asked for much
If the fire burns out will it ever light up again
It's been so long since I've seen your eyes this cold
When did you let them step in
When did you let them take control
So sound the alarm
There's gotta be a better way to break this spell
Tell the whole world that I left without his love
At the chiming of the bells
I've been dreaming of elaborate schemes
Thought the love was good for a while
It's been much easier to leave
I've got a new life now
This couldn't have come at a worse time
I guess you had to find out about this
Unrequited love that I deny
You say you fell out of love
Well I call this abandonment

    General CommentI think this is the devil speaking. The girl dies and he wants to see the show. She used to be a Christian and slowly slipped away and turned her back on God. Her actions eventually led to her death and the devil is proud. He views this as entertainment "where's the show?"[show=movie; movie=entertaining]. The title relates to how her guardian angel was not t here to save her. Idk? That's just my point of view. Anyone else know anything?
