Beautiful in the dress I laid out for you
Let your hair down the way you always used to
The tile's cold, the tap is dripping
As I go to rinse my hands of you
And watch the pieces one by one wash away down the drain
I'll fake this mourning at your funeral
Dressed in black and trying not to laugh

Sleep tight my dear, this will be your last night here
Breathing among the living
I've got some plans for you
Sweet dreams, my love
It'll all be over soon
I'm waiting for the poison in your blood
To reach your heart

So cold and pale, laid[sounds like lied?] out before me
So weak and frail, quiet as can be
Peacfully sleeping for all eternity
No one will ever suspect me
Fingerprints and DNA won't give me away
I'll fake this mourning at your funeral
Dressed in black and trying not to laugh

Sleep tight my dear, this will be your last night here
Breathing among the living
I've got some plans for you
Sweet dreams, my love
It'll all be over soon
I'm waiting for the poison in your blood
To reach your heart

I brought your favorite flowers
Your mother said you would have loved them
I read your favorite poem out loud
And I'll break down, I'll break down
You said that I don't feel
That's why you could not live with me
I don't feel the least bit sad right now
How's that for irony?
I'll fake this mourning at your funeral
Dressed in black and trying not to laugh
(I can't help but laugh)

Sleep tight my dear, this will be your last night here
Breathing among the living
I've got some plans for you
Sweet dreams, my love
It'll all be over soon
I'm waiting for the poison in your blood
To reach your heart

    General Commenti dont LOVE these lyrics, they're kind of weird, but the song, and his voice, and everything about it makes it good.

    General CommentThe girl's dead but he can't bring himself to have any emotion.

    "You said that I don't feel
    That's why you could not live with me
    I don't feel the least bit sad right now
    How's that for irony?"
    Just brilliant lyrics.

    General CommentThe lyrics are kind of creepy to me. It sounds to me like he killed her, and he doesn't feel the least bit sorry about it..."The tile's cold, the tap is dripping
    As I go to rinse my hands of you" ... "Finger prints and DNA won't give me away."


    Still, I love this song, and it rocks, both the lyrics and music fit together perfectly.
