"Dying Breed" as written by and Marissa Nadler....
Red is a color of memory
Blue was a way to green
And, darling, you did gamble
'Cause you were a dying breed
Yes, you were dying breed

Yellow -- the color of your skin
Black was the color of your hair
Your earthly days have passed you by
Where, oh where, oh where did you go
When they took your bones, now?

Red is a color of memory
Blue was a way to green
And, darling, you did gamble
'Cause you were a dying breed
Yes, you were dying breed

Frank, this song is for you, love,
And for your curly hair
Your earthly days have passed you by,
Where, oh where, oh where did you go
When they took your bones, now?
