"Rusted Over Wet Dreams" as written by Frank Palmeri, Jesse Ketive, Mark Davis, Joseph Lionetti and Benjamin Lionetti....
No words could ever describe the feeling.
The feeling of holding onto your ghost.
But if there's just one more thing I could ask you.
Just one more request.
Please don't ever forget me.

No, don't you ever forget.
Everyday it's getting harder just to turn the page.
I keep replaying and reciting those mistakes you made.
And I'm trying to take my own advice.
That things will change.
But who am I kidding?
I'm so afraid.
That things will change.

I want you to know how it feels.
To be in love with the ghost that bears your name.
Know that my love was not in vein.
And I'm trying to take my own advice.
That things will change.
But who am I kidding?
I'm so afraid.
That things will change.

But if there's one regret we can share.
What shall we name him?
WHAT SHALL WE NAME OUR DEAD SON!

    General Commentobviously this song is about
    a guy ranting about how mad he
    is at this girl, he was GOING to have
    a baby with.
    "I keep replaying and reciting those mistakes you made."
    the mistake is, she got an abortion.
    he either really wanted to be a father,
    or is totally against abortion.
    "I want you to know how it feels.
    To be in love with the ghost that bears your name."
    the ghost that bears her name, being the baby.

    i dont know why it only got one comment,
    i really like this song,
    and this band. [=

    General CommentFrank (the singer) got his girlfriend at the time pregnant. She dumped him and got an abortion. Which explains the "what shall we name our dead son?"

    General Commentthe story of the album is he was engaged to this girl who was pregnant with his kid. she cheated on him then left him and aborted the kid. the end.


    if u ask me its the heaviest album of all time just because u can hear his true anger and bitterness in his vocals

    fuck all those stupid death metal bands that talk about cutitn people open and shit that shits not realistic this shit is real

    Actually, what happened was Frank Palmeri was in a long, roller coaster relationship with his girlfriend and behind his back she got an abortion. It wasn't due to complications or anything like that.

    General CommentIf the bottom part is indeed about abortion (which I'm guessing is right), then maybe Travis Bickle, the heart-beat track, is a link to this song.


    I don't the significance of the name Travis Bickle is though, it seems irrelevant to the vocalist of this band.

    General Commentwell its about a chick he must've had alot of feelings for and he got her pregnant and she broke up with him and had an abortion. telling by the lyrics, it hurt him alot. and he keeps telling himself things will get better and they dont. now he just wants her to know the pain he's feeling. How he loved his unborn son.
