"Black Rose Dying" as written by and Craig Edward/frisby Mabbitt....
Gouge out, your eyes, pull your, heart to the floor,
With my heart my skin my kiss, stand back drop to your knees,
I'll stand back as you bleed, my heart my skin my kiss
This blade it feels so cold, baby hold me while, I'm shaken,
This knife has pierced my soul, I sit alone while, I'm shaken
And yes I'll laugh out loud, with blind eyes, I'm shaken

Gouge out, your eyes, pull your heart to the floor,
Sweetness love me, tastes me, hears me,
Stand back drop to your knees,
I'll stand back as you bleed,
Sweetness love me, tastes me, hears me

This blade it feels so cold, baby hold me while, I'm shaken,
This knife has pierced my soul, I sit alone while, I'm shaken,
And yes I'll laugh out loud, with blind eyes I'm shaken

Now take me out of this place
Now take me out of this place
Out, take me out, take me out, take me, out,
Out, take me out, take me out, take me, out
Take me, take me, take me out

Gouge out, your eyes, pull your, heart to the floor,
With my heart my skin my kiss
Stand back drop to your knees,
I'll stand back as you bleed with my heart my skin my kiss
Yes I am,yes I am,yes I am, yes I am
My heart my skin my kiss

Gouge out, your eyes, pull your, heart to the floor,
With my heart my skin my kiss. stand back, drop to your knees.
I'll stand back as you bleed,
Sweetness love me, tastes me, hears me

Wait for them to come again, and take you away from me
I can't wait for you to come again and take you, black rose dying

    General Commentanybody know any other bands that have the same kind of screaming that craig can do?!?!? I MISS HIM!!! dont know y BTF wouldnt let him back in.....he really made this band who they are...if you listen to the new stuff with beau they toned it WAYYYY down and now craig is in escape the fate and they dont even utilize his full singing/screaming potential....it sucks......craig had a few songs in his side project The World Alive but i dont think he is in that anymore either... :(

    General CommentUnpopular opinion:
    I think that this song is about someone loving someone but they're not together anymore
    like when he says "gouge our your eyes" it means he doesn't want her to see the pain he's in because of her and "pull your heart to the floor" so that she could'nt love anyone except him again or that he didn't want her to feel sorrow for him.

    "this blade it feels so cold, baby hold me while i'm shaking" means that he obviously cut himself due to depression about her and "hold me while i'm shaking" because after you cut yourself you feel a shock which actually might shake you.

    "i'll stand back as you bleed" is him waiting for her to do the same as he did for her.

    "this knife has pierced my soul" means he won't ever feel the same again
    "yes i'll laugh out with blind eyes" mocking her as what she's doing, she can't she the pain he's in so she feels perfectly fine.
    "take me out of this place" suicide.



    -i'm not saying this is what it actually means, it's just my opinion on this song.

    General CommentI like the song, but, wow, that's really graphic! I was surprised when I found out they were a Christian band. This was the first song I had ever heard and I thought for sure they were, well, not Christian.
