She's got too many troubles on her mind. her father told her to leave this was too much trauma. For a poor widower's soul.
she was once happy, before she killed him and buried him beneath the sand
God cant save her now she's going to the guillotine
Her soul can now be forever torched but her body will remain here with me...
So I guess you can say I love a corpse but thats just insane

I awoke last night to hear the screaming of a child but it wasn't mine. I doubt this fairytale will put me back to sleep, but what the hell...

I opened the bathroom door and there on the floor wrapped in towels was a small child
so they say she was bearing a child when she was put to death but now my imagination is going too far.
So I went to a man in white to ask for help.
He said move to the south to find redemption, why the south I don't know but you must trust me...Then the man in white fell to his knees...

To my former self this is my scrapbook
I'll paint my walls you'll see me there
I've seen a masterpiece covered in blood
he's a ghost a broken dream, access my mind make me a believer, 'cause the four-horsemen of the apocalypse are coming and they are not bringing flowers
keep me awake, you'll find we have something in common
yes sir

    General CommentThis Is A Story Of How A Woman Leaves Home Pregnant Because Her Father Wanted Her To. Then There Wa Her Child Left With Him And A Man In White Wanted Him To Find Redemption, But (WHATATWIST!) He Dies I Guess. The Ending I Don't Get.

    This Bands Is Amazing, Every Song Just Has A Hook In It To Remember, This Ones Being "I Woke Last Night To Her At Screaming Of A Child... Etc"

    Sex.

    General CommentI'm not sure. It seems to me like her father is helping her escape away from the act she has done in killing her husband. And now the singer explains how his love is going into eternal damnation...

    it more depressing the Data....

    i think the child just plays into the role of making everything seem so dark and fragile, and with the child being helpless i think the listener feels a sense of hopelessness.

    General CommentI think it sounds like

    "You can save her now, she's going to the guillotine"

    General CommentWell the whole story about the girl and the baby and whatnot I don't exactly understand. But I know that the line "'cause the four-horsemen of the apocalypse are coming and they are not bringing flowers" is a quote from the movie The Jacket. And the parts about staying awake and dreaming and all that sounds alot like the movie. I dunno, its like the general idea of the movie with a different plot.

    Such an amazing song.

    General CommentI don't really have anything to contribute about what the song could be about, but I really love the line "Keep me awake, you'll find we have something in common."
