Removal of the eyes gives my heart a sudden chill. I preserve them in formaldehyde to gaze upon at will. How their greenish flecks befell me that starlit winter's night, how I lost all that I ever was while locked within their sight.

Before you sits a broken man with your fragile pinkish heart in hand. Peculiar how it can hurt so bad while love is only in the mind. I sew the gaping chestwound, each thread is made with love. The bosom where I would rest my face is covered in your blood.

No, this is not the end, you'll live on eternally. Oh, lord, it's not the end, my secret you'll forever be.

I interrupt this transformation, a familiar lust swelling in me- a long and soulfull kiss. The shades are drawn, the living world can't see the coil of entrails. How curious the smell so pungent to my eager nostrils, hands further compelled.

No, it's not the end, forever you'll be in my arms. I could never let you go, my darling cold and blue. I wonder, are you dreaming still spread eagle, blood removed. I weave the sucking trocar beneath your bruising skin. Tonight I'll lay beside you, darling, in necromantic sin.

[Solo]

Pinned to the bed sheets like a prized butterfly, you're mine. I hear your voice so precious echoing deeply inside. I did my best to love you while you did live and beathe. This tender taxidermy token of the bereaved.

I could never let you go, my darling cold and blue. I wonder, are you dreaming still spread eagle, blood removed. I weave the sucking trocar beneath your bruising skin. Tonight I'll lay beside you, darling, in necromantic sin.

    General CommentI beliieve this song is about someone who is into necromancy and necrophelia. Possibly even someone who does autopsies. So while doing the personal taxidermy (or business), this person gets an overwhelming feeling that they have felt before. A feeling that they need to fulfill by performing sexual acts with the body he/she is working on. (a familiar lust swelling in me- a long and soulful kiss.

    This is a great song. The lyrics are amazing and the guitars and drums as well. Great work.

    General CommentI reckon the song is about some dude whose lost someone he loved a whole load. And even in death he still feels for them. Also feelings of misery / longing 'I could never let you go, my darling', 'I wonder are you dreaming still?'

    General CommentThis song is based on an old Italian horror movie called Beyond the Darkness, a favorite of Trevor Strnad's.

    If you see the movie, and re-read the lyrics, you'll make the connection. Great fuckin' love song by these dudes.

    General Commentthis song is actually about Carl Tanzler, who became obsessed with a cuban american women and dug up her body and kept it preserved for seven years until it was discovered by the cops

    General Commentto theadict66 thank you lol. That is exactly what it is about. Research the story, and youll see how much sense it makes. Like the " I sew the gaping chestwound" part. Car Tanzler filled her chest with rags and whatnot to make her seem normal and alive. He also put a deathmask on her face to hide the decompostion. Sick song, gives me goosebumps because the first time I heard that story was from my dad when I was like 12. never thought id hear a song about it. GO TBDM!

    General CommentI don't believe the skin would bruise unless the body was still alive.

    General CommentWhat you must never forget is that Trevor enjoys shocking his fans, so it's reasonable that his version differs from the original.

    "The bosom where I would rest my face is covered in your blood."
    The corpse which he has sex with could potentially be his own mother.
