"The Mortician's Daughter" as written by and Andrew Biersack....
I open my lungs dear
I sing this song at funerals... no rush.
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush.
Baby boy you've held so tightly,
This pain it visits almost nightly
Missing hotel beds, I feel your touch.

I will await dear, a patience of eternity, my crush.
A universal still.
No rust.
No dust will ever grow on this frame,
One million years, and I will say your name.
I love you more than I can ever scream.

We booked our flight those years ago,
I said, "I love you, " as I left you.
Regrets still haunt my hollow head,
But I promised you I will see you again, again.

I sit here and smile dear.
I smile because I think of you and I blush.
These bleeding hollow dials... this fuss.
A fuss is made of miles and travels
When roadways are but stones and gravel.
A bleeding heart can conquer every crush.

We booked our flight those years ago
You said you loved me as you left me.
Regrets still haunt your saddened head,
But I promised you that I will see you,
We booked our flight those years ago
I said I loved you as I left you
Regret's no longer in my head,
But I promised you and now
I'm home again, again, again, I'm home again, again, again.

I'm home again.

    General CommentYeah like spivey said he wrote it about scout...i mean i would assume since her father is indeed a mortician. however, him and scout are no longer together.
