"Halloween" as written by Rob Zombie, Norman Cabrera, Kevin Hair and Garrett Stephen Immel....
I've Decided I'm done. Don't care to move on.
Not used to losing someone. If I lost faith, was no choice I made.
I'll accept the excuse of no one.
Your careful silence can't replace, your stupid smile.
Casseroles and Handshakes, can't restore 12 damn years of ours.
You stole me.

[chorus]
I don't care to try again. They said, "Time will heal, and time will mend,"
But on Halloween, the last time you left
If I knew, you were never coming back,
I would have, Held on to that last day, instead of, "Here's your keys,"
the last thing I'd say would be "I love you."
and Just in case,
"I'm only myself when I'm with you baby."

Take down my mirror, my pictures of costumes, and youth.
Throw aside posters, and books, and aged fortunes and all that reminds me of you.
With a pat on the back they say, "Honey, it's time to move on. I'm sure we can find you a hobby, now that he's gone."
They stole you.

[chorus]

They don't understand. We were like this since the first time we met.
We were born holding hands.
Give me flowers and cards, I'll smile all they want
If they give me what I want.
Just give me what I want.

[chorus]

... I'll be with you someday

    General CommentYeah Dia mentioned it was a song for a friend who had someone very dear pass away. Pretty straight forward song.

    -Casseroles and Handshakes, can't restore 12 damn years of ours.
    You stole me.

    -With a pat on the back they say, "Honey, it's time to move on. I'm sure we can find you a hobby, now that he's gone."
    They stole you.

    -They don't understand. We were like this since the first time we met.

    General Commentthought I would add this also...

    The Song is called, "Halloween." (Oh how convenient! Ya, we actually have some more songs in the works lately. Meg and I have been feeling really emotional and musical lately. We have new songs called, "Turkey day" and "The 4th of July" as well.
    No. No no no no. No. NO. The coincidence that it is October, and the coincidence that the song is called Halloween, are simply...well, coincidence. Ok? We do not see Pumpkins in the street and run home to our guitars because we are so inspired to write. Sorry. We don't. That is why we have bands such as X and also, another, exhibit X. (Not gonna name names. I am not that big of a weiner! I hope. My mom says I am not). (By the way, my mom, ((who is asian and says...uh, funny english things sometimes)) (It is her second language! Give her a break!) said, the other day, as my little sister came limping in from basketball practice with a sprained ankle.) "Oh Yoboe (that means, sweetheart in korean), Nikki twisted her winkle!" If you don't find that funny. Don't listen to our music. I can't stand the thought of someone listening to our music without a sense of humor.
    Anyways, this song is actually quite factual. It is about close related friends and amazing people in our lives, and more or less, THEIR story, through our music and lyrics and thoughts. They shall remain unnamed, out of respect for them, but we just want to say to those persons, "Thank you for sharing bits and pieces of your beautiful life with us." This...story, happened on Halloween. Hence, the name. Smart you are! The story, must live on mostly in your imagination, and we have given you a lot to work with! Again, out of respect and privacy for those persons, I will not explain as religiously and excitedly as I normally do. (For those who read my silly blogs and journals). This song was written by Meg, and was recorded in her small bedroom in Florida, on her small computer, with her beloved guitar she has had since high school. The string programming and all the effects were made by her magical ear. Don't whine to me about bad quality recordings. I love the sound of a well produced song and Record, but I also will never lose the love I have...for, well, as I call them, "Living room" or "basement" recorded songs. They are recorded with as much time as we want, with as much love as we want, and with not exactly the right, or "correct" padding on the wall, reverberating wooden ceilings, or thousand dollar microphones.
    But they are real. They are simple. My voice is one take. So it is not perfect, (not saying it ever was! Ha). But it is a moment in time captured...and not chopped up. Not...selective of the best vowels. It is love.

    General CommentSo one of my friends actually wrote it about a friend of hers that passed away… It’s a song about death in a serious and respectful way about a holiday that’s not respectful.”

    -dia.


    that was off a video, they were discussing the song.
    look it up if you want
    :|

    except one year less and before halloween
