"Black Wedding" as written by and Meg/frampton Frampton....
You,
Were unaware that diamonds came with debt.
Ironic sure, but that's the way it is,
Got my vows off the internet.
You,
Say crying weakens my immune system,
But don't forget that if you pray for me
I'll pray for you and cash flow too,
Why not?
I said, if you pray for me I
'll pray for you and cash flow too, why not?

It was a black wedding,
You could hear the organs not,
The violins or the words the pope was saying.
It was a black wedding,
You could hear the organs but,
No drunken story or real hallelujahs.
Some people swore they saw the devil,
While most prayed they wouldn't last a winter.
It was a black wedding,
With those blessings all around.

So,
You're finally viewing this at five foot six.
It's not all roses like your mama said,
We're not spoon fed anymore.
So you gonna tell
All our kids I was an accident?
Ironic true,
But that's the way you act when you're upset
So let's take this outside.

We see our mirrors from outside,
And he said we are only pride,
We stay hidden all our lives.

It was a black wedding,
You could hear the organs not,
The violins or the words the pope was saying.
It was a black wedding,
You could hear the organs but,
No drunken story or real hallelujahs.
Some people swore they saw the devil.
But most prayed they wouldn't last a winter.
It was a black wedding,
With those blessings all around.

What else is there to know when our bible's here?
What else is there to know when our bible's here?
There are no lies to find when the page is bare
What else is there to know when your tax is shared?

Outside,
We're seeing mirrors from outside
And he said we are only pride
We stay hidden all our lives

It was a black wedding,
You could heard the organs,play
Words the pope was saying
It was a black wedding, you could hear the organs but,
No drunken story or real hallelujahs.

The gravedigger said it's his cathedral
We drank holy water like the wedding supper
It was a black wedding,
With those blessings all around
(what else is there to know when you're bibles here?)
It was a black wedding,
With those blessings all around
(What else is there to know when you're tax is shared?)
It was a black wedding,
With those blessings all around

    Lyrics to "Black Wedding" from future release, "Here, here, and here."
    Lyrics by: Dia Frampton

    You were unaware that diamonds came with debt. Ironic sure but that's the way it is, got my vows off the internet. You say, "Crying weakens my immune system." But don't forget that if you pray for me, I'll pray for you, and cash flow too, why not. I said, "If you pray for me, I'll pray for you, and cash flow too, why not?"

    It was a black wedding you could hear the organs, not the violins or the words the Pope was saying, was a black wedding, you could hear the organs but, no drunken snoring or real hallelujahs. Dumb people swore they saw the devil. While most prayed they wouldn't last a winter. It was a black wedding, throw those blessings all around.

    So, you're finally viewing this at 5 foot 6. It's not all "roses" like your momma said, we're not spoon fed anymore. So you gonna tell, all our kids I was an "accident," Ironic, true, but that's the way you act, when you're upset, so let's take this outside. We see our mirrors from outside. And he said, "We are only pride. We stay hidden all our lives."

    What else is there to know when our bible's here? What else is there to know when our bible's here? There are no lies to find when the page is bare. What else is there to know when your tax is shared?

    It was a black wedding you could hear the organs play.....words the Pope was saying. Was a black wedding you could hear the organs not, the violins or the words the Pope was saying, was a black wedding, you could, hear the organs but, no drunken snoring or real Hallelujahs.
    The Grave digger said, "It's this cathedral...." They drank holy water like animals at supper. It was a black wedding, throw your blessings all around.

    Word from Dia: Dear listeners, friends, and haters. Muah! I just wanted to write a quick note on "Black Wedding," and why it was written, and what I intended it to be. Most songs, I like the listener to decipher their own stories, ideas, and perceptions of what it "really means." So, whenever someone comes up to me at a show and asks, "Dia. I have been dying to know: What is "Roses" about?" Or..."What is -such and such-about?" I find the most appropriate answer, (as well as the answer that pisses all people off) to be: "You. It is all about you." And then walk away. But when I say that, it is very true.
    However, this song touches up on things that EVERYONE is very, well, touchy about. Religion. This song was not meant to offend, only to inspire. It was not meant to point fingers, only to provoke thought. This is not saying, "Your religion is bad. False. A figment of your imagination." No, not at all. I am not God. And I have no set religion, or in other words, I am spiritual, or agnostic. However, agnostic in turn usually means you are undecided, while I think, for the most part, I do have somewhat of solid ground underneath me, although, like many, I am still very curious about religions, love to learn about theology itself, etc. This song is praising religion, if you so wish it too. "Black Wedding" tips its hat at the firm Mormon believer. The reader of scriptures and Prayer book. The clean Virgin, the sweet Sunday Class. "Black Wedding" respects the avid reader of the best selling book of all time: The Bible. It appreciates the Catholic who believes with all their heart. The Christian that loves Jesus, and inspires to form a relationship with God and learn to be selfless, to love as Jesus loved others. However, "Black Wedding" Scorns the unknowledgeable church goer. In other words, it is not a fan of the child who is -insert whatever religion here- because his parents believe it and not himself. It does not look well upon the man who turns -insert religion here- simply because it is trendy, or because his girlfriend will not accept him as a decent human being because he is not what she deems is RIGHT. "Black Wedding" is heartbroken at the quick marriages only to satisfy infatuated sexual desire, and also laughs at the dependent son of God who repents just as avidly and quickly as he does the same sins, again, and again. And all in all, "Black Wedding" believes that God has better things to do, then make sure your sons baseball team wins. Hopefully, he doesn't care. I mean, I hope God enjoys basketball as much as I do, but I hope that is all that he does with it: enjoy. (Unless he is an awesome 3 point shooter, because that would rule my life).
    Anyways, Black wedding is about my thoughts on marriage, on love, religion, and my belief in ...long engagements. Haha. It was not meant to offend at all. But it is my true thoughts, and that is what I am here for. I have been called a "sell out" many times in my life, but only when I start to write what I do not feel strongly for, is when I will believe it to be true.
    I hope you enjoy the song, no matter if you are married, in love, engaged, Buddhist, Atheist, Christian, or a single, pathetic nerd like me...(Don't worry, Valentines' Day is coming to rub it in our faces a bit more).
    And gee whiz Canada is soooo cold. The high today was negative 10 degrees!
    much love
    Dia
