"Acoustic Funeral (For Love in Limbo)" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
You missed the winter and it followed you back home
Where sun kissed the crimson footsteps in the melting snow
We are doing our best to disown the golden mean
By these acts of cruelty in the name of beauty to be free

[Chorus]
The acoustic funeral for love in limbo
We're dancing with tags on our toes
I save my last breath for your window
To write you this song
For the acoustic funeral

On the verge of a vow to kill all reason locking that door
To a nightmare within a nightmare we are bound to adore
Let the planchette in the shape of heart glide to you
And finally confirm all fears to be so real

It's so real.

[Chorus]

It's unreal underneath the ice so thin I am turning blue
The one last thing I know to be real is the shadow of you
Killing love with a kiss

[Chorus: x2]

Let's re-enact the fall for the acoustic funeral

    General Comment"oh lord what a weird title right? Well everybody -ya know, who knows the history of rock n' roll bit and, and should know that there's a song by um black sabbath called uh electric funeral, so obviously that's our tribute to uh them, it doesn't have anything to do with their music actually or their song, but uh I was thinking more of T.S. Elliot, that how things and kinda, quiet and without a word... It's the weird- it's one of the oddball tracks of the album, it's uhm -I call it the lullaby from hell, it's very kinda this mortal- this mortal coil kinda ethereal kinda vibe mixed up with um, with the um, distorted guitars and all the usual HIM crap. Uh, the lyrics kinda not necessarily vague but they're very, not wordy, pseudo poetic i'd say and -and obviously because of all their weirdness it is my favorite, it's probably my favorite song from the album... the acoustic funeral for love in limbo, we're dancing with tags on our toes, i save my last breath for your window, to write you this song, for the acoustic funeral -that's the lyric from the uh -from the chorus, and *sighs -you know we're dancing with tags on our toes just sounds so sweet. It's that particular song and that particular melody and all that, it's just a- it's like a momentamory type of thing. ya know, remember death for i still alive and seize the day... How many times -ya know, lets say a relationship that ends usually never ends with a bang or with a, -it just ends in silence, it just ends in a moment of utter silence where -none of the participants say or can muster another word, its just -everything's all and said... First was a, you missed the winter and it followed you back home, where sun kissed the crimson footsteps on the melting snow, we are doing our best to disown the golden mean by these acts of cruelty in the name of beauty to be free. stuff like that- itsoundsactuallyprettypoetic. its like high school poem *laughs but uh jr. high yea. so its like premature ejaculation in poetry." :D -Ville Valo
