"The Flowers of Evil" as written by and Jeordie White Brian Hugh Warner....
The day they covered us in the dirt
Like stars in the ground
That will grow into dead flowers
The day they covered us in the dirt
Like stars in the ground
That will grow into dead flowers
Your body's on me

Like sleepless spiders
Your touch is so empty
Your touch is so empty
Your bodies on me like

Sleepless spiders
Your touch is so empty
Your touch is so empty
Your touch is so empty
Your touch is so empty

I've been running
From the bloodless
For fear of exile
For all of my sorceries
That shun the light
That shun the light

I've been running
From the bloodless
For fear of exile
For all of my sorceries
That shun the light
That shun the light

The day they covered us in the dirt
Like scars in the ground
That will grow into dead flowers

The day they covered us in the dirt
Like scars in the ground
That will grow into dead flowers

I've been running
From the bloodless
For fear of exile
For all of my sorceries
That shun the light
That shun the light

I've been running
From the bloodless
For fear of exile
For all of my sorceries
That shun the light
That shun the light

I've been running
From the bloodless
For fear of exile
For all of my sorceries
That shun the light
That shun the light

I've been running
From the bloodless
For fear of exile
For all of my sorceries
That shun the light
That shun the light

Light
Light
Light
Light

    Song MeaningThis song seems to be about him falling in love with a woman, as there are heavy references themes we've heard before:

    "The day they covered us in the dirt like stars in the ground that will grow into dead flowers."

    Obviously, the "us" refers to him and another person. But he's comparing them to well known figures becoming dead and idolised in the media.
    ---

    "Your bodies on me like sleepless spiders. Your touch is so empty."

    I find the first part to be self-explanitory. The second part seems to say that her touch doesn't quite satisfy him.
    ---

    "I’ve been running from the bloodless for fear of exile for all of my sorceries that shun the light."

    I'll leave this one up to someone else. I think I know what it means, but I can't explain it the way I understand it.

    General Comment"The day they covered us in the dirt
    like stars in the ground
    that will grow into dead flowers"

    started famous, but was masked with all of this hate and controversy. it will only ead to him being even more popular

    "I’ve been running
    from the bloodless
    for fear of exile
    for all of my sorceries
    that shun the light"

    i try to avoid these things that want to convict me or condemn me for going against their views

    General CommentI think he's sorta talking about a woman figure, as he starts saying
    "The day they covered us in the dirt
    like stars in the ground
    that will grow into dead flowers"
    so as we know from the bible the woman came out from the dust, dirt, that in this case would grow in to death flowers, so I think his saying this woman is cold and her touch is empty, so he would run away from her because she's bloodless and he's scare for being dumped or something...
    maybe reading "the flowers of evil" from Baudelaire, would give as a total different lecture o not so different, in fact I'm going to read it soon ! :)

    My InterpretationFear to loose yourself when you contact someone (or even something) blank, "bloodless"?
