there's a field of flowers, and they smell like you
and i go walking through them
well, if you remember me
you know i'd love to pick one, for my lapel
but you know, there's too many insects watching
i'm afraid they'll tell on me

and here the skies another day, no a night
in this place where i close my eyes
it's like my skin to try so hard to hold it back
there's an explosion it comes raining down
you smiled, you smiled at me

anastasia, you're disappearance is the thorn in my side
anastasia, you know your absence is the thorn in my side

i think about you every night and every day
every moment sence you left here
you were the one that got away
as they say, everyone has an anastasia

anastasia, you're disappearance is the thorn in my side
anastasia, you know your absence is the thorn in my side

i kept your room just how you left it
there's not a toy out of sight
just in case the fates are kind
and you come back to me
i don't wanna live without my little anastasia

anastasia, you're disappearance is the thorn in my side
little anastasia, you know you're absence is the thorn in my side
little anastasia, you're disappearance is the thorn in my side
little anastasia, and only you can take the thorn from my side.

    Song MeaningI personally asked Voltaire who the song was about in his last show at Webster Hall. He said it was about the daughter of a Russian Czar who went missing named Anastasia but, in his own imagination he wrote the song in the perspective of the father and the rest of the family being dead and existing in another realm where they don't have Anastasia because she hasn't died yet which would explain the very abstract metaphors. Since Anastasia was the youngest of the Russian Family, it would make sense if all the other members died of old age and were waiting for their daughter that went missing to die as well so they can all reunite in the other "plane of existence" where spirits live after death.

    By saying everyone has an Anastasia, he's saying that everyone has someone who will miss them after their death, who would also be soon reunited in the afterlife.

    These are the actual song lyrics meaning, not my interpretation.

    General CommentThe lyrics are a few words wrong.

    But, this is such a sweet and sad song! Brilliantly written. Again, Voltaire hits that soft spot on our hearts. And he does it with such persision...

    General CommentIt is likely a song about having loved and lost using the disappearance of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia as an analogy.
    To learn more, see wikipedia.

    General CommentThis is supposed to be like a ballad. Voltaire is playing Joseph (anastasias father, I think) and making this sad song because when Russia was invaded, Anastasia disappeared
