"Everyone I Love Is Dead" as written by and Peter Thomas Steele....
Seems three years
Though maybe four
Someone drops dead
Whom I adore
You love someone
There will be grief
The kiss of death
Lips of a thief

Goddamnit

A dusty stack
of photographs
Of times I've cried
But mostly laughed
Commit the past
Into blue flame
Acrid smoke
Cowardly shame

Goddamnit

At times I'm truly terrified
'Cause dope and booze
Don't help to hide
They're used to mask
A weakling's hurt
It's just like painting
Over dirt

Everyone I love is dead (ha-ha)

Life's a game I cannot win
Both good and bad
Must surely end
The mirrors
Always tell the truth
I love myself
For hating you

    General CommentYea, I think the meaning is pretty straight forward. Have you heard the song? It's awesome, man. If you haven't, you should go to the store and buy the cd right now (or download it, but the damn corporate people say that's wrong).

    General CommentIt is just like everyone said it is good and peter steele is better in person. I was in NYC when I saw him. And he doesnt say All dead when he says everyone I love is dead. Its ah ha. The person is mocking him.
