The last time that I saw you,
August of '99,
I should have had my hammer and a few rusty spikes,
To nail you on a wall,
And use bottles to catch your blood,
Display you for the neighbors,
So they know your time had come,

And I'd drink your blood,
Feel it dripping down my throat,
And heading for my heart

And as your body sags,
And the stench rises in vain,
The people on the street are collecting in dismay,
Before their eyes,
Your head lifts towards the sky,
And that's the last thing I remember of you,

Cuz I drank your blood
Feel it dripping down my throat,
And heading for my heart

You become a ghost,
You're floating somewhere in between,
The waking world,
And a landscape of dreams,

Well it is nothing but dying,
You've got a grenade stuck ni your teeth,
And you're pulling at the pin,
You're an illusion,
Just a shadow flickering underneath the sun

And I'd drink your blood,
I feel it dripping down my throat,
And heading for my heart

    General CommentI think this song has to do with an ex-girl who was doing stupid things and did all the wrong things so she killed herself and everybody watched? haha.I dunno what to think about this song except it ROCKS! Maybe... because he says "Well it's nothing but dying" . . . GRRR! I can't figure this one out. Help Please!

    General Commenti don't think its just about killing this person...i think you have to question why he would want to do it, and how he feels like its ok. maybe he also wants this person to see how beautiful they are, or save them in some way. it sort of seems like some crazy lust to me. the way he wants to drink their blood, and keep a part of them with him....

    but yeah, check the posts on the real song

    General CommentI love how hatered can be so fufilling. I belive Chris is saying that someone has poisoned his heart and the only revenge is to kill them. The problem is the poison doesnt subside even in death becuase the ghost of the girl haunts him forever. And he will never forget the lesson he learned. It's kinda like 'How can you forget someone you can't forgive?'
