"A Vulgar Picture" as written by and Brian Eschbach Zachary Gibson....
Now the funeral grounds are at last awash
With the blackness of this frigid autumn night
I've lurked into the graveyard with pick and spade in tow
This night shall birth forth our reckoning
Hell's jaws, now open wide

A stare to pierce six feet of soil
A love beyond this mortal coil

As though you'd never left my side,
I hold your stiffened body so close to me
For years I've lived in a dream
Awake, I felt as dead as my cold and bloodless bride to me

I can barely suppress my elation!
My blood is racing as I strike the lid
A quick pry of the casket reveals her body, paralyzed
So long I've waited for this moment,
To thrust my fingers deep inside!

Now you will (sing) the song of the deceased
The ones whose souls will never rest in peace!

The throes of necromantic lust
Possess my mind
Cries of my precious frozen angel beckon from inside

I feel alive! for once I'm feeling so alive
My skin is crawling,
I'm completed on this resurrection night

(from this night achieved) a morbid truth
Love's bounds post-mortally removed

(chorus)

In rapture my mind is lured by my own knife
To join this frrrragile being who sleeps below
The reflection of a razor reveals the moon, so perfectly
Along my impatient veins its steel does/doth graze
With the kiss of suicide!

I feel no pain as I (am entwined) lay with my love-ly bride
The silk lining now stained with my offering
I embrace the end of my now worthless life

    General CommentPlain old sex with the dead..and then he commits suicide and lays there with her peacefully for eternity, at least until somebody comes and fucks him.

    General CommentI don't know if I'm the only one, but I'm just not hearing some of the things here.
    Commonly with bands, the lyrics will be written and printed but in the recording the singer will change a word here and there.
    I think that's what happened here, because certain parts of this just don't sound like what's written down, at all.
    They're small little corrections here and there, but in the actual recording I hear:

    Now the funeral grounds are at last awash
    With the blackness of this frigid autumn night
    I lurked into the graveyard with pick and spade in tow
    This night shall birth forth our reckoning
    Hell's jaws, now open wide

    A stare to pierce six feet of soil
    A love beyond this mortal coil

    As though you never left my side,
    I hold your stiffened body so close to me
    For years I've lived in a dream
    Awake, I felt as dead as my cold and bloodless bride-to-be

    I can barely suppress my elation!
    My blood is racing as I strike the lid
    A quick pry of the casket reveals her body, paralyzed
    How long I've waited for this moment,
    To thrust my fingers deep inside!

    Now you will live the song of the deceased
    The ones whose souls will never rest in peace!

    The throes of necromantic lust infest my mind
    Cries of my precious frozen angel beckon from inside

    I feel alive! For once I'm feeling so alive
    My skin is crawling,
    I'm completed on this resurrection night

    This night reveals a morbid truth
    Love's bounds post-mortally removed

    As though you never left my side,
    I hold your stiffened body so close to me
    For years I've lived in a dream
    Awake, I felt as dead as my cold and bloodless bride-to-be

    In rapture my mind is lured by my own knife
    To join this fragile being who sleeps below
    The reflection of a razor reveals the moon so perfectly
    Along my impatient veins its steel does graze
    With the kiss of suicide!

    I feel no pain as I lay with my lover and bride
    The silk lining now stained with my offering
    I embrace the end of my now worthless life

    well, he's going to the graveyard at night. self explanitory. and he figures that once he's done doing what he's doing, he's going to hell.

    "A stare to pierce six feet of soil
    A love beyond this mortal coil"

    he will love her even if she's dead.

    "As though you'd never left my side,
    I hold your stiffened body so close to me
    For years I've lived in a dream
    Awake, I felt as dead as my cold and bloodless bride to me"

    even though she's dead, he still loves her the same and he dosen't care. for years... blah like it's been unreal without her there i guess.

    "I can barely suppress my elation!
    My blood is racing as I strike the lid
    A quick pry of the casket reveals her body, paralyzed
    So long I've waited for this moment,
    To thrust my fingers deep inside!"

    oh man, he's so excited because he finally gets to.. mmm uh thrust her with his fingers.

    "Now you will sing the song of the deceased
    The ones whose souls will not rest in peace!"

    who caress...

    "The throes of necromantic lust
    Possess my mind
    Cries of my precious frozen angel beckon from inside"

    necromantic is a sweet word. =] but yes, he's lusting after his dead uh sex buddy and she's just beconing him to.. ehh uh rawr.

    "I feel alive! For once I'm feeling so alive
    My skin is crawling,
    I'm completed on this resurrection night"

    he feels like the part of him that has been missing since she died has been replaced.

    "From this night achieved a morbid truth
    Love's bounds post-mortally removed"

    he can still love her even if she's dead.. blah.

    "As though you'd never left my side,
    I hold your stiffened body so close to me
    For years I've lived in a dream
    Awake, I felt as dead as my cold and bloodless bride to me"

    already explained.

    "In rapture my mind is lured by my own knife
    To join this fragile being who sleeps below
    The reflection of a razor reveals the moon, so perfectly
    Along my impatient veins its steel does graze
    With the kiss of suicide!"

    he's going to kill himself so he can be with her. ad he's happy about it.

    "I feel no pain as I lay with my lovely bride
    The silk lining now stained with my offering
    I embrace the end of my now worthless life"

    he's dying, there's blood on the coffin, and then he dies.

    the end.
    that was an easy one.

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who robs a grave and either ejaculates on the body or commits suicide and leaves blood on the body. It's pretty obvious.
